With some guaranteed thrill, it is for sure that the starting day of this week will not be stressful for cricket fans as India take on Sri Lanka at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on March 12, 2018. Both the teams would surely want to win this game as the previous loss of Sri Lanka against Bangladesh has brought the three teams at the same level on the point table.

Live updates:

14 overs: Sri Lanka 121/6

Sri Lanka 35/2 in 4 overs.

Toss Report:

India has won the toss and ask SL to bat first. The match is going to start at 20:20 Local Time.

The showers are gone now and the covers are getting back to the stands.

The rain did try to play the trick and reduced the play to a 19 overs match for both sides where four bowlers can bowl four overs each while the other can deliver only three.

The topic to worry about for the Indian side is that untested players are on the forefront. With KL Rahul, Axar Patel, Deepak Hooda, Mohammad Siraj in the team today, it is surely going to be an action-packed Monday.

Match facts and news

With quite a high probability of thundershowers, there are chances that the rain might interrupt the game.

The experiment that the Indian team is conducting today keeping the untried players in the playing XI might cost them a loss but then again it is a game of uncertainties.

So nothing can be taken for granted at this point in time.

The bowlers would be having an advantage over the wicket as the batting pitch doesn’t respond accordingly during the power plays. It would depend on the bowlers how they tackle their line and length during the power plays.
