The Sri Lankan team that came to India lost the 3-match T20I series by 1-2, and now the 3-match ODI series is going on. Rohit Sharma has been appointed as the captain and Hardik Pandya as the vice-captain. Bumrah, who was included in the team, was dropped from the team at the last moment. The first ODI between the two teams took place at the Guwahati stadium yesterday. In this, Sri Lankan captain Dasun Shanaka, who won the toss, chose to bowl.
Accordingly, the Indian team, who batted first, accumulated 373 runs for the loss of 7 wickets at the end of 50 overs.
