SL vs IND Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips for 1st T20I Match, India tour of Sri Lanka, 2021.

Sri Lanka will take on India in the 1st T20I on 25th July 2021. We will cover Sri Lanka vs India 1st Dream11 Prediction.

SL vs IND 1st T20I Match Preview

Sri Lanka:

Sri Lanka finally manages to win a match against India in Sri Lanka, but the win came after they had already lost the series. They put up a good performance and won the last game by three wickets. Avishka Fernando has been brilliant throughout the series, and Minod Bhanuka has also supported him well. At No.3, Rajapaksha batted well in one of the matches. 

Dhananjaya de Silva, Asalanka, and Dasun Shanaka have tried to stabilize the innings in all the matches, and Chamika Karunaratne has been a great finisher in the middle-order. The bowlers have improved a lot, especially the spinners. In the last ODI, Jayawickrama and Akila picked up three wickets each.

The fast bowlers have leaked a lot of runs and not picked up enough wickets. Sri Lanka needs to improve their bowling performance if they want to fight India’s tough fight in the T20I series.


India performed well in the ODI series and won comfortably by 2-1. They lost the last match as they had made six changes to give a chance to all the players. Shikhar Dhawan and Prithvi Shaw have been batting aggressively and providing an excellent start to the team. Both Ishan Kishan and Sanju Samson have batted well at No.3. 

Manish Pandey and Surya Kumar Yadav had some brilliant partnerships in the middle-order, but Hardik Pandya has struggled to perform as a finisher.  The bowlers have picked up wickets consistently. Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Chahar, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar have been in great form. India would go with their full strength and would win this series 3-0.
