Colombo Weather Forecast For July 18

A Virat Kohli-less India team takes on injury-hit hosts Sri Lanka in the first ODI on Sunday at the R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo. Eyes would be on the skies as there are high possibilities of rain playing spoilsport. The prediction is that there would be scattered rainfall throughout Sunday. This could get rather irritating for the players. The humidity as expected in this part of the world – would be on the higher side and that would make the playing conditions uncomfortable for the players.

SL vs IND Toss

Despite it being a so-called ‘second-string’ Indian side, they would still start overwhelming favourites against the visitors. With it likely to rain, toss becomes even more interesting. From a captain’s point of view, it would be a good toss to lose. The side winning the toss would in all probability put the opposition into bat.
