India vs Sri Lanka 

1st ODI Match Prediction & Tips 

Time: 10 Jan, 01:30 PM (IST)
Series: 1st ODI Match
Venue: Barsapara Cricket Stadium – Guwahati, India    

IND vs SL Dream11 Prediction:

  • 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, Jasprit Bumrah has 121 ODI wickets from 72 innings and the quick bowler 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.
