India vs Sri Lanka Bilateral Series to Begin from 5th January 2020
Indian Cricket team has been on a victory roll since its bilateral series against West Indies in August 2019. Since then the team had played bilateral series against South Africa, Bangladesh, and West Indies in all of which it stood victorious. The Indian Cricket team is currently the top contenders for the ICC T20I World Cup that is scheduled in October 2020.
Indian team currently is on the top of ICC Test Rankings, 2nd in ODI Rankings and 5th in T20I rankings. The team had a fantastic track record in the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup that happened in 2019. Though the team had retreated from the tournament in Semi-Finals, it had not lost a single match in the entire World cup till then. Its recent victory streak is one to brag about since the confidence that it has won will be the team’s greatest asset.
Many of the Indian team players Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Lokesh Rahul, Ajinkya Rahane, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, occupy a place in the top 10 ICC players ranking lists. The team is currently at its strongest and its track record against Sri Lanka after 2008 is extraordinary. The Indian team had not lost a single bilateral series against Sri Lanka in the 16 it had played since 2008. Both the teams have played 59 matches against each other in which India had won in 44.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka’s team also possesses fantastic players like Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews, Kusal Perera, Niroshan Dickwella, Lasith Malinga, etc. The team while had a rather flagrant history against India in recent years, the team will fight harder as this series is a prelude to their performance in the coming ICC T20I World Cup. The case being the same for both, we can expect a cutthroat battle between the teams thus making the series edge of the seat action.
