The limited-overs series between India and Sri Lanka will now begin on July 18. In the absence of senior players Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan is seen as a favorite for Team India to reach Sri Lanka. The Sri Lankan team, which has an embarrassing record of high losses in ODI cricket, is constantly struggling in international cricket and England recently swapped Sri Lanka in the ODI and T20 series. Over the last few years Team India has completely dominated Sri Lanka in every format and India’s youth team under Dhawan’s leadership wants to further this record. Overall statistics tell us who is the strongest in both countries in ODI format.
