Pre-Match Updates for 1st ODI:- India’s Tour of Sri Lanka commences today i.e., the 18th of July. The first ODI match of the tour would be played today at 3 p.m. in Colombo, Sri Lanka. The players of both the teams have shattered their sweats with continuous practice sessions ahead of this match. India on one hand would be fighting a great challenge with their experienced players missing the squad for the Sri Lankan tour. Sri Lanka on the other hand has made major changes in its squad for the tour.
India, though missing their experienced players are ready to roar. The likes of IPL stars gives them the confidence to play their best and win matches for the team. The players in the squad have experience playing cricket with great cricketers from all over the world in IPL.
Which team seems to be stronger for the match? What can we expect from the first ODI of the series? Let us discuss this in this post.
The young Indian brigades are all set to break records in the tour. The experience of playing in IPL would definitely help the youngsters deliver their best and take the team to victory. As of now, India is the only team to play 2 teams simultaneously at the same time. This can give us the idea on how high the confidence is for the Indians.
We have head from sources that, there is a slight possibility of rain today at Colombo. However, it is expected that the clouds would get cleared before the start of the play today.
India in the last tour to Sri Lanka in 2018 have left the Lankans stunned, with a clean sweep in the series. But, it won’t be that easy this time as India would be playing with its new team in the absence of its head coach and other experienced players.
The ODI series is expected to be a thriller and so is what we can expect from the very first match.
