SL vs IND Dream11 Match Prediction Choice For Captain And Vice-Captain

Shikhar Dhawan needs no introduction. The veteran opener will be looking to make full use of the opportunity here. In the ODIs, he has scored 5977 runs and is likely to reach 6000 runs here. 

Suryakumar Yadav will take care of the middle order for the Indian team. Yadav has an excellent record in domestic cricket and has recently made heads turn with his performances in the IPL. He is a must-have in this contest. 

Wanindu Hasaranga has been the familiar name one has been hearing for a while now. The youngster has been consistent in all formats of the game and is an excellent pick for the captain in the fantasy side.

Hardik Pandya might not bowl his full quota here but he will be keen to contribute with the bat. He will be playing the finishing role for the team and one can expect a quick cameo from him today. 

Bhuvneshwar Kumar will be leading the Indian bowling line-up here. He will enjoy bowling in the death overs at this stadium and he is likely to pick a wicket or two in this contest. 

Dasun Shanaka will look to make a mark on his captaincy debut here. He is the best batter the team has at the moment and a lot depends on him in this contest. 

Prithvi Shaw will be raring to go in this contest. He is back into the Indian team and will look to impress here. The opener was dropped after a series of poor outings but he made a comeback after smashing right and left in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and the IPL.
