SL vs IND 1st ODI Match Predictions and Betting Tips

The ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League will kickstart with a game between India and Sri Lanka. The match will be played at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on July 18. I have the top SL vs IND match predictions and betting tips from the game for you.

India are in almighty form, especially when it comes to the ODI format of the game. They have played 12 games in the last two years in 4 series. They lost the 2 series they played in Oceania against New Zealand and Australia. They also won 5 of the games, with 2 series wins in India against Australia and most recently, England. The Sri Lankan team have played 11 games in the last 2 years from 4 series. They lost 7 of these games, winning only 1 series against West Indies which was played at the Lankan Home ground.

Sri Lanka and India have played 159 games since 1979 and India have won 61.82% of the games. India have won 8 of the last 10 games played between the teams, and the last time Sri Lanka were able to win at home was in 2012. India are the clear favourites to win the match and the series and their current form are even better than the English team. Both the teams are represented by new leadership though and the Sri Lankan squad have more discontent with their pick. I have collated top Sri Lanka vs India match predictions from the 1st ODI, so you can win from the game.

SL vs IND Player Bets

The team bets lean heavily in favour of India. The oddsmakers have offered player bets which are hard to pick, but extremely rewarding at the same time. Take a look at the top SL vs IND player betting tips.

Shikhar Dhawan to score over 37.5 runs

You might think 38 runs is quite a big target for an ODI game, and you would generally be correct in assuming that. The thing is, Shikhar Dhawan has no filter once he starts scoring, and just goes for it. The recently appointed skipper and opener for India, has played 142 ODI matches and scored 5977 runs from them. This averages 45.42 and he has 17 centuries and 32 fifties. This is going to be his first game leading the Indian cricket team, and it should be interesting to see his style of leadership.

Shikhar Dhawan has a terrific record against Sri Lanka. He has played 16 games against them and scored 983 runs from the games. This is an average of 70.21 and he scored over the target in 10 of the games. With 4 centuries and 5 half-centuries against the team, Shikhar Dhawan should be able to coast to 38 runs in the upcoming fixture. The last time he went to Sri Lanka for a tournament he scored 132* runs in his 1st match against them. Shikhar Dhawan has great form in the 1st match of the series too. In his last 5 such games, he scored over 74 runs in 4 of the 5 games. This is one of the top SL vs IND betting tips for the 1st ODI. Dafabet.com has offered odds of 1.87 for Shikhar Dhawan to score over 37.5 runs.

Dhananjay Maduranga De Silva to score under 24.5 runs

The next bet is for the top order Sri Lankan Allrounder who recently completed 50 ODI matches. Dhananjay De Silva has scored 1064 runs from 47 innings at an average of 27.28. Dhananjay De Silva is an All-rounder who has not been able to show consistent results with either the bat or the ball. While he did score in a game against England, and Bangladesh in his last 2 series, he also scored under 10 runs in 3 of his 5 games in the series. He played just one game against India in Leeds and scored 29* runs against them. This doesn’t translate into aptitude because it was just 1 match and we know De Silva is quite inconsistent.

Dhananjay De Silva has played 18 games at home and managed to score over the target in just 5 games. He has come out to bat on the pitch in 5 games and scored over the target only once. De Silva has been coming out to bat as the 2nd down or the 3rd down this year. He has played 11 games in the position and has not managed to score over the target in 9 of the innings. In the 1st game of the series, He scored under the target in 5 of the 7 games. This is one of the top SL vs IND match predictions to win money from. Dafabet.com has offered odds of 1.87 for Dhananjay De Silva to score under 24.5 runs.

Oshada Fernando to score under 20.5 runs

The two teams have quite a lot of new talent playing for their squads this year. Sri Lanka has to deal with the loss of their captain Kusal Perera due to injuries and Dasun Shanuka will be leading the squad in the series. Oshada Fernando is one of the players who are generally not picked for the team, especially for ODI’s. He has played 8 ODI’s since his debut in 2019 and has scored 148 runs from them at an average of 18.50. While he scored over the target in his first 3 games, he hasn’t been able to do that since.

Oshada Fernando has never played India, or an ODI at home. He played only 1 game in Asia and managed to score just 1 run against Pakistan in the game. While he was able to score over the target against South Africa, he couldn’t really manage the same against, West Indies, England, and Pakistan. This is the final top SL vs IND match predictions from the ODI. Dafabet.com has offered odds of 1.87 for Oshada Fernando to score under 20.5 runs.
