India vs Srilanka Live in India on Star Sports

Asia Cup has kicked off in style with no clear favourites to begin with. That is how interest grows in a big cricket tournament like this! India takes on Srilanka in another round robin match. These two teams have frequently faced each other in last few years. This time there would be a great involvement of pride as the teams clash in a tournament that is meant for supremacy in Asian cricket. A loss in the round robin may reduce chances of a team making it to the semi finals. Cricket fans in India can enjoy India vs Srilanka live telecast on Star Sports TV channel with English and Hindi commentary. One can also enjoy live streaming of this match on Star Sports website.

India has played 142 ODI matches against Srilanka with 77 wins and 53 defeats to Srilanka. 11 matches have ended in no result and one ended in a tie in 2012. Bangladesh being a neutral venue, let us have a look at the neutral venue record. Out of 43 ODI matches played between India and Srilanka on neutral venues, India has clinched 25 wins whereas Srilanka has won 15. Two ended without any result and one ended in a tie. One of the biggest clashes between these two teams happened in 2011 when India defeated Srilanka in ICC World Cup 2011.

Talking about the Asia Cup meetings between these two teams, Srilanka has won nine matches and India has won nine too. The first Asia Cup match between these teams was played on 8th April 1984 at Sharjah where India registered a comprehensive win with 10 wickets. Last time these teams clashed in an Asia Cup match on 13th March 2012 at Dhaka where India clinched a win by 50 runs. Virat Kohli scored a century.

Many cricket fans would feel the absence of captain cool MS Dhoni but the way team has performed in recent past, many also believe its worth giving Kohli a chance to lead the side. Virat Kohli is easily one of the most reliable and consistent batsmen in the current cricketing scenario. He has not only scored runs in India but he has been highly successful in the away matches as well.

Srilanka would be high on confidence with a win in the Asia Cup opening match against Pakistan. Lasith Malinga's fifer crushed Pakistan's hopes of winning the match. Earlier when Srilanka batted first, Lahiru Thirimanne scored a brilliant century well supported by a 67 runs innings from ever consistent Kumar Sangakkara. All rounder Angelo Mathews also contributed with a quick half century.

It is difficult to choose a favourite from India and Srilanka but this surely promises to be a tough encounter between these two. Enjoy Asia Cup live streaming online!
