Watch India vs Sri Lanka 2017 Live Streaming on HotStar

India vs Sri Lanka 2017 Cricket Series Preview

The long lasting cricket affair between these two nations continue. Sri Lanka takes on India in yet another bilateral series. This would include test matches, ODI and T20 Internationals. This series would further help Virat Kohli and his men to gain some more confidence before they face South Africa in South Africa. 

Well, although we are bit tired of bilateral series between India and Sri Lanka, let us all not forget Sri Lanka is playing a test series in India after 9 long years! Now that brings some excitement. And Sri Lanka would certainly not feel comfortable after seeing the likes of England, South Africa and Australia losing test series here in the recent past.

Live streaming of India vs Sri Lanka 2017 test, ODI and T20 series will be available on HotStar. Enjoy live telecast on TV with live Hindi and English commentary.



Full Schedule

16 to 20 November 2017 - 1st Test at Kolkata

10 December 2017 - 1st ODI at Dharamsala

20 December 2017 - 1st T20 at Cuttack
22 December 2017 - 2nd T20 at Indore
24 December 2017 - 3rd T20 at Wankhede

Not so far in the past at home, Sri Lanka had to suffer a 3-0 loss against India. But they can take some inspiration from their efforts against Pakistan in UAE. While Sri Lanka still languishes and struggles to regain its lost glory, India under Virat Kohli is creating records one after the other.

India would try to continue its unbeaten streak against Sri Lanka at home. Kohli would also eye yet another test series victory at home before heading to South Africa with a more confident team. 

As far as the limited overs cricket is concerned, Sri Lanka may try their luck harder. Test series could be purely dominated by the hosts but ODI and T20 cricket still leaves a scope of uncertainties.

Let's see if this series turns out to be yet another one sided affair for India, or will Sri Lanka provide some resistance. Stay tuned with HotStar for live cricket match streaming and videos.

India vs New Zealand 2017 Series Preview

Kiwis visiting India isn't a regular sight. We often see Australia or Sri Lanka visiting India every second year.

Having said so, here we have a bilateral cricket series between India and New Zealand. These teams will lock horns for three ODIs and three T20 matches.

2nd T20 at Rajkot - 4 November 2017
3rd T20 at Thiruvananthpuram - 7 November 2017

Head to Head

India and New Zealand have had close encounters head to head. We often believe the likes of Australia or South Africa have been a tough competition for India. But when it comes to limited overs cricket, New Zealand have given some real tough time to India. 

Out of the 98 ODI matches played between these two teams, India has won 49 and New Zealand has won 43. Close enough! 

Surprisingly, New Zealand has never faced a defeat against India in a T20 International match. They have won all the five T20 matches played against India.

Prediction

Virat Kohli and his men are on a march to victories. They registered a comprehensive ODI series win over Australia recently. Series win over New Zealand would be another feather in Virat's hat. Meanwhile New Zealand would love to make a mark with this tour. 

If we compare the recent form, India are doing way better than the visitors. Having said so, Kane Williamson has made his intentions clear. He and his men would play aggressively to put some pressure on the inform Indian team.

If we talk about prediction, it highly seems the results would be in favour of India. But the hosts may find it hard to clean sweep the series, especially the T20 International matches.

Eager Fans

Fans are absolutely eager for this cricket series. Being played around the Indian festivals, fans love to watch cricketing crackers in the form of sixes and tumbling wickets. Who doesn't like to watch a tussle between two of the world's best batsmen Kohli and Smith. The series also brings the best out of the likes of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Warner, Finch and many more to name. 

Smith's strategy

After a not so good tour to Bangladesh, we can expect cautious approach from the Australian side. They were defeated by Bangladesh in the first test followed by a win to level the series. Smith has clearly stated that they can taste success to a great extent if they can keep Kohli silent. But that isn't going to be easy, especially when Kohli's bat smiles against the Kangaroo bowlers. 

Kohli at the front foot

Kohli and men are high at confidence. They won nine straight matches against Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka which is one of the best performances for any touring teams. Virat Kohli and the whole team would love to dominate over the Aussies right from the word go. If Indian bowlers can contain the Australian aggression in batting, that would be like half battle won. As far as Indian batting line up is concerned, its currently the best in the world.

In the end, whoever wins, fans would surely be served with some great quality cricket. So sit back and relax, India vs Australia cricket series.

India vs Sri Lanka 2017 ODI and T20 Series

After a thumping win over Sri Lanka in the test series, the team moves on to limited overs affair in the island. Kohli's team is highly confident with a whitewash victory in test matches over Sri Lanka. With things not looking so encouraging for the home team, Lanka needs to create something unimaginable to clinch the ODI and T20 series. Change in format could bring fortunes to them.

Series and everything else after that

This isn't merely another series for Virat Kohi and team. It is all about gearing up for the next world cup which is just two years from now. Selectors have had a clear message to the likes of Dhoni that no one has a fixed place in the team. Virat has a similar stance for the team. Anyone and everyone has to prove the mettle and earn a berth in the team. With so much of young talent on bench, its a prosperous era of Indian cricket with no shortage of good cricketers ready to play for the nation.

Post this series, India plays the likes of Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, etc. With a challenging schedule ahead, Indian team management is in no mood to take any series lightly. This team has a strong batting line up. Past few years, the team has struggled with the bowling but now this department too looks well settled. Fielding standards have gone way up for India in last decade.

Way the team has considered the inclusion of KL Rahul in the team or sending out a clear message to Dhoni to stay consistent; it seems the serious preparation for 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup begins from now!

Coming back to this series, Sri Lankan squad doesn't really post a threat to the Indian team. But who knows? Limited overs cricket can swing anyway. A brave innings from a young Sri Lankan or an inspirational bowling spell from a Lankan bowler can not only clinch a match but the series too! That's the beauty of cricket.

Let's how easy or hard it gets for such a strong Indian batting line up. Leaving everything aside, won't it be fun to watch the likes of Rohit Sharma, Kohli, Dhoni, Hardik Pandya or Kuldeep Yadav wearing blue and providing some great performances? It's all available in this India vs Srilanka cricket series. Enjoy!

India's Tour To West Indies 2017 - Time to Capitalise for Both the Teams

India vs West Indies 2017 Cricket Series

Cricket moves on. From a colourful IPL to multi-team ICC Champions trophy, we now have bilateral series lined up. And this not only limits to the Indian cricket calendar but for all the teams. Just to update you guys, due to tight schedule of cricket teams involved in a lot of bilateral series, we won't be having 2018 T20 World Cup. The next big ICC event would be the 2019 ICC World Cup that would be held in England. Moving back to India's tour to West Indies, it's time for both the teams to capitalise and stabilise. West Indies haven't had too much of a good time against Afghanistan. India played well to reach the finals of Champions Trophy but they lost to Pakistan miserably in the finals. Time to revive!

Watch India vs West Indies 2017 Live Streaming

Cricket fans can watch India vs West Indies cricket series live streaming on Ten Sports HD network. The live telecast will be available in English and Hindi commentary.


Youngsters here to prove a point

This would certainly be a series for youngsters. Indian squad includes faces like Kuldeep Yadav and Rishabh Pant. At times when we feel tracks are too flat, likes of Jadeja and Ashwin could be ineffective. Here comes into picture someone like Kuldeep Yadav. One who can trouble the batsmen with some mystery deliveries. Rishabh Pant, the wicketkeeper batsmen has also proved his worth in the IPL.

For West Indies, its a good opportunity to turn fortunes. After two series losses at home, they have to pull up their sleeves and come up with path breaking performances. Likes of Jason Holder, Roston Chase, Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, etc can make a mark in this series.

India favourites but can't take things lightly

Indian team start as favourites. It is a tussle between a third ranked ODI side against a ninth ranked side. Still the visitors will have to be on their toes. Cricket serves lot of uncertainties. The match can turn towards any team within a span of few minutes. Virat Kohli would love to nail a white wash in West Indies.
