SL vs IND Dream11 team 1st T20I: who will win today match prediction?


SL vs IND dream11 today match prediction: India don’t have much T20I games before the WT20 later this year and they need to make use of what little games they are left with before the world cup. Indian bowling proved to be a mess in the 3rd game and it was an expected one as they lacked experience big time. The wicket aided spin but Indian spinners were poor and bowled without any control whatsoever which helped Sri Lanka to get crucial 10 points.

Sri Lanka can make a decent T20I side as they have good prospects and the likes of Chamika Karunaratne and Bhanuka Rajapaksa have showed massive potential already. It will be an excellent T20I series and the ODI series was a really close one than many expected it to be. Sri Lanka were close to win the 50 overs format as well if not for Deepak Chahar’s batting exploits towards the end in the 2nd ODI.

India’s experienced bowler in Bhuvneshwar Kumar need to standup badly and kead the pace attack as he was not seen at his best in the ODIs. India’s vulnerable bowling attack will be under the scanner again and Yuzvendra Chahal was above average in the ODIs though he picked up wickets at regular intervals.

SL vs IND dream11 team

In dream11 prediction, lets bring out the strengths and weaknesses of both the sides.

  • Surya Kumar Yadav was in majestic form but he didn’t make full use of his dream form in the ODIs. He got starts consistently but couldn’t convert it Into a substantial score.
  • Prithvi Shaw would hold the key for India one more time at the top of the order along with Shikhar Dhawan. The Delhi Capitals pair will need to provide good base as the middle was looks susceptible against spin barring Surykaumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan to some extent.
  • Isuru Udana will slot back in his most preferred format and his experience will be handy for them.
