Sri Lanka vs India 2021, 3rd T20I: Preview – Pitch Report, Playing Combination & Match Prediction

Sri Lanka will take on India in the third and final T20I of the three-match T20I series at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Thursday, July 29.

With Navdeep Saini suffering an injury towards the death overs of the match, India might have to pick one of their net bowlers for the series decider, with the other nine squad members unavailable for selection due to mandatory isolation.

With the series now levelled at 1-1 and India likely to be a batter short once more, the final T20I could make for a very thrilling encounter.

Pitch report

The surface at the R Premadasa Stadium has gradually slowed down, so winning the toss and batting first would be ideal. However, chasing cannot be a wrong choice either.

Probable XI of both teams

Sri Lanka: Avishka Fernando, Minod Bhanuka (wk), Dhananjaya de Silva, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Dasun Shanaka (c), Wanindu Hasaranga, Ramesh Mendis, Chamika Karunaratne, Isuru Udana, Dushmantha Chameera, and Akila Dananjaya.

India: Shikhar Dhawan (c), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson (wk), Nitish Rana, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Rahul Chahar, Navdeep Saini/Sandeep Warrier, Kuldeep Yadav, Chetan Sakaria, Varun Chakravarthy

Match Prediction

Case 1:

  • Sri Lanka win the toss and bat first
  • Powerplay score: 40-45
  • Total: 145-160

Case 2:

  • India win the toss and bat first
  • Powerplay score: 35-40
  • Total: 140-155

India to win the contest.

IPL 2021: 4 franchises looking to sign up Wanindu Hasaranga as a replacement player

Wanindu Hasaranga has been a notable performer for Sri Lanka in their rather dispiriting year. Despite his side’s embarrassing series defeat to West Indies, Bangladesh, England and India, the 24-year-old has shined with both bat and ball on several occasions.

IPL 2021: 4 franchises looking to sign up Wanindu Hasaranga as a replacement player

Wanindu Hasaranga has been a notable performer for Sri Lanka in their rather dispiriting year. Despite his side’s embarrassing series defeat to West Indies, Bangladesh, England and India, the 24-year-old has shined with both bat and ball on several occasions.

Hasaranga has scored 344 runs so far this year in 11 ODIs and claimed eight wickets at an impressive economy of 4.35. The right-hander has a sparkling record in T20Is ever since making his debut against New Zealand in 2019. He has an economy rate of 6.81, along with an impeccable bowling average of 16.13.

Sri Lankan legend Muttiah Muralitharan is confident that once Hasaranga plays in the IPL team, he would only flourish further.

“An IPL franchise should look at him [Hasaranga]. But the problem is, if it’s a local player, he walks into the side. But if it’s a foreign player, you have to see which franchise wants a foreign spinner. It’s a tricky thing. They will buy him, but playing him is something that will not be easy for a franchise. Some franchises look mostly at Indian spinners rather than foreign spinners,” Muralitharan was quoted as saying to ESPNcricinfo.

According to media reports, four IPL franchises are interested to rope in Hasaranga for the remainder of IPL 2021. All eight teams are allowed to sign players to replace those who won’t be travelling to the UAE for the marquee event.

If Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) grants Hasaranga permission to participate in the cash-rich league, he may be picked by one of the four teams who have expressed their interest to acquire his services.
