SL vs IND India Tour of Sri Lanka 3rd T20I Match Preview:
After losing the first T20I brutally, the Sri Lankan team made a great comeback and beat India by 4 wickets in the second game to square the series at 1-1. The Indian squad was hit by a Covid-19 case (Krunal Pandya) which ended up pushing nearly 8 more members into isolation. India will be without them in the 3rd T20I as well. There were 4 debutants for India in the 2nd T20I.
In the second T20I match, Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to field. Coming to bat, India got a good start as the openers shared a 49-run partnership for the first wicket. After the first wicket fell, Devdutt Padikkal came in at no.3 and knocked 29 handy runs. But once his wicket fell, no other Indian batsmen looked comfortable enough to score runs.
At the end, India managed to put only 132 runs on the board for the loss of 4 wickets, Shikhar Dhawan was the top-scorer for the India as he went on to smash 40 runs for the team. Akila Dananjaya grabbed 2 vital wickets for Sri Lanka.
Coming to chase, Sri Lanka chased down the target in the final over of the match. Minod Bhanuka and Dhananjaya de Silva scored 36 runs and 40 runs respectively for the Sri Lankan team. Kuldeep Yadav took 2 wickets but the runs proved to be too less to defend for the Indian bowlers.
Dhananjaya de Silva was adjudged the man of the match for his match-winning knock (unbeaten 40 runs off 34 balls, 4s – 1, 6s – 1).
The 3-match series stands at 1-1 currently and that sets the decider to be an exciting contest with the series at stake. Considering India will once again be without their main players, Sri Lanka would be fairly salivating at the prospect of a series win.
Nevertheless India took the low scoring game till the last over with their exemplary bowling performance and would be hoping to push themselves a little more hard into the final game.
