India vs Sri Lanka 2017 Match Prediction & Probable Playing 11

The first ODI will be held at Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium.

Last month, during the Test against Sri Lanka, Kohli's average crossed the 50-mark, thus making him the first batsman to boast a 50-up average in all three-formats of the game.

Indian opener Rohit Sharma, who has recently been appointed as the vice-captain of the limited-overs team, on Thursday said he is excited with the prospect of stepping onto the field in his new role when the national side head into the five-match ODI series, beginning August 20 in Dambulla.

Although the Sri Lanka series is a low-profile assignment, it will surely be a litmus test of India's young middle order.

Sri Lanka's primary target will be to win a minimum of two matches for a straight qualification for the 2019 World Cup.

India are scheduled to play a lone Twenty20 in Colombo on September 6 after the completion of the ODI series.

How frustrated is he playing the waiting game?

Sri Lanka have recalled Thisara Perera and Milinda Siriwardana to the squad while Malinda Pushpakumara and Vishwa Fernando are expected to make their ODI debuts. In the home series against New Zealand when he had scores of 17, 19, 28 n.o., 12 and zero, on three of those occasions he was sent in at five or below.

Angelo Mathews stepped aside as captain after that defeat, vacating the top job to Tharanga who takes the helm at a low point for Sri Lankan cricket, with a form slump and injuries dogging the beleaguered side.

Manish Pandey waited long for his turn to bat as the likes of Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandey and MS Dhoni swapped nets (spin, fast and throw-downs) between them.

The 30-year-old was part of the Indian side surprisingly beaten in the ICC Champions Trophy final by Pakistan at the Oval in mid-June.

Ashwin became the second fastest bowler to 200 wickets in Test history and won four successive man-of-the-series awards.
