IND vs SL Dream11 Prediction: Welcome to the First Test between India and Sri Lanka. India are coming to the series on the back of 2-1 loss in South Africa. They have taken some bold decisions and dropped their senior players for this series. They are placed in the middle of the WTC points table and with 9 more Tests left they have to win almost all of them in order to qualify for the finals. Sri Lanka are top of the WTC points table but have played only 2 matches so far and their real test starts from here and they will no doubt start as underdogs in this series. Both these teams have given some good performance in this format over the last year or so and this promises to be an exciting match.
