The Indian cricket team will face Sri Lanka in an ODI series set to start from July 18. The Indian cricket team has some of the best ODI batsmen in the world. Here is a list of 3 Indian cricketers who could amass the most runs against Sri Lanka:
3. Suryakumar Yadav
Suryakumar Yadav has been a consistent performer for MI in the IPL. In 7 matches in the 1st leg of the IPL this season, Suryakumar Yadav amassed a total of 173 runs for Mumbai Indians. Yadav also performed superbly for MI in the IPL last season. In 16 matches in IPL 2020, Suryakumar Yadav amassed a total of 480 runs for MI. Suryakumar’s exploits with the bat in the IPL earned him his maiden national call-up against England recently this year. Kumar will be one of India’s most crucial batsmen in the upcoming limited-overs series against Sri Lanka. There is a strong chance that Suryakumar Yadav could finish as India’s highest run-scorer against Sri Lanka.
2. Prithvi Shaw
Prithvi Shaw was in terrific form with Delhi Capitals in the 1st half of the IPL this season. In 8 matches in the 1st leg of IPL 2021, Prithvi Shaw scored a total of 308 runs for DC. The 20-year-old also maintained a terrific strike rate of 166.48 in the 1st half of the IPL this season. Prithvi Shaw is expected to deliver in a similar fashion for India against Sri Lanka.
1. Shikhar Dhawan
Shikhar Dhawan is one of India’s best batsmen in the limited-overs format. Dhawan was superb for DC in the 1st leg of the IPL this season. In just 8 matches in the 1st leg of the IPL this season, Shikhar Dhawan racked up an impressive 380 runs in total. It is highly likely that Dhawan will amass the most runs for Team India against Sri Lanka.
