Wicket-keeper batsmen Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav were given caps before the toss.

One match ended in a tie and 11 matches ended with no result. Both the teams have played 61 ODIs on Sri Lankan soil and India won 28 matches. At the same time, the Sri Lankan team won 27 matches. One match tie and 6 matches were inconclusive. A total of 18 bilateral series have been played between the two countries, out of which the Indian team won 13 series. Sri Lanka last captured an ODI series against India in 1997.
Under the leadership of Shikhar Dhawan, the team has come out to play for the first time. On the other hand, former India batsman Rahul Dravid has come on a tour of Sri Lanka as a coach. There are six players in the Indian team who have not played international matches before but Dravid has made it clear that it will be difficult to give everyone a chance in this tour. By the way, most of the Indian players have been playing regularly in T20. The T20 World Cup is to be held at the end of the year and in such a situation every player will try to strengthen his claim. Dhawan himself is not sure of a place in the squad for the World Cup to be held in UAE as there are many contenders to open the innings in the team.
