 Key Players: 

 IND Key Players: 

 Virat Kohli: 
Passed 1,000 T20i runs in India last time out – the first Indian batsman to do so – while he has 2,633 in T20i cricket in total. Against West Indies, he scored 94*, 19 and 70* and his T20i average now sits at 52.66 with 24 half-centuries to his name.

KL Rahul: 
Hit scores of 62 and 91 in India’s two wins against West Indies in their most recent T20i series. He averages 43.76 in T20i cricket with a strike rate of 146.46.

Jasprit Bumrah: 
The fit-again paceman has taken 51 wickets in his 42 previous T20 internationals but more impressive is his economy rate – conceding just 6.71 runs per over.

 SL Key Players: 

Lasith Malinga:
While his T20i captaincy record for Sri Lanka in 2019 was not good, he remains one of the best death bowlers in world cricket and he boasts 387 wickets in 284 T20 innings.

 Kusal Perera:
Hit a half-century in his most recent T20i innings for Sri Lanka, and continued his good batting form with some useful scores for Delhi Bulls in the Abu Dhabi T10 League.

Angelo Mathews:
The former captain will bolster the batting line-up as he looks to provide some impetus at the tail-end of the innings, while he might also be fit again to bowl – he has a useful T20i economy rate.

 Team Forms: 


India are looking to build on series wins against Bangladesh and West Indies. They came from behind to beat the former, while Virat Kohli and KL Rahul starred with the bat in their two wins against West Indies – albeit they suffered defeat in the second game of that series.

 Sri Lanka: 

Sri Lanka won all three matches they played in Pakistan despite being without the majority of their experienced stars. When their regulars returned for their tour of Australia, however, their fortunes reversed – suffering three heavy defeats on the road. They posted 99/9 in reply to 233/2 in the first game, which set the tone, before being bowled out for 117 in a nine-wicket defeat in the second and then being unable to defend 142/6 in the third. 

INDIA: Virat Kohli (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Shivam Dube, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Navdeep Saini, Shardul Thakur, Manish Pandey, Washington Sundar, Sanju Samson.

SRI LANKA: Lasith Malinga (captain), D Gunathilaka, A Fernando, A Mathews, D Shanaka, K Perera, N Dickwella, Dhananjaya De Silva, I Udana, B Rajapaksa, O Fernando, W Hasaranga, L Kumara, K Mendis, L Sandakan, K Rajitha.
