India will aim for a whitewash when they lock horns with Sri Lanka in the final T20I encounter of the three-match series today.
The match is due to get underway at 7pm. The hosts’ display of batting have helped them clinch the series 2-0 with a seven-wicket triumph in Dharamsala yesterday.
Sri Lanka isn’t in the best of form especially in the shortest format, as they’ve won just one of their last six T20I games and would want to add one more before moving to the Test-leg of the tour.
Going into the third T20I, the team may replace Kamil Mishara with Niroshan Dickwella, while relying on the experience of Pathum Nissanka, Dasun Shanaka, and Charith Asalanka for the runs.
The likes of Dushmantha Chameera, Lahiru Kumara, and Binura Fernando will continue to be the wicket takers.
India, on the other hand, produced another commanding victory by seven-wickets in the second T20I.
While the openers Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan got out early, the rest of the players lived up to the expectations.
With the series in hand, the Men in Blue may make a couple of changes in their Playing XI, with pacer Mohammed Siraj and spinner Ravi Bishnoi replacing Harshal Patel and Yuzvendra Chahal.
However, the onus will be on the skipper Sharma, Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, and Sanju Samson to score runs.
