We are both great competitors and we are both here to win the game for our country.

Nearly two years have passed since the last game between these sides.

Gunathilaka is only in the squad as a replacement for the injured Chamara Kapugedera, while Kusal Perera had to pull out of the tournament this week after tearing his hamstring during that India game - Dhananjaya de Silva has been called up.

Having dismissed South Africa for 191, two-time champions India cruised home with 12 overs to spare at The Oval.

South Africa also have one win from their two matches and can reach the last four with a victory in south London, making it a victor takes all clash. "So there's no room for complacency in a tournament like this, and we as a team certainly don't feel that".

South Africa was expected to be left behind after producing an even worse innings than the 219 they scored against Pakistan on Wednesday.

Travers. "If it turns out like this, it's hard to see it as a ringing endorsement for a second referendum", he said. In contrast, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn toured the country drawing large crowds to open-air rallies.

India captain Virat Kohli is determined to ensure that will not be his team. Going by past record the South Africans have been brilliant at the league stage where the players know there is always the next game but in a knockout position is where they have failed and let themselves and their team down. Parnell didn't impress in the first two games and the exciting Phehlukwayo takes his place.

"From a batting perspective, I hope that Fakhar Zaman continues to play the way he did against South Africa".

The impetus was never with them thereafter as they lost regular wickets, they were also restricted to 219.

De Villiers emphasised the importance of staying calm, while Kohli insisted India had not done much wrong against Sri Lanka.

The other aspect that the Indians must rectify is they must need to give powerful act in the innings as the tournament requires so.

The man who replaced Kapugedera, Danushka Gunathilaka struck a quick 76 against India as he opened the batting in the place of Upul Tharanga.

The FSU baseball team won its fifth consecutive game Saturday, and the opening game in the Super Regional against Sam Houston St. He struggled to throw strikes and the Bearkats loaded the bases via a walk, single and a fielding error committed by Holton.

"New-ball bowlers Mohammad Amir and Junaid Khan must get breakthroughs to put pressure on Sri Lanka".

"We will have to sit down and think of how we match up against the opposition that we're playing against", said Kohli.

The most costly of those was the dismissal of captain AB de Villiers after he had looked back to his best with the bat, scoring 16 from 12 balls, before he was run out by Hardik Pandya.

Yes, MS Dhoni once again manifested a craft piece of his glove work that saw him getting the Protea skipper AB de Villiers out in an epic manner.

Perera also made a telling contribution before having to retire hurt, and Mathews said: "It's a shame to lose Kusal, he batted extremely well - but Dhananjaya de Silva is also a very good player". Such matches raise the tempo and the spirit of the team, he said, and it is something he "craves" for.

"Look, I'm still in good form", De Villiers told reporters on Saturday.
