Angelo Mathews believes Sri Lanka will lose none of their home advantage when they play New Zealand in India.
The co-hosts have played the majority of their World Cup matches in Colombo but will play the Black Caps in Mumbai on Friday.
Sri Lankan captain Kumar Sangakkara has expressed his displeasure at the prospect of playing a group match in a neighbouring country.
But Mathews claims the nature of the track and the conditions at the Gymkhana Ground are similar to those back home and does not anticipate any problems in their final Group A clash.
"It's not a big deal," the all-rounder told reporters. "The conditions are similar to those in Sri Lanka and the wickets are also slow. We have also played in India often."
Both Sri Lanka and New Zealand are through to the quarter-finals from the group but Mathews is looking to contribute with the ball to replicate Tillakaratne Dilshan and Lasith Malinga's figures.
"I can play an important role when there's an opportunity," said the 23-year-old who went out for a golden duck when batting against Zimbabwe.
"I will be even happy to play a small role, taking a crucial wicket and score some quick runs and help the team to win."
