India has not lost a T20 series at home since 2019. Sri Lanka though will believe they can snap the streak now. They ran India very close in the first game and comfortably won the second to exert their presence as they seek their first T20I series win in India.

The Weather at Rajkot is fine but with the game being played in the evening dew will definitely be a concern.

The boundaries at Rajkot are a lot bigger. The pitch though is as flat as a highway on most cases and a run-fest is likely.

IND vs SL Key Players

Ishan Kishan

With new openers being rotated Ishan Kishan will be getting a longer run in the team. He has a double hundred behind him but will want to prove that he is more than a one innings wonder as he looks to build a consistent set of scores to help settle himself in the Indian white-ball setup.

Bhanuka Rajapaksha

Bhanuka Rajapaksha’s numbers are consistently falling after a dream period during the Asia Cup. He is a very important part of the middle-order for Sri Lanka with his aggression and intent, but the returns are just not promising enough.

IND vs SL Match Tips

The series is evenly poised with India and Sri Lanka even. Sri Lanka though will feel the happier side having come close in the first game and dominating the second. India though knows how to handle pressure and despite Sri Lanka showing a lot of fight, India could come in as favorites.
