India aim to reclaim top ODI ranking with Sri Lanka cleansweep

India aim to reclaim top ODI ranking with Sri Lanka cleansweep”

Rohit Sharma will lead India in Virat Kohli's absence while Thisara Perera will captain the visitors. The Indian squad for the ODI and T20 series that follows features multiple youngsters to give the senior players some much needed rest after a gruelling season - before focus shifts fairly and squarely on South Africa.

After years of relentless hardwork, with little rewards, Siddarth Kaul has finally crossed the first hurdle at 27.

In Virat Kohli's absence, who made a decision to take a break before the all-important South Africa tour, the team will be led by Rohit Sharma, who will become the 24th captain of the Indian ODI team.

In cricket, the opening One-day worldwide between and Sri Lanka at Dharamsala in Himachal Pradesh on Sunday has come under threat with the local weather office forecasting widespread rain and snow in the state.

Sri Lanka will bank on young batsman Dhananjaya de Silva, who scored a fighting century in the third Test to force a draw at Delhi. India have played three ODIs in Dharamsala and won two, losing one to England.

While the tweakers claimed 41 wickets in the last three ODI series versus Sri Lanka, Australia and New Zealand, the five-man pace attack claimed 58 wickets. "Kohli, who slammed back-to-back double-centuries and recorded three-figure scores in three consecutive matches, started the series in sixth position but has leapfrogged David Warner, Cheteshwar Pujara, Kane Williamson and Joe Root after the stupendous run which saw him average 152.50", an ICC release said.

With the match starting at 11:30 am in cooler confines and bouncy conditions, the toss could prove to be a crucial factor during the opening ODI.

India will go down to 119 points, even if they manage to win the series 2-1 win. The HD versions of these channels will also broadcast IND vs SL 1st ODI.
