Sri Lanka won the toss and have elected to field first. Led by Rohit Sharma, a second-string Indian squad will participate in the tri-nation Nidahas Trophy 2018 which features hosts Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. With the absence of star powers like MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah and Kuldeep Yadav, this tournament is the perfect platform to test the mettle of the youngsters. Going by the current form India are the favourites to lift the title. However, skipper Rohit Sharma has refused to consider India as favourites stating the unpredictable nature of T20 cricket. Hence, this tournament promises to be an intriguing T20 contest.
