Fixture: India vs Sri Lanka, 8th Match, Group B

Time/Date: 09:30 AM GMT/ 10:30 AM Local / June 08, 2017

Venue: Kennington Oval, London

Here we will be talking about the possible scenarios of the match that could help the fantasy players such as Dream11 users to make their Dream team better and help them win big.

Match and Pitch Report

Weather: There are chances of showers throughout the day and the threat increases as the day progresses. Maximum temperature is expected to be around 20°C.

Pitch Report: Three matches have been played here so far in the series and the first innings score reads as 305, 299, and 182. The pitch has been a decent one for batting but a new strip is likely to be used for this match. That will help the fast bowlers better with some movement and bounce.

Team News

India:

  • Having won the last match comfortably, they are unlikely to make any changes.
  • Sri Lanka struggled against Imran Tahir in their first match. So, if India looks to bring in an extra spinner (Ashwin), Bumrah might be the one to miss out.
  • Rest of the line-up is expected to remain same unless there is an injury.

Sri Lanka:

  • Their stand-in captain Upul Tharanga has been handed two-match suspension for slow over rate. Kusal Parera is likely to open the innings in his absence.
  • Chamara Kapugedera has been ruled out of the tournament due to a knee injury he sustained while practicing. Thisara Parera is expected to replace him in playing XI.
  • Angelo Matthews will be back for this clash but as a batsman only. He is still not fit enough to bowl.

Probable Playing XI: (In the Batting order)

India: Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (c), Yuvraj Singh, MS Dhoni (wk), Kedar Jadhav, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah.

Sri Lanka: Kusal Parera, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Kusal Mendis, Dinesh Chandimal, Angelo Mathews (c), Asela Gunaratne, Thisara Perera, Seekkuge Prasanna, Suranga Lakmal, Nuwan Pradeep, Lasith Malinga.
