India have made a shocking recovery in their batting lineup and making it master weapon on reality grounds. India have the best ability to play first 10 overs as some stats show that India have an average of 49 runs in power play (First 10 Overs) since the last world cup they played in 2015. Bowlers hard work increases more when Virat Kohli comes at crease and start smashing them. After Virat Kohli, the next batsmen MS Dhoni, Yuvraj and Pandya start attacking the bowlers in death overs and helping the team to get enter into 300+ target.
The Indian bowling lineup is also now quality one that includes young seamer Bhuvneshwar Kumar that is gearing up day by day and increasing his speed and pace time to time. Jasprite Bumrah is also on the mode of polishing himself and setting a new trend of divert pressure on the opposition in crucial time. Dispute between Kohli and coach Anil Kumble has not effected the team’ performance and this shows the professionalism height of team India.
On the counter side, Sri Lanka is expected to give a set back at the Oval. They are heavily relying on Angelo Mathews and Lasith Malinga to discharge India at batting pitch. Upul Tharanga is injured and expected to miss the match against India, but this injury is going to be fruitful for the Sri Lankan team at Oval. Kusal Perera will be playing in the top order along with Niroshan Dickwella and that is quite important to play atleast 15 overs against India at Edgbaston without losing a wicket.
