Angelo Mathews won the toss and elected bowl first aginst India in their must-win group B match at the KIA Oval. Danushka Gunathilaka, who replaced Chamara Kapugedara in the playing XI will open batting with Niroshan Dickwella. Skipper Angelo Mathews comes into the side after missing the opening game against South Africa. Thisara Perera has replaced Seekkuge Prasanna in the playing XI.

Teams:

Sri Lanka (Playing XI): Niroshan Dickwella(w), Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Angelo Mathews(c), Dinesh Chandimal, Kusal Perera, Asela Gunaratne, Thisara Perera, Suranga Lakmal, Lasith Malinga, Nuwan Pradeep

India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli(c), Yuvraj Singh, Hardik Pandya, MS Dhoni(w), Kedar Jadhav, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Umesh Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah

Kohli: "We would have bowled first as well, but the pitch here is very good, doesn't change much. So we are not worried much about the toss. We have brought momentum into the game, but we need to play good cricket today to win. We are unchanged. Yuvi has been playing well since his return, had a recent IPL as well. Rohit playing well too gives the others a bit of cushion."

Mathews: "We will bowl first. Prasanna misses out. We have a total of three changes. Our batting didn't click, hopefully we'll get it right today."
