Upul Tharanga-led Sri Lanka cricket team were seen training hard ahead of the first ODI of the five-match series against India. The series opener will be played on Sunday (August 20) at Dambulla. This will be hosts’ chance of revival after a disappointing Test series wherein they were whitewashed by visitors. Sri Lanka have been bolstered by the presence of Lasith Malinga, and he was seen bowling in the nets as well. Thisara Perera had a good pep talk with bowling coach Chaminda Vaas.

Sri Lanka will feel confident facing India in coloured clothings as they got the better of them in ICC Champions Trophy 2017 clash at The Oval, London.
