IND vs SL Today Dream11 Team & Cricket Betting Tips, Who will win 1st T20I India vs Sri Lanka?


IND vs SL Prediction: With a white-wash win over the West Indies in the recently concluded 3-match T20Is, India would be taking on Sri Lanka for 3 T20Is and 2 Tests, with the T20Is set to commence from February 24, and the first match being played in Lucknow. The Rohit Sharma-led side suffered a few major blows ahead of the first outing, with in-form Suryakumar Yadav being ruled out of the series owing to a hairline fracture and powerplay bowler Deepak Chahar suffering a hamstring injury. With the duo being ruled out for the entire series, and the likes of Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant being rested for the T20Is, India can’t make the mistake of undermining the opposition. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka have recently suffered a 4-1 bashing at the hands of Australia in the T20Is. While the visitors too would be missing out on some of their vital cogs, they would still be optimistic to start the series on a positive note.
