Champions Trophy 2013 Live Score - India vs Sri Lanka Scorecard
Indian Captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and elected to field against Sri Lanka in the second semifinal of the ICC Champions Trophy 2013 at the Cardiff Wales Stadium in Cardiff on Thursday (June 20).
Heavy early morning showers meant the pitch was under covers till 30 minutes before the rescheduled toss time of 10:40am (local). However, no changes were made to the playing conditions after the umpires inspected the outfield, which meant it was still a 50-over contest at the time of the toss.
India, coming off an emphatic eight-wicket win in a rain-truncated match against Pakistan in Birmingham, went in with an unchanged line-up, while Sri Lanka, who edged out Australia by 20 runs in their final league tie, brought in Jeevan Mendis and Thisara Perera for Dinesh Chandimal, who is out with a groin strain, and Shaminda Eranga respectively.
India: Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Dinesh Karthik, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (capt, wk), Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishant Sharma, Umesh Yadav.
Sri Lanka: Kusal Perera, Lahiru Thirimanne, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Kumar Sangakkara (wk), Mahela Jayawardene, Jeevan Mendis, Angelo Mathews (capt), Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara, Lasith Malinga, Rangana Herath.
