India vs Sri Lanka will play in the 1st Test of the Sri Lanka tour of India 2022 at Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali. We will cover IND vs SL Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
After the T20Is it’s now time for test cricket. This game is all about Virat Kohli as he will be playing his 100th test game for India.
India is in a transitional period as they will look to try some young guns in the middle-order to fill the boots of Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane.
Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin will be the key bowlers for India in the spin friendly tracks along with Jayant Yadav.
Jasprit Bumrah will be their key pacer along with Mohammad Shami or Mohammad Siraj. The home side will look to dominate on their home soil and make this match a remarkable one for Virat Kohli in particular.
Sri Lanka comfortably won their last test series against West Indies on their home soil but will be low on confidence on this tour.
They too have some quality spinners in their lineup and will be crucial. Lasith Embuldeniya and Praveen Jayawickrama will be their key spinners.
Lahiru Kumara and Suranga Lakmal will be their key pacers. The batting will be heavily dependent on Skipper Dimuth Karunaratne and experienced Angelo Mathews.
Sri Lanka will definitely put up a fight and at least try to draw the match. They can surprise the hosts with their spinners.
