The preparation for the upcoming ODI world cup will kickstart today with the 1st ODI between India vs Sri Lanka. The 1st ODI will happen at Guwahati which happens to be a batting-friendly surface. The news yesterday came out that Team India fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah will be back in the action for some more months. Rohit Sharma has already confirmed that Shubhman Gill will be his opening partner and Ishan Kishan, the double centurion has to wait for his time.
Due to the cold weathers, Guwahati might face dew and it comes into the picture for the team batting second. Shami will return to the ODI legs, and Siraj might share the new ball. The spin trio Washington Sundar, Axar Patel, and Yuzvendra Chahal will provide the required batting depth.
Predicted playing XI: Rohit Sharma, Shubhman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer/Suryakumar Yadav, KL Rahul, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj
