SL vs IND: India Tour of Sri Lanka: Preview
Shikhar Dhawan impressed everyone on his first day of captaincy by playing a good knock as an opener & scoring 86 on 95 balls. Birthday boy Ishan Kishan slammed brilliant half-century & helped India to score a win against Sri Lanka. Youngster, Prithvi Shaw, also showed a glimpse of his talent by providing a much needed strong opening partnership with Dhawan.
The pitch was expected to be slow but Sri Lanka gave a tough fight by scoring 262. If compared to the other ODI scores, scored against India, the number looks less but since the pitch was not at all betting friendly, the score looked big. However, India’s betting line up was strong & motivated to perform.

As seen in the first, it was expected to be a betting friendly pitch, but turns that the pitch is helpful for pacers to take some wickets & for spinners to slow down the run rate. Bowling line up from both teams will have an extra edge but all the batsman will have to push some extra mile to reach a bigger score.
