Sri Lanka will be squaring up against India in the 2nd match of the ODI series at R. Premadasa stadium in Colombo. The match will commence on Sunday, July 19 at 03:00 PM IST. Here are SL vs IND Dream11 predictions, preview, squad, and predicted XI.
SL vs IND Dream11 Predictions: Preview
The Sri Lankan cricket team surprised everyone when they posted a score of 250+ batting first in the 1st ODI. Their cricket is in such a bad shape that even a mediocre total looked good. Lankan top-order batsmen all got starts but they failed to capitalise. They all got out to soft dismissals. The Lankan batsmen were in two minds to either go on an all-out attack or to play conservatively. Their bowling which was supposed to be their stronger suit hardly threatened the Indian batsmen. They have to regroup quickly ahead of the 2nd ODI if they have to challenge this Indian team. It is looking difficult at the moment for Sri Lanka.
The Indian team put on quite a show in the 1st ODI against Sri Lanka. They were all over the Lankan team in the run-chase especially. Indian spinners spun a web around the Lankans. Krunal Pandya who is India’s 6th bowling option at best returned with the most economical figures (1-26 in 10 overs). If not for the first 10 and last five 5 overs of Lanka’s batting, it was a supremely dominant performance. Prithvi Shaw started the run-chase in a stellar fashion. He was belligerent in his response. India raced off to 50 within the first 5 overs. Ishan Kishan who made his ODI debut went one better and registered a half-century.
India’s new attacking approach:
The game was as good as over in the 15 overs of the run-chase. Post Kishan departed, the old workhorses combined forces to take India home. Suryakumar Yadav who was also making his debut provided the finishing touches. India especially its batting department looks in rampant form. They have committed to a certain mode of play despite the outcome. It is highly refreshing to see this young generational batting talent dominate international attacks in this manner. The strategy surely is risk-prone but is insanely rewarding too. They will be keen to bat first in the 2nd ODI and try to test themselves if they have it in them to post an imposing total. We certainly can’t wait!
