Sri Lanka vs India, 3rd T20I Match Preview:
The last match was a bit tricky for the batters since the pitch was slow and assisting spin. Sri Lanka would be glad to have gone over the line, courtesy of Dhananjaya De Silva and Minod Bhanuka. Apart from these two, Avishka Fernando is a key batter at the top who can push the scoring rate.
In every game, Wanindu Hasaranga contributes be it bowling, batting, or fielding. While it was Hasaranga’s bowling that set up the game, it was his batting that helped Sri Lanka finish the game as well.
India has all in all just five batters to play with. Yesterday, it was clear that batters weren’t trying to risk as much as they would have liked, and probably the same will happen in this match as well. There is a chance that management could try left-arm spinner Sai Kishore, who will not only add variation in the bowling department but can contribute with the bat as well.
If the pitch plays the same, then the Indian spinners will be a threat to Sri Lanka. Arshdeep Singh is also in line for his T20I debut.
Sri Lanka vs India, 3rd T20I Cricket Match Prediction:
