Greenfield has historically been a bowler-friendly pitch, with pacers getting early swing and the pitch slowing down as the match progresses. On match day, Trivandrum will have cool and breezy weather, making for ideal playing conditions.

India vs Sri Lanka Prediction

India has been on a roll in the white ball format for a long time, but they have been hampered by key player injuries. They will look to bolster their squad ahead of the World Cup, and players will vie for selection. So far, the Sri Lanka team has been inconsistent and led by individual brilliance. We believe India will win this match. Check out the odds at Cricbaba!

India is the favourite to beat Sri Lanka at the odds of 1.20.

India vs Sri Lanka Most Recommended Player for Bet:

KL Rahul scored 64 runs in the previous match. His half-century threw much impact on the game, and hence India just not won the game but also attained a series. So, we recommend backing him as the highest run-scorer against Sri Lanka.
