While a clean sweep against mighty West Indies in ODI and T20 series boosts the confidence of Men in Blue, Sri Lanka had a disappointing series against Australia with 1-4. A win in the final game is a bit of relief to the Lankan side. Sri Lanka skipper Dasun Shanaka would love to continue the momentum from their last match while playing against India. Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant are rested for the T20 series but are included in the test squad. KL Rahul, Suryakumar Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Washington Sundar and Deepak Chahar are injured and will miss the series. However, players like Venkatesh Iyer, Ishaan Kishan and Ravi Bishnoi were in brilliant form in the Windies series is a relief to the team. For Sri Lanka, all eyes are on Chamika Karunaratne, Dushamantha Chameera, Pathum Nissanka and Maheesh Teekshana.
Indian bowling against Windies has been exceptional throughout the series in both formats. They have never allowed Windies power hitters to free their arms and always kept them under pressure by picking regular wickets. Experienced bowlers like Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja are back to the squad, which only strengthens their bowling lineup. India has an option to choose Siraj, Harshal Patel or Avesh Khan alongside pacer Bumrah.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee stadium in Lucknow will host the first T20 match and the remaining two matches will be held in Dharmashala. While Mohali hosts the first test match, the second test will be played at Bengaluru. Watch India vs Sri Lanka live on YuppTV and catch all the excitement.
