Team India are all set to take on Sri Lanka in the 5 match ODI series beginning tomorrow at Dambulla. Virat Kohli would be raring to lead Team India at a place he debuted almost 9 years ago. (18th August 2008 to be precise.) That time he played as a makeshift opener as both Sir Sachin and the dangerous Sehwag were injured. This time he is playing as the ‘CAPTAIN” of the ‘INDIAN CRICKET TEAM” and there can be no bigger motivation than this for Virat Kohli to not take this lightly. Not that he usually does but just saying…
On the other hand we have the former and one of the most successful Indian Captains in Mahendra Singh Dhoni who would try his best to prove his critics wrong and let the bat do the talking like it has been since a dozen of years.
The selectors have made it clear that fitness is the only ticket to the 2019 World cup and Dhoni is eager to do what he does the best- Train Hard,Play Hard- After a break post the recently concluded champions trophy.
Here is a video of Dhoni sweating it out…

Cric Crak feels with the form India is in it would be very difficult for Sri Lanka to get past them. On the other hand if Sri Lanka do not manage to win at least 2 games ,they might need to play the World Cup 2019 qualifiers and might not be an automatic qualification with a chance to WI overtaking them.
