For the first time, India is going to play a series in two countries with two different teams in different formats. On one hand, the Indian Test team, led by Virat Kohli and coach Ravi Shastri, is gearing up for the Test series in England. On the other hand, the youth limited overs cricket team led by captain Shikhar Dhawan and coach Rahul Dravid will start the ODI series in Sri Lanka from today. Today (IND vs SL 1st ODI) between India and Sri Lanka, the first match of the ODI series will be played at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. There are many young players in both the teams, so before the upcoming T20 World Cup, young players will be eager to make their mark in both the ODI and T20 series.
The command of the Indian cricket team has been handed over to Shikhar Dhawan for the first time while Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be the vice-captain of the team. There are not one or two players in the Indian team who are desperate to taste international cricket for the first time. Without all the legendary players like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Jasprit Bumrah, all the fans will have high hopes from the Indian ODI team. Some have termed them as a second-rate Indian team but the world knows that there are many top players in this team and they will come to show their full strength against Sri Lanka. The command of the Sri Lankan team is in the hands of Dasun Shanaka in this series.

When Team India and Sri Lankan team will face each other in the first match of the ODI series on Sunday, it will be wrong to take anyone lightly. Especially the Indian cricket team cannot take any risk. The Sri Lankan team is going through a bad phase, they don’t have much to lose and the match is also being held on their ground, so they will also give full strength to India. Especially on the pitch in Colombo, which they will try to take full advantage of. The pitch of this ground is considered to create opportunities for the batsmen, but that does not mean that there is nothing here for the bowlers. Amidst the rain of runs, the spinners will definitely get to see the power in the middle overs while the fast bowlers can be seen showing their power in the second part of the match. The average first innings score at this ground is 305 runs. In the last five matches, the team batting first has won four times. Here are the scores and results of the last five ODIs.
1. Sri Lanka beat South Africa (2018) – Score 299/8 and 121
2. Sri Lanka beat England (2018) – Score 366/6 and 132/9
3. Sri Lanka beat Bangladesh (2019) – scores 314/8 and 223
4. Sri Lanka beat Bangladesh (2019) – scores 238/8 and 242/3
5. Sri Lanka beat Bangladesh (2019) – scores 294/8 and 172
How will the weather be in Colombo (July 18, Sunday)
There is a match in Sri Lanka and there is no possibility of rain, how can this happen. Rain is expected during these days of the year. On Sunday, when the teams of India and Sri Lanka will come here to play the first ODI, then this match is also expected to be under the shadow of rain. The weather will be hot and the humidity will also remain up to 84 percent. If the clouds give the players a chance to get on the field, then sweat is sure to happen even in less effort. On Sunday, the maximum temperature in Colombo is expected to remain up to 29 degree centigrade while the minimum temperature will also remain up to 27 degree centigrade. In such a situation, it seems impossible to get rid of the heat. There is every chance of rain, it just has to be seen whether a little time of the match is affected by rain or else the whole match will be lost to it.
