IND vs SL Live: Avishka Fernando scored 32 runs before being dismissed by Yuzvendra Chahal.© AFP
Sri Lanka openers gave a good start after opting to bat first. They lost just a single wicket and after the first powerplay the score was at 55/1. Yuzvendra Chahal took Avishka Fernando’s wicket who was looking in good touch. India have three spinners in the playing XI- Kuldeep Yadav, Krunal Pandya and Yuzvendra Chahal. Both Kuldeep and Chahal are playing together in the Indian XI after a long time Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav are making their ODI debuts for India. Sri Lanka have also included one debutant in their squad- Bhanuka Rajapaksa. For the host, a team in trouble both on and off the field, this series is a welcome opportunity to put their England failures behind and start afresh. (LIVE SCORECARD)
