IND vs SL Betting Tips

  • Virat Kohli hit 113 from 87 balls on Tuesday, his second successive ODI century, and we expect him to be India’s highest run scorer in this match. Mohammed Siraj took 2-30 and bowled a maiden in the opening game and he is well worth backing as India’s top wicket taker in the second ODI.
  • Opener Pathum Nissanka hit 72 runs from 80 balls in Guwahati and he is a strong choice for Sri Lanka’s highest run scorer in Kolkata. With the ball, Chamika Karunaratne has taken at least one wicket in all four matches on this tour so far. The pace bowler is our pick for Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker in this match.
  • When Virat Kohli is on form, there are very few other players who can bat with the same level of consistency. We recommend backing him to hit over 41.5 run in this game.

IND vs SL 2nd ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips

The second game of the ODI series between India and Sri Lanka takes place at Eden Gardens Kolkata on Thursday. India won the opening game by 67 runs in Guwahati. The hosts posted 373-7 before restricting Sri Lanka to 306-8 in reply. Read on as we preview the middle match of this series. This day-night match gets underway at 13:30 local time.

India have won their last two games by 227 runs (against Bangladesh) and 67 runs on Tuesday. The victory over Sri Lanka was never in doubt in Guwahati and we expect India to dominate them again in this match.

After conceding 303 runs before taking their fourth wicket in the opening match of the series, Sri Lanka were always on the back foot. It will take a huge turnaround with bat and ball if they are to win this ODI.

IND vs SL Match Toss Prediction

The last six ODIs at this venue have been won by the team batting first and, with humidity levels set to increase in the second half of the game, our prediction is that both captains will choose to bat first in this match.

IND vs SL, Eden Gardens Pitch Report

There is always pace in the wicket at Eden Gardens and we expect the quick bowlers to perform better than the spinners in this match. A par score will be around 360-370 in this ODI.

India Team News & Playing 11

IND Team News

In spite of his heroics with the bat in the IT20 series, India had no place for Suryakumar Yadav in their XI for the opening ODI. We expect him to be kept out of this game again and for Shubman Gill to continue at the top of the order in place of Ishan Kishan.

IND Key Players

  • Virat Kohli - It is now 45 ODI centuries for the former skipper and 73 international hundreds in total. He has hit exactly 113 in both of his last two games in this format.
  • Rohit Sharma - The skipper returned to international cricket with 83 on Tuesday. He will be looking for his third successive ODI half-century in this match.
  • Mohammed Siraj - The right arm pace bowler took two wickets in the first six overs of Sri Lanka’s innings. He has picked up at least one wicket in 14 of his 17 ODIs.

IND Team Form

India look to be back to their best in this format and, with the selectors picking their strongest possible ODI team, they are targeting their third successive win.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

22 year old left-arm medium fast bowler Dilshan Madushanka made his ODI debut in the opening game of the series and we expect him to be selected again after picking up the wicket of Rohit Sharma. No injuries have been reported after the game in Guwahati.

SL Key Players

  • Pathum Nissanka - The right-handed opener struck 11 fours against the India bowling attack on Tuesday and has now hit six scores over fifty from 21 ODIs.
  • Dasun Shanaka - The 31 year old skipper continued his very strong form against India in Guwahati with his second ODI century. He has 232 runs from four innings on this tour.
  • Chamika Karunaratne - The bowling all-rounder has proved capable of generating good pace across the IT20s and the first ODI. He will enjoy bowling on this wicket in Kolkata.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka have won one of their last five ODIs but did beat Australia, 2-1 at home, in the series before this run in June.

Who will win India vs Sri Lanka 2nd ODI Match?

Although Dasun Shanaka is in remarkable form for Sri Lanka, the batting unit for India is very strong. The host’s top three made scores of 83, 70 and 113 on Tuesday.

IND vs SL Top Team Batsmen

We are backing Rohit Shama, Virat Kohli and Shubman Gill with the bat for India. Sharma hit 12 boundaries in the opening ODI and he shares the top odds with Kohli ahead of this game. Gill is averaging 58.23 after 16 ODI innings.

Kusal Mendis, Pathum Nissanka and Dasun Shanaka are our batting choices for Sri Lanka. Mendis and Nissanka are joint favourites with the bookies to top score and both have made half-centuries against India on this tour. Shanaka hit 15 boundaries in the first ODI in Guwahati.

IND vs SL Top Team Bowlers

Mohammed Siraj, Mohammed Shami and Umran Malik are our bowling selections for India. Shami is vastly experienced across all formats and has 153 wickets in ODIs. Malik took 3-57 in the opening match of the series and has picked up 10 wickets from the four games of Sri Lanka’s tour.

Our bowling choices are Chamika Karunaratne, Kasun Rajitha and Wanindu Hasaranga for Sri Lanka. Rajitha conceded 88 runs in Guwahati but also picked up three key wickets. Hasaranga returned figures of 0-67 in the first match but he is a top performer and we expect him to show his class again in this match.

🏆 India vs Sri Lanka Prediction

Although Dasun Shanaka batted very impressively over the final stretch of Sri Lanka’s innings in the opening game, India’s victory was never in doubt. Across both batting and bowling, India were much the better side and particularly with the bat, India have a far superior record. With the likes of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma in top form, we are predicting another win for India.

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.
