India VS Srilanka Live Score
Will India level the account against Srilanka?
India had a disappointment start to the tour. But they have managed to score two points against Bangladesh, Who won against India. now nothing can differentiate amongst three teams apart from apart from run rate. As India better than the other two in run rate column, Their final berth will be almost confirmed if they win this match.
India cannot be complacent against Sri Lanka, Who lost narrowly against Bangladesh. Their batsmen seems to know only one gear. They are going after ball irrespective of its merit. India has be wary against kusal Mendis and Kusal Perrera. They are the ones who has done bulk of the damage. Dinesh Chandimal was banned for two games because Srilanka has bowled four over’s less in stipulated time. They took additional twenty minutes to score remaining four over’s. On top of his ban, all the Lankan players are fined 60 % of their match fee. Thisera Perrera might don the captaincy in Chandimal’s absence. Srilanka bat very deep as Upul Tharanga comes at number 5.Dasun Shanka who comes at no 6, also can hit long ball. Kusal Perrera scored a fifty when both teams last played against each other.
Indian supporters will be hoping Rohit Sharma to come in to terms. He is still in bad form. His opening partner Shikhar Dhawan in sublime form. Middle order onus will be on Suresh Raina and Manish Pandey. Rishabh Pant might get another game even he failed in two games. KL Rahul replacing Dinesh Karthik wouldn’t be a surprise. Both Spinner might retain the place as they have performed well against Bangladesh. Pace department might also be unchanged.
India to win.
Shikhar Dhawan to score fifty.
