Toss Sri Lanka chose to bowl vs India
Sri Lanka won the toss and chose to bowl first in the first ODI, in Guwahati. Rohit Sharma said India would have chased too, largely because substantial dew tends to form in the evening at this ground, which makes gripping the ball more difficult for bowlers.
Weather is not expected to interrupt this match. Sri Lanka desperately need to win these matches, as they seek to earn qualification for the ODI World Cup later this year. As hosts, India qualify automatically for the tournament.
