It is been 4 years since India and Sri Lanka have contested in a bilateral ODI sequence, a length when the cricketing would possibly of the 2 groups have headed in reverse instructions. It is come to some degree the place Sri Lanka’s newly-appointed captain Dasun Shanaka believes India’s near-second string aspect may be offering a fair contest even at house. And he most certainly is not a ways clear of the reality. At the same time as India have a beneficial 91-56 head-to-head document in opposition to Sri Lanka, considered one of one-day cricket’s most-oft performed, but understated rivalries have taken a mighty dip. For the 2 facets that performed 79 ODIs from 2005 to 2017, there is not considerable wearing ahead for a contention to carry. Barring the pre-series jibe by way of Arjuna Ranatunga on the Sri Lankan Cricket Board agreeing to host a vulnerable Indian aspect, there is not a large number of warmth exchanged.
