India win toss, Sri Lanka bat first in ODI

It then continued to be much the same on Sunday as he smashed Sri Lanka into submission with an unbeaten 132 from 90 balls with 20 fours and three sixes to guide India to a nine-wicket win in the first One-Day International. Sri Lanka needs 2 wins before September 30 to stall Windies and progress directly to the main stage of the 2019 World Cup but might find their task cut out with India playing dominating cricket.

Shikhar Dhawan was on a rampage as he slammed his fastest ODI hundred, coupled with Virat Kohli's 70-ball 82 to guide Team India to their biggest ODI victory in terms of overs to spare. Sri Lanka managed 1421 in six innings at an average of just 24.92. But since Ajinkya Rahane and KL Rahul are also around, it remains to be seen if rotation based policy will seen in the ODI series. "If you want to be world beaters and win everywhere in the world, you need to do certain things that are out of the box". Even in the Champions Trophy, they beat us.

After a dour Test series, Sri Lanka needed some early momentum in the shorter formats and Niroshan Dickwella provided them with that, starting off in blistering fashion in the company of Danushka Gunathilaka. They were off to a decent start but fell prey to the Indian bowling unit as their wickets started to fall like a pack of cards after they reached 139.

"Last year, when I was with you, I had said my experience was good, I had told the participants that we will surpass this number". "We can perform well". In comparison, we lack consistency and that has been a big drawback.

Interestingly, Virat Kohli is not the fittest Indian cricketer as per this test. But too often have they perished with the rest following in procession. Sri Lanka in a disarray. The target that was given by Sri Lanka was of 216 in 43.2 overs. He is the most important part of the team and plays at the most important position.

The couple is enjoying the call of nature all the way in Sri Lanka.

WICKET! This is inexplicable from Sri Lanka. I would say that I even played like this in my debut Test match against Australia, or like I played in Galle in the first Test here. We have lacked confidence. Our fielding has been awful. We have dropped catches and consistency has been lacking. (It) Looks like a good wicket. We will stick to two seamers. Also, Axar is a useful batsman and that helps us.

It all went good for India in this match.

Skipper Virat Kohli also praised Dhawan for his innings and said the team wanted him to stay in the happy zone, which he is in now. In worldwide cricket you need to have that experience.

There was a huge element of India's dominance in the Test series, against Sri Lanka, who were criticised for the manner of defeat on their home turf.
