SL vs IND Dream11 Prediction 1st ODI Sri Lanka vs India, Fantasy Cricket Tips, Stats, Pitch Report 18 July


SL vs IND Dream11 Prediction: The first ODI match between Sri Lanka and India is scheduled to start on 18 July at the R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. Both the teams have named pretty inexperienced squads for this three-match limited-overs series. The host Sri Lankan team suffered a humiliating 0-3 series whitewash during their last ODI assignment in England and also lost the ODI series against Bangladesh. On the other hand, India defeated England at home earlier this year but the visitors will be without their mainstay cricketers like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah. However, it will be a great opportunity for both these teams to start this ODI series on a winning note.

Pitch Report

The wicket at the R.Premadasa Stadium will have enough assistance both for the batters and bowlers. There will be decent amount of help for the spinners and the surface is expected to slow down as the match progresses. However, batting first will be the perfect option on this track.
