In a three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka, beginning tomorrow, January 10, at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium, where India will try to have their World Cup preparations in order. By the end of 2022, the Men in Blue had lost two ODI series in a row, the first to Bangladesh and the second to New Zealand. Ishan Kishan’s double century and Virat Kohli’s 72nd international century in the third game against Bangladesh, however, allowed India to demonstrate the potential of its players. The hosts intend to keep doing things that way. In November of last year, Sri Lanka played Afghanistan in an ODI match that ended in a 1-1 draw.

Recently, the two teams engaged in a thrilling T20I series, with India emerging victorious after three games. The majority of India’s top players would now travel to the ODI series with confidence and momentum, hoping to repeat their success. In advance of the first ODI in the series, let’s take a look at the weather forecast for the game, which is scheduled to be played at the Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati.
Who will the Barsapara Cricket Stadium favour? The Batters or the Bowlers?
In less than three months, Barsapara Cricket Stadium will play host to its second international game. India and South Africa played a T20I match here in October of last year. This will be the second ODI to be played in the city, and this field has only previously hosted one ODI. Although the sample size for this field is quite small, it is safe to say that batters have dominated this field. In an ODI between India and the West Indies that took place here in 2018, India easily overcame the 323-run target. Both teams scored more than 200 runs in the most recent T20I between India and South Africa.
The batters have had success on this surface in the past, and this match should be no different. Additionally, the field’s dimensions are very small, and the outfield is swift. The spinners might enter the game as the game progresses. After all, is said and done, a high-scoring game is predicted; therefore, the captains may decide to chase after winning the toss.
