India will attempt to correct their errors and defeat Sri Lanka in Saturday’s third and final T20I match of the series. The three-match series between Sri Lanka and India ended in a tie of 1-1, with India losing by 16 runs after winning the first match by a whisker in the last ball. One factor in the defeat was a young attack’s inconsistent nature.
India and Sri Lanka have both won one game each in their two matches against one another in this three-match T20I series. At the moment, the series is 1-1. Sri Lanka defeated India by 16 runs in the second Twenty20 International. India won the toss and decided to field first in that match.
Sri Lanka had 206 runs scored in their first innings of play, and Kusal Mendis and Dasun Shanaka each scored 52 and 56 runs. Umran Malik of India took three wickets. As India’s head coach Dravid stated, “We are not going to be chopping and changing people too much,” it is highly unlikely that any personnel changes will be made for the series finale.
Because Rajkot is one of the flattest playing fields in the country, it is anticipated that it will be a batting belter. The toss could be crucial because both captains want to chase.
On Saturday, January 7, the third Twenty20 International between India and Sri Lanka will begin. The third Twenty20 International between India and Sri Lanka will take place at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot.
At 7 p.m. IST, India, and Sri Lanka will begin the third Twenty20 International. The toss is scheduled to take place at 6.30 p.m. IST.
