The Sri Lankans were then bundled out for just 137 thanks to Arshdeep Singh's incredible comeback performance taking three wickets in 2.4 overs while giving away just 20 runs. Now moving to the ODI series, here look at the picture painted by numbers and statistics and who they depict could be the winner.
1. Toss Prediction:
The Indian team has a better chance to win the toss as they have won more toses in their last five ODI games in comparison to Sri Lanka.
2. Win Possibility:
India has a better chance to win the first game at Guwahati. The Men in Blue have been dominant in the T20I series with a bunch of young players. But moving towards 50-over cricket, India has put forth a squad which adds some world-class players to this young team. The return of stars like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah makes India out-and-out favourites in this fixture.
3. Predicted powerplay score and Average first innings total:
The Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati has presented a pitch where the batters have a slight advantage. Over the three international games (1 ODI and 2 T20Is) played in this stadium, the average 1st innings score in ODIs 332 and in T20Is is 178. Whereas the predicted powerplay score is expected to be between 50-55.
