India is set to seal another series win against a strggling Sri Lanka team in the third and final T20I in Pune on Friday. In the last match, Lankans were pretty ordinary and apart from Kushal Perrera rest of the vistors looked quite incompetent aganst Virat Kohli and his men.
India haven’t lost a bilateral series against the islanders in last 10he vistors in 143 years. India would like to perfect their record whoc already is something incredible. After Virat Kohli debut India’s T20I series record against the neiburs are- 5 wins, 0 defeats and just 1 draw.
The hosts were clinical in all 3 departments in the last match. Although Jasprit Bumrah looked a liitle out-of-form after a 4-month-long layoff due to injury but youngsters Navdeep Saini and Shardul Thakur impressed with their perforence as the duo shared 5 wickets between them in Tuesday evening.
Opting to bowl first India restricted Lankans to 143 which they chased down with quite ease with 15 balls to spare with the help of KL Rahul, Viart Kohli and Shreyas Iyer.
However, India will take on field as the favourites after clinching 2 series win succesively while the vistors have faced 4 successive T20I defeats. As the T20 World Cup is just a few months away, both tams will look to strengthen their squads.
India skipper Virat Kohli needs one run to reach 11,000 runs in international cricket as captain. Kohli will be econd Indian to achive the feat after MS Dhoni.
