India and Sri Lanka take on each other in a three-match T20I series followed by a two-match Test series. The series kicks off with the first T20I in Lucknow. India head into the series as the top-ranked team in the ICC T20I rankings while Sri Lanka are languishing at the ninth spot.

Heading into the series, India whitewashed West Indies in ODIs and T20Is under Rohit Sharma. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, lost a T20I series against Australia 4-1. Both teams have injury concerns, however, India look like a more stronger team with the resources that they have.

For India. as far as their squad is concerned, Suryakumar Yadav and Deepak Chahar are ruled out of the series due to injury. Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant have been rested while Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja have returned to the side.

Sanju Samson has been given another opportunity to prove his credentials at the international level. With many options to choose from, the management should be spot on with the players that they would like to field in the first T20I.

In this article, we will take a look at India’s Predicted XI for the first T20I in Lucknow.

The Indian skipper will continue to open the batting in T20Is. He was in terrific form in the games that he played. Though he scored 78 runs in the ODI series and 66 runs in the T20I series it was his intent to score runs that stood out. In the pre-match presser, he spoke about knowing what he has to do with the team that he has got at his disposal heading into the T20 World Cup. His batting at the top will pretty much set the tone for India.
