The India tour of Sri Lanka 2021 is being held from 18th July to 29th July 2021 and includes a 3 match T20 and 3 match ODI series between the 2 teams. The ODI series is currently ongoing in the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. After the India tour of England, core players of the Indian team are being given rest and hence, the second-string squad of India has been sent to represent the country in this tour which is being headed by Shikhar Dhawan. The Sri Lankan squad on the other hand is also made of mostly new inexperienced players and is being led under the captaincy of Dasun Shanaka.
The T20 World Cup is about to start soon and the second-string players of India would definitely want to be a part of the World Cup squad so they will be at the top of their game. The young Sri Lankan squad on the other hand, have had far too many consecutive losses in their previous games and will have to secure wins in this tour to bring back the lost glory of the Sri Lankan cricket team. India is currently leading the ODI series and the 3rd ODI between the two sides is scheduled to be held on 23rd July 2021.
The India tour of Sri Lanka 2021 will be broadcasted on the Sony Sports Network channels. It will also be streamed live on the Sony LIV app.
The Premadasa Stadium pitch is considered to be a very slow pitch and does not generate a lot of speed making it difficult to bat. Hence, the teams batting first are at an advantage relatively, which is why the winner of the toss would choose to bat first.
The weather is going to be partly cloudy at the venue with a maximum temperature of 29 degrees Celsius and a minimum temperature of 26 degrees Celsius with 75 percent humidity.

The Sri Lankan side has the home-ground advantage in this tour and also is facing the second-string squad of India, yet they struggle to win the 1st match and lost by a huge margin. The Indian squad on the other hand has clearly dominated by both bat and bowl in the series. Hence, there is a much greater chance of India winning the final match and winning the ODI series of the Sri Lankan tour.
