SL vs IND 1st ODI Match Preview:
On the 18th of Jul, Sri Lanka will face India in the 1st ODI Match at R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo, Sri Lanka. Both teams don’t have their full-strength squads due to various reasons.
The young and enthusiastic brigade of India, led by the experienced Shikhar Dhawan will be locking horns against the Lankans in the 3-match ODI and 3-match T20I series as a part of their tour to Sri Lanka. R Premadasa Stadium will host all the games between these two sides on this tour.
Some of the emerging players of the domestic circuit have been called into the side and they would be eyeing to make an impact and cement their places in the side. Both the teams lack big names.
