Mohali ODI: Resurgent India off to steady start against Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka captain Thisara Perera won the toss and opted to field first against Rohit Sharma-led India.

While India find themselves in an unusual situation at home, Sri Lanka have a golden opportunity to seal the series after ending a 12-match losing streak with a thumping win in Dharamsala.

Lanka, on the other hand, will strike with full force in order to clinch their maiden ODI series win this year. So a damp wicket could once again test the Indian top-order. Lakmal, who has constantly troubled the best of Indian batsmen on this tour every time he's got assistance from the track, served the dominant hosts a timely eye-opener.

Team India is, for a change, not in the limelight as far as cricket is concerned.

Barring Dhoni, the Indian batsmen were all at sea against the moving ball in Dharamsala but Sundar said such kind of surfaces are elsewhere too in the country.

India: 1 Rohit Sharma (capt), 2 Shikhar Dhawan, 3 Shreyas Iyer, 4 Dinesh Karthik, 5 Manish Pandey, 6 MS Dhoni (wk), 7 Hardik Pandya, 8 Washington Sundar, 9 Bhuvneshwar Kumar, 10 Jasprit Bumrah, 11 Yuzvendra Chahal. Rahane sat out of the opening game as the team management only sees him as the back-up opener in the presence of Sharma and Dhawan.

While Mohali may not be as cold as Dharamsala, the pacers could still have a say in the second match, considering it will be another 11.30 am start. It will also be their first series win against India in India in any format. Against New Zealand, they went into the second ODI with everything to play for and in Mohali again, victory is a must.

"I knew lot of the players before and have played people like with Mahi bhai (Mahendra Singh Dhoni) in the IPL".

The Sri Lankans will take a lot of heart from the performance of their experienced all-rounder Angelo Mathews, who not only came good with the ball, picking the crucial wicket of Dhawan but also guided the visitors home with an unbeaten 25.
