IND vs SL Dream11 Team Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips and Playing 11 Updates for 1st T20I

After winning the One Day International (ODI) series, the Shikhar Dhawan-led side will look dominate in the three T20Is as well.

IND vs SL Dream11

The first Twenty20 International (T20I) between India and Sri Lanka will take place on July 25, 2021, at the R Premadasa International Cricket Stadium, Colombo. The game will kickstart from 8:00 PM local time – 8:00 PM (IST) onwards and will be streamed live on Sony Sports Network and Sony Liv.

After a brilliant start to this tour, team India miserably lost the third and final One Day match. However, they clinched the three-match ODI series 2-0 before coming to this game. This T20I series will also mark India’s last affair in the shortest format before the start of the much-awaited ICC 2021 T20 World Cup in the UAE.

As a result, a lot will depend on the performances of players like Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Deepak Chahar who are really close to booking a berth in the 15-member national squad. Talking about the opposition, Sri Lanka will definitely have the momentum with them as the T20I series begins in Colombo. Nonetheless, a great game of cricket is expected to take place between these two sides.

Let’s look at our fantasy 11 predictions for this clash and here are the top picks for IND vs SL.
