The Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot will host the 3rd T20I, it has generally been a balanced surface over the years, and the spinners have proved to be very effective on this surface.
India went on snatch victory from the jaws of defeat in the first T20I against Sri Lanka at the Wankhede Stadium. The match went down to the wire but India held their nerve and got over the line. They lost the 2nd T20I, as the batting failed.
Hardik Pandya led the team to victory with Shivam Mavi being the star performer on debut in the first match, Mavi was slightly expensive in the next game, but he showcased his ability with bat in hand. Axar Patel and SKY were brilliant with the bat and got India back in the game but India fell short of the target.
Shubman Gill, Rahul Tripathi, and Hardik Pandya failed to live up to the expectations, they are raring to make their presence felt in this match.
The Sri Lankan, led by Dasun Shanaka was very impressive in the first T20I. Chasing 163, Sri Lanka could post 160, despite valiant efforts from skipper Dasun Shanaka and quick-fire cameos from Wanindu Hasaranga and Chamika Karunaratne. Sri Lanka put up another good performance in the 2nd T20I and this time, they got over the line.
Pathum Nissanka, Dhananjaya de Silva, Charith Asalanka, and Bhanuka Rajapaksa will need to do the bulk of the scoring. Meanwhile, their spinners did a fabulous job which is one of the reasons behind their success.
Hasaranga and Theekshana were the picks of the bowlers for Sri Lanka and they will be hoping to replicate the performance in the 2nd game as well. It’s a great opportunity for the Island Nation to get a series win over India today.
The 3rd T20I promises to be a mount-watering contest and with drama ready to unfold.
