Sri Lanka vs England, 1st ODI, LIVE streaming: Teams, time in IST and where to watch on TV and online in India

In demanding conditions, top-ranked England will front up to a somewhat downcast Sri Lanka as they make a return to ODI cricket for the first time since July in the first of five matches at Dambulla on Wednesday.

Sri Lanka have reappointed Chandimal as captain with Angelo Mathews removed as skipper  in controversial circumstances, and made some changes to the team that exited the recent Asia Cup with successive defeats to Bangladesh and Afghanistan. Sri Lanka have slipped to eighth in the ODI rankings after a poor run in ODIs over the past two years, in which time they have lost bilateral series to South Africa (twice), Pakistan (twice), India (twice) and to Zimbabwe at home last year.

Since Eoin Morgan was named ODI skipper after the last World Cup, England have won 13 of 17 bilateral ODI series to surge to No 1 in the ICC rankings. Driving this dramatic white-ball upsurge has been a core group of players that toured Sri Lanka for four years ago and will know what is required to succeed this time, all with an eye on the World Cup.
