By Sonam G

IND vs SL Dream11 Prediction: Welcome to the First T20I between India and Sri Lanka. India are the No 1 ranked team in this format after the series win against West Indies. Throughout the series it was the Indian middle order who rescued the hosts and there were some excellent individual performance as well. On the other hand, Sri Lanka are coming on the back of a 4-1 loss to Australia recently and despite a score line like that they fought very well and there were competitive throughout the series. The last time these teams met Sri Lanka beat India 2-1 albeit that was a second string Indian team. Both these teams have plenty of exciting players and this series will be a good audition for the upcoming WT20 in Australia.
