Live streaming and live cricket score of India vs Sri Lanka, 1st ODI, Dambulla, will be available online on Sunday. India clean sweeped the three-match Test series 3-0 against the islanders. This day-night encounter will be the 151st between the two teams in one day international cricket and 57th in Sri Lanka. No two teams have played each other this often. Pakistan-Sri Lanka is second at 148, and Australia-West Indies third at 139.

India, whose last tour of Sri Lanka in 2015 ushered in a new era of supremacy for the top-ranked Test side, are looking to ride their sweep of Test victories into the shorter-format series. 

The loss of their Champions Trophy title to arch-rival Pakistan was a bitter pill for India, and the two-time World Champions will be seeking a comeback in Sri Lanka.

 Newly-appointed ODI vice-captain Rohit Sharma urged his men against becoming complacent, reminding them of their surprise loss to Sri Lanka in the opening round of the Champions Trophy. India are scheduled to play a lone Twenty20 in Colombo on September 6 after the completion of the ODI series.

The live broadcast of the match will be shown on DD National, Sony Six, Sony Six HD and Ten 3 while the live streaming of the match can be caught on The match is scheduled to start at 2:30 PM IST.

India will begin the journey to identify the core of their 2019 World Cup squad when they square off against a low-on-confidence Sri Lanka in a five-match ODI series, starting on Sunday.

The visitors won the three-Test series by a comfortable 3-0 margin and will look to take that momentum into the limited-overs' leg of the tour as well.

However, India are not treating this as just another bilateral ODI series. Chief selector MSK Prasad clearly outlined this, stressing on the aspect of fitness as Team India begins its preparations for the 2019 ODI World Cup in England.

The Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium hasn't been a happy hunting ground for the Men in Blue, though.

They have played 17 ODIs here, stretching back to 2004, and won nine of those matches, including bilateral and triangular series (in 2005 and 2010 involving West Indies and New Zealand respectively), and two Asia Cups in 2004 and 2010.

Head-to-head against Sri Lanka, they have played 11 ODIs at this venue but only managed to win four of them. Perhaps the most important marker in India's history at Dambulla was their game here in August 2008, when Virat Kohli made his international debut.

He returns here now, not only as a premier batsman in world cricket but also as the Indian skipper.
