Head to Head


India have won their last three T20I against Sri Lanka. The last of those victories came in February 2022 where India won by six wickets.

India Recent Form


This is a crunch game for India after they lost their opening Super 4 game to Pakistan last time out.

Virat Kohli scored 60 runs in a 181-run total in Dubai. There were smaller contributions from Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul as well.

Poor fielding however cost them dearly in the end as Pakistan won by five wickets off the penultimate ball of the match.

India Team News


India won’t make knee-jerk changes as the side has performed well. It is however a must-win game if they are to compete for the Asia Cup.

Sri Lanka Recent Form


After making a poor start to the Asia Cup, Sri Lanka have bounced back magnificently. They beat Bangladesh to reach the Super 4 and then defeated Afghanistan in the Super 4 opener, revenging their opening match loss.

Afghanistan scored a strong 175 runs batting first in Sharjah. The pick of the Sri Lanka bowlers was Dilshan Madushanka who took 2-36.

Sri Lanka started well with Pathum Nissanka scoring 35 and Kusal Mendis 36 runs. Bahnuka Rajapaksa batted superbly for 31 off 14 balls to see Sri Lanka win by four wickets with five balls to spare.

Sri Lanka Team News


Sri Lanka are in fine form and are likely to stick with the same lineup.

Verdict

I am backing India to win with Virat Kohli tipped to top score. For Sri Lanka, Kusal Mendis has been in fine form as well, he can be looked at in the best Sri Lanka batsman market.
