Numbers game: India hold edge over Sri Lanka in One-Day Internationals

India will be looking to maintain their stranglehold over Sri Lanka in home One-Day Internationals when the teams meet in the five-match series, starting, in Cuttack, on Sunday.

Sri Lanka, who haven’t won a One-Day International series in India, have won only 11 out of 43 matches played in the country. Their best result was the 1-1 draw in 1997-99 in which one match was abandoned.

India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni loves playing against the Lankans as his record -- 2086 runs in 57 matches, at an average of 61 -- proves, while Virat Kohli (1527 runs) and Suresh Raina (1187), among the current players, have also scored more than 1000 runs against the islanders.

Veteran Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene, with 2626 and 2467 runs respectively against India, are the two batsmen to watch out for amongst the visitors.

The last time the teams met in a bilateral series was in 2009-10 and India won the five-match affair 3-1, with one match abandoned.

As the teams get set to duel in the make-shift ODI series, Rajneesh Gupta gives us a look at how both teams measure up in One-dayers.
