India & Sri Lanka โ€“ Strong Asian Teams

India and Sri Lanka are two strong asia international teams which have dominated the world in the early 90โ€™s and 2000โ€™s. The first international match between India and Sri Lanka was played in the year 1979.  Sri Lanka had won that match convincingly. In those days Sri Lanka was a very competitive team and had defeated India many times in both world-cups and bilateral series.

India vs Sri Lanka Head to Head in Tests:

The first test match between India and Sri Lanka was played in 1982. A total of 44 test matches were played between the two sides. India had won 20 games, Sri Lanka won 7 games and the remaining 17 had ended in a draw.

It has been a long time since India and Sri Lanka played a test match or a test series. The last time these two teams met was four years ago in 2017.

India vs Sri Lanka Head to Head in ODIโ€™s:

India has played Sri Lanka the most number of times (159) than any other opposition. 91 times India had defeated Sri Lanka in one day internationals whereas Sri Lanka had won 56 matches. The remaining matches were either tied or abandoned.

India vs Sri Lanka Head to head in T20Iโ€™s:

A total of 19 matches were played between India and Sri Lanka out of which India had the upper hand with 13 wins and 5 loses and one match had ended in a draw.

IND vs SL Head to head in ICC events:

India and Sri Lanka have faced 9 times in ICC cricket world and it has been a balanced outcome in terms of result. India and Sri Lanka have won 4-4 matches each and one match was abandoned. 

These two teams have met twice in ICC event finals. Once in ICC Cricket World Cup 2011 which was won by India and the other in ICC T20 World Cup 2014 which was won by Sri Lanka.

India and Sri Lanka โ€“ the two Friendly rivals

Whenever these two teams met, it never looked like it was any intense rivalry or mental toughness. There are many high scoring encounters between India and Sri Lanka. From a fanโ€™s perspective, wherever India plays Sri Lanka in ODIโ€™s they (fans) sit back and enjoy the long batting of both the teams. There were many popular matches played between these two sides whenever an IND vs SL series took place.

ICC 50 Overs World Cup 2011

Indiaโ€™s World Cup victory came after 28 years against this particular opposition. India, chasing a big total of 274 runs were under pressure especially after being 31 for 2 and losing two important top-order batsman Sehwag and Sachin. Gambhir and Kohli consolidated with decent runs in the middle overs but Kohli got out by a soft dismissal scoring only 34 runs.

Then walked in skipper MS Dhoni at number 5 when India still required 161 from 28 overs. He (Dhoni) batted with full confidence and at any time didnโ€™t look as if he was under pressure. 

Dhoni convincingly finished the match by hitting the six and eventually India won by 6 wickets.

ICC T20 World Cup 2014

Sri Lanka won their first T20 World Cup against India at Dhaka. Sri Lanka chasing a low score of 130 were in trouble at one stage as they were 78 for 4 in 13.4 overs. Experienced Kumar Sangakara played a crucial knock of 52 runs of 35 balls. Thisara Perera quick-fire camio helped Sri Lanka to reach the target with two overs to spare. 

India and Sri Lanka upcoming series / fixture

India is expected to tour Sri Lanka immediately after IPL in June 2021. Three ODIโ€™s and five T20Iโ€™s (tentative) are scheduled for this tour according to IND vs SL schedule in ICC FTP Tours Programme.

India will stay back in Sri Lanka to play the Asia cup in July 2021. They will be well prepared for the Asia cup as they would have already played a bilateral series at the Sri Lankan soil.

Nowadays, unfortunately there is not enough tough competition by Sri Lanka against India. 

Last time when India toured Sri Lanka in 2017, they (Indians)  whited-washed Sri Lanka (9-0) in all three formats. Sri Lanka lost badly by an innings and runs in two out of three test matches they played in that tour. They couldnโ€™t win a single match in ODIโ€™s nor the one T20I match.

For a couple of years, the level of competition has gone down whenever these two teams have played, thatโ€™s the reason why India and Sri Lanka donโ€™t meet frequently in a bilateral series in comparison to those days in early 90โ€™s and 2000โ€™s.
