New Delhi: The first match of the series between India and Sri Lanka is just hours away. The first one-day match between India and Sri Lanka will be played in Colombo from 3 pm on July 18. The series was scheduled to begin on July 13, but some members of the Sri Lankan team that toured England were found corona positive. So the Sri Lanka Cricket Board asked BCCI to take the series forward, which was approved by the BCCI.

It was then decided that the first match of the series would be played on July 18. Tell you that three ODIs, three T20 matches are to be played on this tour. The final T20 match will be played on July 29, with the tour ending. In the history of ODI cricket, India and Sri Lanka have faced each other 159 times so far. The first series between India and Sri Lanka was played in 1982, in which Team India emerged victoriously. However, India and Sri Lanka had come face to face before. India was Sri Lanka's first match in 1979, in which Team India suffered a setback. However, it was not a bilateral series.

Since then, series between India and Sri Lanka have been played continuously. Out of 159 ODIs between India and Sri Lanka, Team India has won 91 matches, while Sri Lanka has won 56 matches. There were 11 matches in which no results could be achieved. In this way, according to statistics, Team India's position in Sri Lanka is overwhelming. While it has to be noted that some of India's star players are not part of the series, some star players are not playing in the Sri Lankan team, so the match could be level.
