IND vs SL: Best India Playing XI For The T20I Series (Predicted). Team India and Sri Lanka will play three ODIs and as many T20Is between December 2022 and January 2023. Team India is likely to host Sri Lanka for a white-ball series following the Bangladesh tour in December 2022. According to a report, both the South Asian nations will play three ODIs and as many T20Is between December 2022 and January 2023.
After the ongoing New Zealand tour comprising 3 T20Is (won by India 1-0) and 3 ODIs (New Zealand leading 1-0 after 2 ODIs), the Men in Blue will tour Bangladesh to play a white-ball ODI series followed by a Test series.
Notably, Indian selectors have announced the squad for ODI and Test series with Rohit Sharma trusted to lead the squad in both series. While Indian selectors have rested a few senior players from the New Zealand tour, the full-strength squad has been named against Bangladesh.
Meanwhile, In February 2022, Sri Lanka has already toured India. The Sri Lankan team played an all-format series against India in February-March 2022. The visitors got thrashed by the Indians in all formats of the game. India won the Test series 2-0 & T20I Series 3-0.
The Sri Lankan cricket board again wants to schedule a white ball tour. Meanwhile, so, the December-January window has been chosen for the Sri Lanka tour of India white ball games.
Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out of both ODI and Test series against Bangladesh. Ravindra Jadeja is currently recovering from his knee surgery. However, with a short turnaround for the Bangladesh Test series, he will miss out. Instead, he will prepare for a return in home series against Sri Lanka and New Zealand in January.
India are likely to be without the services of current T20I skipper Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, among others, in the next edition of 2024 T20I World Cup, which would make up for a highly new-look side.
Virat Kohli rediscovered his best and was one of the standout batters of the T20 World Cup 2022, but is likely to call it quits on the shortest version, given the workload management and key assignments in the other two formats, including the 2023 ODI World Cup at home.
India Predicted XI For Sri Lanka T20Is:- Ishan Kishan, Prithvi Shaw, KL Rahul, Sanju Samson, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Washington Sundar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh.

With the trio of Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, and Rohit Sharma probably retiring from T20Is in 2024, the gates may open for Ishan Kishan, who will face tough competition from Ruturaj Gaikwad, though for the opener’s slot.
Ishan Kishan has amassed 589 runs from 21 T20Is including 4 fifties. His highest score of 89 came against Sri Lanka in February 2022. His competitor Ruturaj Gaikwad hasn’t tasted much success in T20Is managing only 135 runs in 9 T20Is averaging a mere 16.88.
