India vs Sri Lanka Match Details

Match: India vs Sri Lanka, 2nd ODI | Sri Lanka tour of India 

Date: Thursday, 12 Jan 2023 

Time: 13:00 (GMT+5) / 13:30 (GMT+5.5) / 14:00 (GMT+6)

Format: ODI

Venue: Eden Gardens, Kolkata  

India vs Sri Lanka Preview

  • The Indian squad has won nine of the previous 10 home matches against Sri Lanka.
  • Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Shubman Gill, India’s top three, scored 266 runs in the most recent match.
  • Sri Lanka has struggled away from home, winning just once in its last ten games.


On Thursday, India and Sri Lanka play the second match of their ODI series at Eden Gardens in Kolkata. In Guwahati, India won the first game by a score of 67 runs. After scoring 373 points, the hosts held Sri Lanka to 306 points in response. The start of this day-night game is scheduled for 13:30 local time. 

India defeated Bangladesh by 227 runs in their most recent match, and they defeated Tuesday’s opponent by 67 runs. In Guwahati, India’s triumph over Sri Lanka was never in doubt, and we anticipate that they will beat them once more there.

Sri Lanka was perpetually in trouble after giving up 303 runs in the first game of the series before taking their fourth wicket. If they are to win this ODI, they will need a significant improvement with both bat and ball.

India vs Sri Lanka Weather Report, Toss Prediction And Pitch Report

On January 12, Kolkata would experience a clear sky.

In the evening, there will likely be dew, which may make bowling challenging if the ball gets wet. There have been large run chases here in the past, and it is a good surface. The team that wins the toss will attempt to bowl first and steer clear of using damp balls.

The bowlers will have some help in the opening innings. However, we anticipate that the pitch will be level and conducive to batting, allowing batters to use their strokes. 350 runs are what the team batting first would like to have on the board.

India Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Despite Suryakumar Yadav’s valiant efforts with the bat in the IT20 series, India did not include him in their starting lineup for the opening ODI. We anticipate Shubman Gill to replace Ishan Kishan at the top of the order and that he will once again be kept out of this game.

India’s Probable XI

Rohit Sharma (c), KL Rahul (wk), Virat Kohli, Shubman Gill, Hardik Pandya, Shreyas Iyer, Mohammed Shami, Axar Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Siraj, Umran Malik  

Sri Lanka News & Probable Playing XIs

Dilshan Madushanka, a 22-year-old left-arm medium-fast bowler, made his ODI debut in the first game of the series, and we anticipate that after getting rid of Rohit Sharma, he would be chosen once more. Following the game in Guwahati, there have been no injuries reported.

Both in terms of batting and bowling, India was by much the better team, and they have a much better track record when using the bat. We anticipate another victory for India because of players like Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma who are in excellent condition.
