Sri Lanka will take on India in the 2nd ODI on Tuesday. The Lankans put up a decent show by scoring 262 runs, but it was not nearly enough to trouble the Indians. A lot of inexperience was seen in their approach, both while batting and bowling. Defeat in the 1st ODI will make them rethink their strategies, and they must win this match to stay alive in the series.
Fearless batting from youngsters Prithvi Shaw and Ishan Kishan, and a responsible captain’s innings from Shikhar Dhawan helped India to register a 7-wicket victory in the first ODI with 80 balls still left in the game. All the players in the eleven showed a lot of intent in their respective departments.

Top Picks for SL vs IND Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – Batsmen
Avishka Fernando played the Indian bowlers really well in the 1st ODI and scored a decent 33 runs from 35 balls, which included 2 fours and a six.
Prithvi Shaw hit some stunning shots early on in the innings, in the 1st ODI. He was piercing the ball in the gap really well. Shaw was the player of the match for his quickfire 43 runs from 24 balls.
Top Picks – All-Rounders
Dhananjaya de Silva is a technically sound batter and looks composed at the crease. He is also a handy customer with the ball. In the 1st ODI, he scored 14 runs with the bat and picked up 2 wickets.
Hardik Pandya didn’t get the opportunity to bat in the 1st ODI. He bowled 5 overs in the 1st ODI and used his variations quite effectively. Pandya is the player to watch out for in the 2nd ODI.
Top Picks – Bowlers
Kuldeep Yadav didn’t complete his full quota of overs, but picked up the important wickets of well-settled Minod Bhanuka and Bhanuka Rajapaksa.
Dushmantha Chameera was unlucky not pick to any wickets in the 1st ODI. He troubled the Indian batters and bowled at a good pace as well. Chameera is expected to do well in the 2nd ODI.
Top Picks – Wicketkeepers
Ishan Kishan got himself a perfect birthday present on his ODI debut. He arrived into ODIs in a grand fashion by hitting a first-ball six over long-on. After bringing up his maiden ODI half-century, he ended his innings on 59.

SL vs IND Risky Captaincy Choices:
Wanindu Hasaranga had an off day in the 1st ODI, where he was dismissed for just 8 runs and went wicketless. He is a talented all-rounder and can be a risky captaincy pick.
Ishan Kishan is a player who likes to be fearless from the ball one. He is a risky captaincy pick for your fantasy teams.
Player you should avoid:
Isuru Udana was all over the place in the 1st ODI, as he was not able to control his swing. Considering his recent form, it’s better to avoid him while making your Dream11 fantasy teams.
