India vs Sri Lanka 1st ODI Live Streaming
India will be taking on Sri Lanka in the 1st ODI of the 5-match series between the two teams on the 20th of August. Both the teams look geared up for the ODIs despite the Test series looking quite one-sided. Let’s see how it turns out in the ODIs.
India will mainly be relying on its batting as always. Shikhar Dhawan looked in supreme touch in the ODIs and will be looking forward to continue with that same form in ODIs as well. Besides, they’ll give huge responsibility to Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli with the bat. Indian batting lineup is not deprived of hard hitters either with Kedar Jadhav and Hardik Pandya available in the middle order.
In the bowling department, India’s reliance will be on the spinners with the likes of Yuzvendra Chahal and Axar Patel. Remember India are playing without Ravi Jadeja and R Ashwin and these two will have to do a full time job. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah are there to take care of the pace bowling attack.
Sri Lanka Strengths
Sri Lanka find their real strength in the batting department in their top 4. Dickwella, Gunathilaka, Mendis and Tharanga all seem to be in great touch and will have to take most of the responsibility to make sure they have something big enough on the board whether they bat or bowl first. And if the top 4 come good for Sri Lanka, they have enough firepower in Mathews, Kapugedera, Perera and de Silva that they can take the attack on the Indians.
As for their bowling, they will rely on Lasith Malinga one more time in the pace bowling department. Youngster, Vishwa Fernando is also expected to take the first ODI cap in the all-important series opener. And, when it comes to spin bowling, they have Lakshan Sandakan and Wanindu Hasaranga to rely on.
