Rohit Sharma at the Toss
We are happy to bat first. We would have liked to bowl as well, it’s a good challenge. The ground was flooded with dew yesterday. There will be times where we need to bowl under dew, we got to be ready for that with the World Cup around the corner. It’s about doing the basics right, it’s important to do things differently at times. We need to keep moving in the right direction. Had a great time playing an ODI last time, hope we’ll have another memorable game today.

Sri Lanka wins toss, asks India to bat first
Toss becomes very vital as dew will come into play very early and the skipper winning the toss will opt to bowl first. India has been predominantly very good with chasing and Rohit will hope that the coin lands in his favour.
Pitch Report by Deep Dasgupta
“It’s a venue where batters enjoy, it’s a high scoring venue. The pitch is on the drier side, and there are a few cracks. Dew might come into play tonight. The team fielding second will have a tough time because it will be tough to grip the ball. The pitch looks a good one to bat on, but chasing will be easier here. The wicket will grip a bit in the first innings, but not so, in the second innings. Captain winning the toss might elect to bowl first.”

India begins World Cup preparations
With just nine months left for the 50-over World Cup at home, the real countdown begins for India now with a three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka, starting at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium on Tuesday.
India will host three countries, also including New Zealand and Australia, playing a three-match series with each of them, at nine different venues in the pre-Indian Premier League (IPL) phase.
While the workload will be closely monitored, one is certain to witness various experiments in this phase before a more settled unit fine-tunes itself in the final phase.
