IND vs SL Betting Tips

  • Virat Kohli has hit 44 centuries in this format and the top order batter is well worth backing as India's highest run scorer in Guwahati. With the ball, spinner Yuzvendra Chahal took 3-43 from his 10 overs in the last ODI match at this venue. He is a strong choice for India’s top wicket taker against Sri Lanka.
  • Kusal Mendis has a top score of 119 in this format and the keeper-batter is our tip for Sri Lanka’s highest run scorer against India in this match. Wanindu Hasaranga has best figures of 4-58 in ODIs and the spinner is our pick for Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker in this ODI.
  • On a pitch likely to be good for batting, we recommend backing Virat Kohli to score over 46.5 runs in this clash.

IND vs SL 1st ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips

After a closely fought IT20 series ended 2-1 to the hosts, India and Sri Lanka begin their three-match ODI series in Guwahati on Tuesday afternoon. India won their last ODI by 227 runs against Bangladesh in December. Sri Lanka beat Afghanistan by four wickets at the end of November in their last match in this format. Read on as we preview this game. This opening match of the series gets underway at 13:30 local time.

India have selected a very strong squad after giving fringe and young players opportunities in this format during 2022. There is quality and depth for every position in the squad ahead of this game.

Sri Lanka will select many of the same players from Saturday’s final IT20 and they will need to play at a far higher level in this game. However, they play their cricket with a fearless attitude irrespective of the opposition.

IND vs SL Match Toss Prediction

This is only the second ODI at this venue - India won the first by a comfortable margin after fielding first. We predict that both teams will choose to field first.

There will be turn for the spinners but we expect a quick surface in Guwahati. A par score will be a minimum of 300 runs on this pitch.

India Team News & Playing 11

IND Team News

With the ODI World Cup coming up in India in the final quarter of 2023, we expect to see the hosts start to pick their best team on a regular basis. Pace bowler Jasprit Bumrah, who missed the T20 World Cup with injury, was expected to return for this game but has since been withdrawn.

IND Key Players

  • Virat Kohli - The former India skipper averages 57.47 in this format. He hit 113, his first century in ODIs since 2019, in the final game against Bangladesh last year.
  • Suryakumar Yadav - The batting star of IT20 cricket during 2022 and the final game of the series on Saturday, is yet to show his quality in this format. This is a big game for the top order batter.
  • Yuzvendra Chahal - The leg-spinner has 118 ODI wickets with best figures of 6-42. He will get turn and bounce on this surface.

IND Team Form

After five games without a win in this format, India thrashed Bangladesh in their last ODI.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

After a period of poor results, disappointing performances and inconsistent selections, Sri Lanka have vastly improved across all formats under the coaching of Chris Silverwood. The visitors have a full squad to select from ahead of this ODI.

SL Key Players

  • Kusal Mendis - The keeper-batter batted impressively at the top of the order in the IT20 series. He hit 67 runs from 61 balls in his last ODI.
  • Dasun Shanaka - The captain has hit one century and three fifties in this format. He was the standout batter for Sri Lanka in the IT20 series.
  • Wanindu Hasaranga - The bowling all-rounder took two wickets in his last game in this format and took a wicket in each of the IT20s last week.

SL Team Form

After going winless from their previous three ODIs, Sri Lanka beat Afghanistan by four wickets in their last match. They have won two of their last five in this format.

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing 11

Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis (wk), Nuwanidu Fernando, Dhananjaya de Silva, Charith Asalanka, Dasun Shanaka (c), Ashen Bandara, Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Maheesh Theekshana, Kasun Rajitha

Who will win India vs Sri Lanka 1st ODI Match?

The return of India’s experienced batters gives their batting line-up a very strong look. Sri Lanka have good bowlers but we think they will struggle against the free scoring Indian players.

IND vs SL Top Team Batsmen

Ishan Kishan, Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer are our batting tips for India. Kishan is level favourite with Kohli and hit 210 in his last ODI. With 1537 runs from 35 ODIs, Shreyas Iyer averages 48.03 in this format and will enjoy batting on this pitch.

We recommend Kusal Mendis, Pathum Nissanka and Charith Asalanka with the bat for Sri Lanka. Mendis and Nissanka are joint favourites to top score for their side and have performed well as an opening pair in white ball cricket. Asalanka has a top score of 110 in ODIs.

IND vs SL Top Team Bowlers

We are backing Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Siraj and Arshdeep Singh for India with the ball. Siraj has 24 wickets from 16 ODIs and is always an attacking threat in any format. Singh is yet to pick up an ODI wicket but has all the skills to be a success.

Wanindu Hasaranga, Maheesh Theekshana and Kasun Rajitha are our bowling picks for Sri Lanka. Hasaranga is the leader of their attack irrespective of the format and he will get turn from this pitch. Rajitha has picked up wickets in five of his last six matches.

🏆 India vs Sri Lanka Prediction

After a competitive IT20 series, there is plenty of excitement ahead of this game. Sri Lanka have a good squad to pick from and they will be looking to build early momentum ahead of the World Cup later this year. However, India’s batting line-up is one of the best in the world and we are predicting a victory for them in this opening match.
