Betting tips, predictions, outright winner odds and more on England tour of India 2021, starting from Jul 18, 2021 till Jul 29, 2021.

India Tour of Sri Lanka 2021

Indian team is visiting Sri Lanka for three ODI's and three T20's commencing from Jul 18, 2021, at the R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo. all the matches will be played on the same ground and the tour will be completed after the three T20's on Jul 29, 2021.

India won their last international series against England 2-1 whereas Sri Lanka has been coming with some morale losing defeats at the hands of same opponents away from their home. India has given the chance to youngsters in the absence of key players who will play there under the captainship of Shikhar Dhawan and the able guidance of the coach Rahul Dravid.

Sri Lanka vs India ODI series

Sri Lanka had a disastrous tour of England where they lost all the matches except the last ODI where they were saved by rain after being bowled out for paltry 166 after being put to bat first. Their batting could not click once and hence they lost all their matches. There were some individual performances which were some positives for them. Sri Lanka will have to regroup sooner or later to find the right balance for their team.

India is playing their second side for this tour as all the main players are on the England Tour. The team is being captained by swashbuckling left-handed opening batsman Shikhar Dhawan and Bhuvnehwar Kumar will be his deputy for the tour. This is the best chance for youngsters to showcase their mettle at the highest level and one or two players can also make a cut for the T20 World Cup later this year on the basis of their performance.

Sri Lanka vs India Key Players

  • Shikhar Dhawan (India)

    The captain was in the red hot form in the last short format international series vs England where he scored 169 runs in three ODI's at an impressive average of 56.33. He will need to play an anchor role and guide the youngsters at the other end on how to build the innings.

  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar (India) 

    One of the best swing bowlers in the country, he is the most experienced bowler in the current tour of Sri Lanka. He will lead the pace attack and can be difficult to score off in powerplay and death overs. 

  • Hardik Pandya (India) 

    The star all-rounder will make a comeback in the Indian team after being laid off due to a back injury. His power hitting at the death overs can be decisive as he can get you the cushion of extra 30-40 runs. If he is able to ball then it will be great for the team balance and the team can play one extra batsman.

Betting odds

Sri Lanka vs India ODI Series Betting odds

India is big favourites to win despite some of the main players not being available.


Expert Prediction

Sri Lanka vs India ODI Series Prediction

Sri Lanka is playing at their home but they are not looking commendable enough to get the job done and win the series. We are backing India to win the ODI series as some of their players such as Prithvi Shaw and Devdutt Padikal were in tremendous form in the domestic tournaments and also carried that form at the big stage in IPL  2021. Sanju Samson was also in good touch and in the bowling, Chetan Sarkariya had a dream outing which was enough to get a maiden international call for the Indian Team.

Therefore India is outright favorites to win the ODI Series 

Final Verdict

Back India to win the ODI series 3-0
