1. Team News - India
Bumrah has recovered from a back injury while Dhawan returns after recuperating from a knee niggle. Bumrah and Dhawan are almost certain to walk back into playing XI. Dhawan will be forming the opening combination with in-form KL Rahul as Rohit Sharma is rested after a free-flowing year in which set several records. Guwahati is generally a slow pitch and India might look to field a spin-heavy attack here.
2. Team News - Sri Lanka
Under veteran pacer Lasith Malinga, Sri Lanka have the wherewithal to challenge India meaningfully. They have players who have vastly experienced in international cricket like Angelo Mathews, Isuru Udana, Kusal Mendis etc and would be hoping to see a team effort to stop India on their tracks. But they are a side in transition and in need of big guns firing from all cylinders against a young and hungry Indian team.
