India VS Srilanka Live Score
Triangular series in ODI are regular. But triangular series in T20’s is a new trend. We saw triangular T20 series between Kiwis, Australia and England in February. This series is between Srilanka, India and Bangladesh.
As usually, Rohit along with Dhawan wil open the batting. India will have a complete middle order. Like happened in South Africa series, Suresh Raina will come a t no3. Kl RahuL, who is an opener, will come at No4 in . Either of Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik has to sacrifice for keepers slot. Pant is foreseen as prospect o replace Dhoni in Future. if India wants to play safe, Pant will be included in last two games. Akshar Patel and Chahal will both get a chance considering that pitch will suit spinners.
Shradhul Thakur and Unakdat are likely to get a game ahead of Mohd Siraj, who is from Hyderabad. Rohit Sharma, who failed in series against Africa, will have to prove a point. Manish Pandey will be crucial in middle order.Indian bowling without Bhuvaneswar Kumar and Bumrah looks attenuated.
Srilanka lost the bileteral series played against India in Last December. But they have won a series away from their home in Bangladesh just before this tournament. Srilanka has kept hopes on Lakmal, Thisera Perera and Akhila Dhanunjaya. Allrounder Angelo Mathews unavailability is a big setback for Srilanka.
High scoring game is on.
Rohit to score fifty.
Akhila Dhanunjaya to take more than two wickets.
