Despite a lacklustre performance from their top order, Sri Lanka has managed to put a respectable 264 on board, courtesy of an Angelo Mathews century. Indian bowlers, on the other hand, failed to have any impact in the middle overs in Shami's absence.

Meanwhile, fans on Twitter, who have been quite vocal about Indian team's performances in this World Cup, also joined in on the fun.
Matthews reaches his hundred off 115 balls. It’s been a masterclass in moving through the gears. #INDvSL— Joi Baba Felunath (@avishekmullick2) July 6, 2019

Thank you Mathew for putting some runs on the board for us
I want to see Rohit and Virat bat and score a ton 😍
India hasn't conceded a century until the match against England where Bairstow scored a ton and India lost the match. Here Angelo Matthews has scored a ton..#INDvSL— . (@_cleanbowled) July 6, 2019
Harsha Bhogle trying to troll Sanjay Manjrekar as well: "He brings a lot of value into the team" #INDvSL— Trendulkar (@Trendulkar) July 6, 2019

So glad Bumrah wasnt rested for this. Keep him razor sharp, while other knives gather dust in the drawer. #INDvSL— Gabbbar (@GabbbarSingh) July 6, 2019
India needs 265 to win this match. Meanwhile, Indian fans will also be hoping that SA beats Australia so that India gets to the no.1 spot on the points table and faces New Zealand in the semi-final instead of England.
