Battle of the ‘Second Strings’

A depleted, decimated and a demoralised Sri Lanka will start this afternoon against a still-strong ‘second string’ India in the tour-opening first One Day International (ODI), to be played behind closed-doors at 3.00pm in an all-day-night tour at the R. Premadasa Stadium.

Host come into the contest in horrendous form with on-and-off the field fiascoes. The severely depleted side would be led by yet another new 50-over captain for the umpteenth time, Dasun Shanaka, with he also leading an unofficial second string squad.
