India and Sri Lanka are gearing up for their 10th ODI encounter in the Asia Cup 2023, set to be held at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. As the Men in Blue prepare for their third consecutive match day, having contended with a rescheduled clash against Pakistan, questions about their momentum emerge. Buoyed by an impressive 13-match ODI winning streak, Sri Lanka faces its toughest challenge yet. With India's robust batting lineup and Sri Lanka's current formidable form, a thrilling contest is on the horizon.

Sri Lanka's recent run has been nothing short of spectacular, recording 13 consecutive ODI victories. This match, however, will gauge their prowess against India, the tournament's favourites. The Indians, in their previous outing, showcased their batting might against Pakistan, with Kohli and Rahul notching up centuries. Given India's formidable batting ensemble and Sri Lanka's impeccable winning streak, this match promises to be a cricketing spectacle.

The pitch at the R Premadasa Stadium offers a balanced surface favourable for both bowlers and batsmen. While the pacers can anticipate some bounce and movement, batsmen can also find value in their stroke play. Given the conditions, the team winning the toss might lean towards fielding first to later chase a target.

TAP TO PLAY

Weather in Colombo remains a potential concern for the day's play. Much like the previous game against Pakistan, rain interruptions loom. The match's start could see delays due to a predicted storm. Though a brief respite is expected between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., ominous clouds later on push the rain probability to 85%. Fans may have to ready themselves for a potentially truncated match if conditions dictate.
