Sri Lanka Vs India 2nd ODI Dream11 Prediction
India will be on a tour of Sri Lanka which consists of a 3-match T20 series and a 3-match ODI series that is scheduled from 18th July 2021 to 29th July 2021. The ODI series between the 2 teams is being held from 18-23 July 2021 at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. The second-string squad of India is representing the country in this tour and is being headed by Shikhar Dhawan as the team will be missing core players such as Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and Jasprit Bumrah due to their break after the England tour. The Sri Lankan squad, on the other hand, is being led by Dasun Shanaka and includes mostly young inexperienced players.
With the T20 World Cup squad announcement coming closer, all young players from India will try to showcase their best form to make the cut for the T20 squad. The Sri Lankan squad have just been back from their England tour after a straight whitewash in the ODI as well as the T20 series, so they are in desperate need of a victory. With their home-ground advantage against India, they will try their best to get back onto winning ways. The 2st ODI between the two sides is scheduled to be held on 18th July 2021 and will be an important decider match in the series.

- Timings: 3:00 PM (IST)

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 30 degrees Celsius and a minimum temperature of 27 degrees Celsius with 78 percent humidity.

SL vs IND Dream11 Prediction – Probable Winner:
The Sri Lankan side has a definite home-ground advantage but as the stats suggest, India has greater wins than Sri Lanka themselves on their home turf. With the Sri Lankan young side lacking experience, it is even more difficult for them to defend against a team as strong as India even if they come with their second-string squad for the tour. Hence, the Indian team is expected to win the 2nd ODI and also to win the ODI series.
