Sri Lanka Preview

Although Sri Lanka have managed to put up the team’s highest score so far in the series, they couldn’t manage to defend that and lost the 2nd game of the series also. They will face hosts in the last game of the series to avoid whitewash on Sunday. Sri Lanka were invited to bat first in the last match. Sri Lankan batters started the inning with confidence and set up a 64 runs partnership for the first wicket. Pathum Nissanka played a constructive knock of 75 runs in 53 balls. Captain Dasun Shanaka launched an attack in the lower order to score not out 47 runs in just 19 balls. Sri Lankan batting unit has managed to put 183 runs on the board. 

The Bowling unit once again failed to put in more effort while defending this decent target. Sri Lanka’s skipper used 6 bowlers during that task but all conceded more than 8 runs per over. Lahiru Kumara picked up 2 wickets for 31 runs in his spell of 3 overs. But he couldn't save the defeat of his team. After performing well with the bat in the last match, the Sri Lankan team will now try to execute plans with the bowling unit when they face hosts in the last T20 game of the series at Dharamsala.

Key Players: Pathum Nissanka, Charith Asalanka, Dasun Shanaka, Dushmantha Chameera

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing XI:

Dasun Shanaka (c), Pathum Nissanka, Danushka Gunathilaka, Kamil Mishara, Dinesh Chandimal (wk), Charith Asalanka, Chamika Karunaratne, Binura Fernando, Dushmantha Chameera, Lahiru Kumara, Praveen Jayawickrama

Weather Conditions

The weather will be clear on Sunday with temperatures ranging between 13°C and 6°C. There are 5-7% chances of rain on the matchday. The stats clearly show that the pitch has favored bowlers in the second inning while defending totals, but the Indian team has managed to chase the target in the last game.

Venue Details

The last game of the T20I series will be played at Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamsala. A venue can accommodate 23,000 spectators.

Toss: To Bowl

Although in the last 5 games, the pitch has favored the batters, Indian batters have set a good example to handle pressure while chasing the target. Out of the last 5 games, the team who chose to bat first won 3 times whereas the chasing team has managed to win 2 times. The team winning the toss should opt to play the ball first here.

By looking at how team India played against West Indies and also currently against Sri Lanka in the last 2 games, they are in a comfortable position to whitewash Sri Lanka. The Indian batting as well as the bowling unit is performing way better than the Sri Lankan unit. Indian batting has depth and that is why they have an edge over Sri Lanka in the last match of the T20 series.

We predict that India will defeat Sri Lanka.
