PREVIEW

In vastly different ways, these are unsettled times for both Indian and Sri Lankan cricket. In India, there is ongoing administrative upheaval. There is disquiet over the coach’s position. Any day now, a decision on the Anil Kumble issue may further consolidate captain Virat Kohli and the team’s say in the running of affairs. India’s saving grace, however, has been the fact that Kohli has kept running a tight ship through this tsunami of administrative and inter-personal woes. This has ensured surprisingly smooth sailing on the field, where India’s only problems have been the ones of plenty.

Riding on the back of a 124-run win against Pakistan, a win at the Oval on Thursday will give India a direct ride into the semifinals. Unlike the raging administrative storm outside, they look a settled, resolute outfit in the dressing room. In typically authoritative fashion, Kohli did talk about the fielding having been, at certain times, below standard in their opening Champions Trophy game, but said he had “addressed that issue”.
Teams:
Sri Lanka (Playing XI): Niroshan Dickwella(w), Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews(c), Dinesh Chandimal, Kusal Perera, Asela Gunaratne, Thisara Perera, Suranga Lakmal, Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Pradeep

India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli(c), Yuvraj Singh, Hardik Pandya, MS Dhoni(w), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah
