Kohli, Dhoni make Dambulla entry in style

Indian cricketer Rohit Sharma walks with his batting equipment during a practice session at Galle International Cricket Stadium in Galle Tharanga pleads for patience

India's captain Virat Kohli and Sri Lanka's captain Upul Tharanga hold the trophy as they pose for photographs before the first One-Day International match between Sri Lanka and India, in Dambulla, Sri Lanka, on August 20, 2017. The defeat, on the back of a poor outing in the ICC Champions Trophy in England, has led to Angelo Mathews' resignation as Sri Lanka skipper.

On one hand, where India has had a stunning run in limited-overs format, Sri Lanka have been struggling. Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar should be Kohli's first choice new-ball options. But, it is the spin department, which will lack experience, but not quality.

The third-ranked ODI team are fielding three fast bowlers and two spinners in Axar Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal.

So Dhawan and Rohit will continue to open the innings while Ajinkya Rahane will only serve as a reserve opener. "KL will definitely be playing in the middle-order". It's the second phase for Virat Kohli led India after Test series.

"So we need to seriously look at the team in the long-term and not keep chopping and changing", said de Silva, who quit as head of the board's cricket committee in May. So, he is an impact player, and Shikhar and Rohit, we know what they have done in the past together. You can't pick and choose. I have never believed in that and we as a team don't believe in that. Chief selector MSK Prasad clearly outlined this, stressing on the aspect of fitness as Team India begins its preparations for the 2019 ODI World Cup in England.


Probable Sri Lanka 11: Upul Tharanga (captain), Angelo Mathews, Niroshan Dickwella (wicketkeeper), Kusal Mendis, Chamara Kapugedera, Milinda Siriwardana, Malinda Pushpakumara, Thisara Perera, Lasith Malinga, Dushmantha Chameera, Vishwa Fernando.

From 139 for one, Sri Lanka caved in, losing the next six wickets for 39 runs, the host batsmen guilty of playing rash shots.

WICKET! Lasith Malinga departs for eight runs as MS Dhoni does a fantastic job behind the stumps.

Sri Lankan fans turned up at the venue expecting an improved showing from the meek surrender in the preceding Test series but they were left disappointed, at least on the batting front. He wants his team to get their confidence back, which can be achieved by beating India.

"Last year, when I was with you, I had said my experience was good, I had told the participants that we will surpass this number".
