The 1st ODI match of the 3-match ODI series will be played between India and Sri Lanka on Tuesday, 10 January at 01:30 PM IST Live from Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati. Earlier in the 3-match T20I series where the Men in Blue defeated Sri Lanka by 2-1 to win the T20I series against the Lankan Lions.

It is expected that in the first match of the ODI series to be played against Sri Lanka, Team India will be captained by Rohit Sharma, will register a win and take an edge in the series. On the other hand, if we talk about the T20 series, then the visiting team Sri Lanka gave a tough fight to India. Team India will not take Sri Lanka lightly in the ODI series.

For this ODI series, the Indian team includes big names like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Jasprit Bumrah. However, in the meantime, Shreyas Iyer will be the dependent player in this ODI series. Iyer is in the red hot of his career. Shreyas scored 724 runs in 15 innings in ODIs last year. The right-handed batter also scored 1 century and 6 half-centuries.

The left-handed wicketkeeper-batter Ishaan Kishan can open with captain Rohit Sharma in the first ODI against Sri Lanka. Ishan scored a double-century in his last ODI against Bangladesh. Shubman Gill may have to sit on the bench in the first match of this series.

Former captain Virat Kohli is sure to play at number three. At the same time, Suryakumar Yadav can play at number four, KL Rahul at number five and Hardik Pandya at number six. After this Yuzvendra Chahal and Axar Patel can play the role of the spinner.

Talking about fast bowlers, Team India can go with three fast bowlers in the first ODI to be held in Guwahati. The likes of Mohammad Siraj, Jasprit Bumrah and Umran Malik will be taking the responsibilities of seam bowling.

Pathum Nissanka from the Sri Lankan team scored the most runs last year, but he could not perform much in the recent T20 series. Kusal Mendis, captain Dasun Shanaka, and Wanindu Hasaranga can rely upon the most in this series. Lankan captain Shanaka is in excellent form. In the T20 series, he scored 124 runs in 3 matches at an average of 62 and he can also bowl for his side if needed.

Both sides last played an ODI match in July 2021, when a second-string Indian side toured the Lankan Lions under Dhawan’s captaincy. India won the series 2-1 as the Sri Lankan team spared themselves from a series whitewash by winning the third ODI. India has won 8 out of their last ten fixtures against Sri Lanka and will be looking to continue their domination.
