Sri Lanka will play five One Day International series against India to fill the vacuum created by the West Indian Team who flew back home without completing their tour. The Men in Blue have an upper hand against the Lankan Lions by winning 78 games out of 144, the latter was successful 54 times, 11 ended without any result and one was tied. The hosts defeated the Windies 2-1 in the recently concluded ODI series whereas the Islanders grabbed the previous three match series against Pakistan 2-1. MS Dhoni has pulled himself out from the first three games since he wanted to take some rest prior to the tour of Australia. The forthcoming series will be a thrilling one since both sides are capable of exhibiting high class cricket.

Players to watch

The most successful bowler of the home side in the recent time, Mohammed Shami, got injured and will be out of the series while Bhuvneshwar has been rested. Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane scored quite a few runs in the last series vs. West Indies. Murali Vijay and Ambati Rayudu are capable batsmen while their bowling will be looked after by Ishant Sharma, Varun Aaron, Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Dhawal Kulkarni and Umesh Yadav.

Lahiru Thirimanne has not been included in the first three ODIs whereas Dinesh Chandimal, Lasith Malinga and Rangana Herath were not considered due to different reasons. Angelo Mathews and Mahela Jayawardene were among runs vs. Pakistan while Kumar Sangakkara, Tillakaratne Dilshan and Upul Tharanga are solid batsmen. Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara, Suraj Randiv and Dhammika Prasad form a reasonable bowling line up.
