IND vs. SL, 1st ODI: Top 3 Dream matchups to watch – The Indian team Shihar Dhavan is ready to play three games of the ODI series against Sri Lanka starting on July 18th. The first match will be played at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo and the teams will not actually throw any stones. Although many star players have been lost on both sides, there are players like Dhawan, Pritwi Shaw, Dasun Shanaka, Dhananjaya De Silva, Hardik Pandya, Dushmanta Chamera and Devdutt Padikkal who could have set the scene in the first ODI.
We at Insidesport will guide you through three match-fixing matches to keep an eye out for the first ODI between Sri Lanka and India.
IND vs. SL: Shihar Dhavan vs. Dushmanta Chamera
Shihar Dhawan will lead the Indian team for the first time and will be the team’s biggest player. In the IPL 2021, he was the best scorer and is in top form. He will face off against the Sri Lankan Chamber of Commerce. He was the top wicket-takaker in the T20Is against England. He managed 6 wickets in 3 T20I. Right-hand pass can be a big risk for Dhawan in the first few overs.
IND vs. SL: Dasun Shanaka vs. Hardik Pandya
Newly formed Sri Lankan skipper Dasun Shanaka will be the expected leader from the front. The right-hand man is in good form as he was the second-highest scorer in the ODI against England. Bowling is useful at medium speeds against the inexperienced orders of the Indian team. India, on the other hand, will be focused on countering the Dasun threat with Hardik Pandya. The Indian team wants Hardik to open fire on his trip to Sri Lanka as this will solve many problems for them. However, his last form in the IPL was below the level. If Hardick wants to secure his place in the T20 WC squad, then he should be considered this series.
IND vs. SL: Devdutt Padikkal vs. Aquila Dhananjaya
Royal Challengers player Bangalore Devdutt Padical is expected to continue his golden round in the IPL to international cricket. He has to start India at the top and consider his chances as it won’t be much. However, he must resist the threat of Akila Dhananjaya. Wisdom has the ability to cup right and Legbreak. In the past, he has bothered many left-wing fighters and now it will be interesting to see how he fights against the Paddle.
