In the third and final T20I match of the series on Saturday, India will try to make up for their mistakes and defeat Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka and India tied the three-match series 1-1, with India losing by 16 runs after winning the first match by a whisker in the final ball. The inconsistent nature of a young attack was one factor in the defeat.
In this three-match T20I series, India and Sri Lanka have both won one game each in their two matches against one another. The series is currently 1-1. India was defeated by 16 runs in the second T20I match by Sri Lanka. India chose to field first after winning the toss during that match. Kusal Mendis and Dasun Shanaka scored 52 and 56 runs, respectively, for Sri Lanka, who had 206 runs in their first innings of play.
India’s Umran Malik took three wickets. It is highly unlikely that any personnel changes will be made for the series finale, as India’s head coach Dravid stated, “We are not going to be chopping and changing people too much.” It is anticipated that Rajkot will be a batting belter because it is one of the nation’s flattest playing fields. Since both captains want to chase, the toss may be crucial.
The third Twenty20 International between India and Sri Lanka will begin on Saturday, January 7. The Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot will host the third Twenty20 International between India and Sri Lanka. The third T20I between India and Sri Lanka will begin at 7 p.m. IST. At 6.30 p.m. IST, the toss is scheduled to take place.
The T20 series between India and Sri Lanka will be streamed live in India via the Disney+Hotstar app and website. Matches will also be broadcast live by Star Sports Network and Doordarshan Sports (DD Sports).
