Sri Lanka have been one of India’s favourite punching bags over the last two-and-a-half years or so across all formats.
On Friday, India find themselves with another opportunity to pile on the agony for Sri Lanka by bossing their way to one more series victory over the visitors and their first of 2020. The two sides will clash in the third and final T20I at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune.
After the first T20I turned out to be a no-result, India dominated most part of the second game and cruised their way to a comfortable seven-wicket victory. The good sign for India — and equally ominous for Sri Lanka — is the ease with which Virat Kohli and Co. sealed the match. In other words, they broke little sweat the other evening in Indore.
