Hello and welcome to Sportstar's LIVE updates and hourly weather predictions from Leeds, where India and Sri Lanka will lock horns in a Cricket World Cup 2019 match at Headingley.

K.C. Vijaya Kumar pings from Leeds: It rained a weebit at dawn, a bit cloudy but should clear

Where they stand| India needs to beat Sri Lanka and hope Australia loses to South Africa if it wants to avoid playing England in the semifinal. However, if Australia beats South Africa today then regardless of the outcome in the India vs Sri Lanka match, India will play England and Australia will take on New Zealand in the last-four.

This has been quite a world cup weather wise, hasn't it? Starting with incessant rains, across venues, playing spoilsport to experiencing near heat wave like conditions, the flippant English weather — much like the topsy turvy business end of World Cup 2019 — has caught many by surprise.

NOTE: The World Cup did not have reserve days for the group stage. However, the semis and final are covered.

The next week will see India, England, Australia and New Zealand battle it out in the semifinals before two teams have a crack at the silverware at Lord's in London on July 14. The weather forecast for next week, however, is a bit dicey with spells of heavy showers in the offing. Here's what the Met Department has to say: "It will be a slightly more unsettled period than of late, with outbreaks of rain or showers, possibly heavy at times. Probably becoming a little fresher and more settled into the weekend, with the showers becoming less widespread from the west."

According to the British Met Department : Any early rain and cloud will clear by mid morning, leaving some lengthy sunny spells with just fair weather cloud. Winds becoming light, and feeling pleasant in the sunshine. Maximum temperature 22 °C.
