IND vs SL 2017: First ODI: Sri Lanka wins the toss opted to field

The three match ODI series starts today in Dharmasala.

The ODI series between India and Sri Lanka starts today in Dharmasala. After losing the Test series, Sri Lanka will be itching to bounce back in colored clothing under their new skipper Thisara Perera.

For Sri Lanka, Angelo Mathews will be bowling in the ODi series which comes as a big relief for them. They will be playing in the chilly conditions of Dharmasala where the conditions are expected to favor the bowlers.

For India, Rohit Sharma will be leading India for the very first time in the absence of Virat Kohli who has been rested for the series. His experience of leading Mumbai Indians to three IPL titles will come in handy.
