India and Sri Lanka, the two neighbours have enjoyed a great rivalry in cricket in the past. It is only in recent times that Sri Lanka cricket has faced a dearth of quality players who can lead their country at the international level.

A lot of IND vs SL head-to-head matches have been one-sided affairs with the Island failing to stand tall against the might of India's depth across formats. 

For a long time, India and Sri Lanka were together touted as two powerhouses, especially in limited-overs cricket.

The two nations have played some remarkably close and intense matches across formats. 

The ICC World Cup Final 2011 could be regarded as a premier India vs Sri Lanka clash at the pinnacle of the sport.

The likes of Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, and others took guard for the Islanders while Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, and the likes led India's baton.

India vs Sri Lanka Head to Head in ODI World Cup

A lot has changed since then, the players, the coaches, and the style of cricket, but the emotions still remain as India will go against Sri Lanka in Match 33 of the ICC Men's ODI World Cup 2023 on Thursday, November 2, at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

India and Sri Lanka have faced each other a total of nine times in the ODI World Cups, with both teams having four wins under their belt, with one match ending with no result. 

Earlier, Sri Lanka was a force to be reckoned with, and they had some dominant performances against the Indian contingent. However, recently, India has been enjoying the upper hand against its island neighbours.

It remains to be seen how India fares against Sri Lanka in the 2023 World Cup. India is on an impressive unbeaten streak, having won its first six games straight.

Sri Lanka has performed well but will be competing against Pakistan, Australia, Netherlands and Afghanistan to make it into the playoffs. India’s sport in the semi-finals is all but guaranteed at this point.

The upcoming match will be crucial for both teams. It will be a do-or-die match for Sri Lanka and India will get the chance to improve its head-to-head record in World Cup.
