Hello everyone and welcome to the coverage of the first ODI between Sri Lanka and India at the Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium, Dambulla. The hosts put up no fight in the Test series but cricket fans around the globe will hope that the ODIs are not the same. The home side needs to win at least two games out of the five in the series to ensure automatic qualification in the 2019 World Cup. India on the other hand have already shown what they are aiming for - building a team for the mega event. Virat Kohli has talked about giving players roles and observing how they go about their job. They do start as favorites but will remember that they were beaten by the very same team in the Champions Trophy earlier this year. They will want to be cautiously confident than being complacent.
