India will lock horns with Sri Lanka in match 8 of ICC Champions Trophy 2017. This Group B clash will be played at The Oval. The live cricket streaming will be available on Hotstar, while the live telecast will be available on Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 1 HD, along with Hindi commentary on Star Sports 3 and Star Sports 3 HD and Tamil commentary on Star Sports 1 Tamil. All the same, if India win they will qualify for the semi-finals, given South Africa and Pakistan have already won and lost a match each. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, will have to win to stay alive in the tournament. Their defeat against South Africa in their first match have put them in a do-or-die situation.

India are likely to play the same winning combination they had featured against Pakistan. With Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma adding 136 for the first wicket, Ajinkya Rahane will have to wait for the opportunity. So is the case with Ravichandran Ashwin and Mohammed Shami, as the bowling unit was rather clinical against the fallible Pakistan. Virat Kohli, ahead of the game, told reporters that Ashwin is professional when it comes to the team composition and that he very well understands the dynamics.

Stand-in captain Upul Tharanga was banned for 2 matches, failing to maintain the over-rate against South Africa. However, skipper Angelo Mathews’ comeback will be a sigh of relief for the struggling team.
