Latter of which was played under ODI rules. They really fail to play their bowlers well during the middle overs. Their fielding was also poor in the last match and they have a long list of improvements they need to make to have any chance against the Indian behemoths.
  • India however have been dominating to say the least. They have a really strong top order with the likes of Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan and Ishan Kishan. In recent matches they have beaten the likes of England in ODI matches. Their bowlers are top class as well. With the likes of Chahal, Deepak Chahar and Kuldeep Yadav getting 2 wickets each in their previous match. They are a clear favourite going into this match.

Team News

  • Sri Lanka’s Dushmantha Chameera capped off a great performance in their last match. Although he did not take any wickets, he made the Indian batsmen very uncomfortable.
