IND vs SL Preview

  • Over India’s last nine games, Shreyas Iyer has averaged 71.50. He has a strike rate of 94.70 and 429 runs scored.
  • In Sri Lanka’s last five ODIs, Wanindu Hasaranga de Silva has claimed 10 wickets. His GDP is 5.27.
  • In their last 5 meetings, India has outscored Pakistan 4-1 in their head-to-head matchup.


India and Sri Lanka will play their first of a three-match ODI series in Guwahati on Tuesday after a closely contested IT20 series that went 2-1 in favor of the hosts. India defeated Bangladesh in their most recent ODI, winning by 227 runs. In their final game using this style, Sri Lanka defeated Afghanistan by four wickets at the end of November. The first game in the series begins at 13:30 local time. 

After giving fringe and young players opportunities in this format throughout 2022, India has chosen a very good team. Before this game, the squad has quality and depth at every position.

Sri Lanka will compete at a much higher level in this game and choose many of the same players from Saturday’s final Twenty20 match. Regardless of the competition, they play cricket with a fearless approach.

IND vs SL Weather Report, Toss Prediction And Pitch Report

On the day of the game, there will be no precipitation and a 10% to 20% probability of it. The temperature range from the maximum to minimum will be 26°C to 13°C.

There has only been one ODI game played on this field thus far. In the match, India outran the West Indies by pursuing a target. The winning captain typically opts to bowl first in this situation because the pitch favors batters in the second inning.

In this high-scoring game, the pitch has given batters additional benefits.

India Team News & Probable Playing XIs

We anticipate that the hosts will begin regularly selecting their best side as the ODI World Cup, which will be held in India in the last quarter of 2023, approaches. The fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah was supposed to play in this match after missing the T20 World Cup due to injury, however, he has since withdrawn.
