IND Vs SL Dream 11 Fantasy Team Predictions

Sri Lanka Tour of India, 2017

After being put to bat on pitch conditions specially tailored for seam bowlers, India bundled out for 112. And, all the credit goes to the spectacular spell of Suranga Lakmal. At one point the hosts were 29-7, which could have been India’s lowest total in ODI history but when every other batsman failed to score even in the double-digit, India did manage to cross the 100 mark with a beautiful batting show put up by none other than Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Dhoni has always been a thorn for Sri Lanka. He has a stunning test average of 49 and ODI average of 66 against Sri Lanka.

Now, as the win helped Sri Lanka in ending their 12 games consecutive loss streak, it will be interesting to watch if they will get success in continuing their winning momentum or India makes a comeback. After facing a nightmarish loss in his ODI debut as a skipper, Rohit would like to make a strong comeback and nullify the lead of 0-1 Sri Lanka has achieved in three ODI matches series.

Overall, it will be an interesting battle to watch. After the massive loss in the first game, visitors can’t be taken lightly.
