India will go head-on-head against Sri Lanka in the first One Day International of the three-match series on January 10, Tuesday at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati. The two teams are coming into the Tuesday game after playing a three-match T20I against each other. The shortest format of the game saw a dominating performance by the Men in Blue as they recorded a win by 2-1. 

India made a blistering start to the T20I series. They won the first match by just two runs because of stunning batting performances by Axar Patel and Deepak Hooda. The debutant Shivam Mavi excelled with the ball as he picked up four wickets.

The second T20 International saw the Sri Lankan skipper Dasun Shanaka leading the attack. The captain was absolutely terrific as he registered a score of not out 56 runs off 22 balls. India’s Axar Patel also showed a lot of character with a knock of 65 runs but his efforts went in vain.

Meanwhile, speaking about the final match, India delivered an all-round performance in all facets of the game be it batting, bowling, or fielding. Suryakumar Yadav delivered a headline performance with a century under his belt. 

As far as ODIs are concerned, India will be playing their full strength in the format after a long time. In their last series against Bangladesh, they failed to put up a good fight and ended up losing by 1-2. On the other hand, Sri Lanka were decent as their three-match series against Afghanistan finished at 1-1.
