Sri Lanka beat India by 69 runs in a crucial Group B match at the World Cup at the Queen's Park Oval, Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.

Victory means that Sri Lanka to progress through to the Super 8 stage with 2 points, however India's loss means that they are out of the tournament if Bangladesh beats World-Cup debutants and currently winless Bermuda, who both India and Sri Lanka beat by over 200 runs. Ducks from Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Sachin Tendulkar, two of India's most touted batsmen prior to the World Cup, sealed the loss although Rahul Dravid and Virender Sehwag built a strong partnership during the middle overs.

Toss: India won, and elected to field first.
