India takes on Sri Lanka in the 1st One Day International at Dharamsala on Sunday. India recently defeated Sri Lanka in the recently concluded Test series. The visitors will be looking to finally register a win against India, something that has eluded them in 2017. There is one big change from India’s perspective as Virat Kohli, the regular captain will not be there, instead, Rohit Sharma will be marshalling the troops.
With Virat Kohli not in the side, in all likelihood, Shreyas Iyer will fit into that role, which should be a big opportunity for the debutante to make an impression.
Dharamsala could be a pitch that could help seamers early on because of the winters and overcast conditions. There are also talks of rain playing spoilsport, one can only hope rain gods smile on Sunday.
