Sri Lanka has been a formidable side in this tournament, boasting a 13-match winning streak in ODIs and remaining undefeated in the Asia Cup so far. In their previous game, they defeated Bangladesh convincingly, with Sadeera Samarawickrama scoring a brilliant 93 off just 72 balls, helping Sri Lanka reach a competitive total of 257. The bowlers, led by captain Dasun Shanaka, along with spin sensation Maheesh Theekshana and rising star Matheesha Pathirana, picked up 3 wickets each to dismiss Bangladesh for 236 runs. Sri Lanka may have a slight advantage, considering India is playing back-to-back games in two days, potentially affecting player fitness due to limited rest.
India put on a stellar performance in their previous outing against Pakistan, with their top-order batsmen in exceptional form. KL Rahul, returning from injury, made an impressive unbeaten 111, while the ever-reliable Virat Kohli notched up another century with 122 runs. The opening duo of Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill also put on a remarkable display, adding 123 runs for the first wicket. With batsmen in top form, India aims to continue their winning streak. Kuldeep Yadav was a standout performer, claiming his second 5-wicket haul against Pakistan. The bowling unit, including Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Siraj, and Hardik Pandya, also impressed with their swinging deliveries. India is clearly performing like the champion team they are and will be determined to secure another win tonight.
