ICC U-19 World Cup 2016: We know what to expect from Sri Lanka, says Rahul Dravid

New Delhi: Ahead of the semi-final clash against Sri Lanka in the ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup on Tuesday, Indian coach Rahul Dravid looked a bit cautious as he said, the opposition has a lot of good spinners.

"We know what to expect from them. They have a couple of seamers and a lot of good spinners. They bowl a lot of spin. Having said that, they also know what to expect from us," Dravid told PTI.

Dravid expects it to be a good contest between the two sub-continent teams and wants the Indian lads to bring out their A game.

"It should be a good contest. We have been playing very good cricket of late and the lead-up to the tournament was good. We need to play well, irrespective of whether we bat or bowl first. If we play good cricket and bring our A game to the party, we will give ourselves a good chance to win.," added Dravid.

Thus far, Team India has performed outstandingly well in the tourney as they breezed through Group D with an all-win record against New Zealand, Nepal and Ireland, before crushing Namibia by 197 runs in the quarter-final.

On the other end, Sri Lanka bounced back after a 23-run defeat to Pakistan in the last Group B match to stun a strong England side by six wickets in the quarter-final.

However, going into the match, India are certainly the favourites to win the game, which is scheduled to be played at Shere Bangla National Stadium, Mirpur.
