Sri Lanka will hope to strike a balance between youth and experience and draw the series in the third and final T20I against India in Pune on Friday, 10 January.
One match abandoned, one won, India will be confident when they face Sri Lanka in Pune. They will be particularly happy with the performance of their bowlers in the second match, finding in Navdeep Saini and Shardul Thakur the back-up seam options for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup later this year.
There is also Washington Sundar, who has time and again proved with his all-round skills his importance in this diverse Indian side.
If anything, the hosts have a problem of plenty and with such talent at their disposal, will be keen on making a statement by sweeping the series 2-0.
