IND vs SL Live Score 1st ODI, India vs Sri Lanka Live Score, 1st ODI
On Tuesday, the 10th of January, India will lock horns with Sri Lanka in the 1st ODI at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati. Sri Lanka lost the T20I series by 2-1 and will now look to clinch the ODI series.
Despite missing a few senior players, India managed to win the T20Is and will be raring to bag the ODI series. Although the return of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma has boosted their batting, the focus will be on Shreyas Iyer, who enjoyed stellar success with the bat in 2022.
This series will also be a test for Ishan Kishan or Shubman Gill, whoever replaces Shikhar Dhawan as Rohit Sharma’s first-choice opening partner. It will also be interesting to see how the dynamic duo of Hardik Pandya and KL Rahul finish the innings and the spinner Indian think tank prefers for this clash.
With the senior players back in action, it will be a very tough task for Sri Lanka to get over the line in this series.
Before the 91-run defeat in the final, Sri Lanka gave India a run for their money in the T20I series. But their recent form in the 50-over format hasn’t been convincing, as they are coming off a drawn series against Afghanistan on home soil. However, before that, they recorded a 3-2 series win against mighty Australia and would like to replicate something similar in this series.
While all eyes will be on skipper Dasun Shanaka and spin maestro Wanindu Hasaranga, the likes of Kusal Mendis, Maheesh Theekshana and Kasun Rajitha are capable of winning matches on any given day. Meanwhile, the visitors would like better returns from Dhananjaya de Silva and Charith Asalanka, who blew hot and cold in the T20Is.
The batting order of Sri Lanka looks solid with the likes of Pathum Nissanka, Charith Asalanka, and, Dhananjaya de Silva at the top. Their bowling has been the area of concern with their pacer, D Chameera out with injury.

IND vs SL: Pitch Report
A batting-friendly surface has usually been the case in Guwahati. Early sunset in winter could bring dew into the picture earlier than expected, and make chasing a preferred choice of the captains. Spinners will play a key role in today’s encounter.
