Jadeja could play in Leeds

After opting to play three pacers in the previous match, India could go back to their previous tactics and team composition considering the pitch at Headingley.

Kuldeep Yadav could be brought back into the team in place of Bhuvaneshwar Kumar. Ravindra Jadeja, who hasn't played a single match in this competition, also seems like a good option for the Indian skipper Virat Kohli. Other than this, India is unlikely to make any more changes as they look to win this match and finish on the top of the points table.

Sri Lanka out for winning one more for their pride

Sri Lanka has tried quite a few combinations during this World Cup and after the win against West Indies, it seems that they will finally stick to the same XI.

This would mean that the much-experienced Suranga Lakmal will be on the sidelines when his team plays their last match of the tournament.

The weather forecast for Leeds doesn't seem very pleasing. Rain could come during the match which could potentially shorten the match. The pitch should be quite dry on the surface as there has been continuous sunlight in the area in the last few days. It is a good batting track and barring initial hiccups, batsmen won't face a lot of issues.
