Kohli and Pandey steer India to T20 win over Sri Lanka

Virat Kohli and co will play three T20s three ODIs and five Tests against England next summer

India will continue to look their dream run on Lankan soil when they take on the hosts in the lone T20 global at Colombo's Premadasa Stadium on Wednesday. In total, India would play nine T20I.

Jasprit Bumrah is a shoe-in of course, whilst it remains to be seen if Shardul Thakur will get another go after proving expensive in the last match at Bhuvneshwar Kumar's expense.

Vandersay had made an impression for Sri Lanka in the World T20 previous year, but suffered from injury issues since and hasn't been a regular feature of the side. Undoubtedly, with the current form, Sri Lankan cricket is in an uncommonly dark place. The latter was dismissed when he was caught by Upul Tharanga off Malinda Pushpakumara. Obviously, T20 is a format where any team can turn around. Australia won 3 Tests, 5 ODIs and one T20I. Hope they will play well at Premadasa Stadium in Colombo today (6 September 2017).

India's bid for a historic triple clean sweep over Sri Lanka could be spoilt by rain as the teams were getting ready to face in the lone Twenty20 global tonight (September 6). The rains forced both the teams to miss practice session on Tuesday. It is possible that one ball cannot be bowled in the only T20 match.

There seems to be no end to Sri Lanka's miseries.

With his astounding 82 runs against the Islanders in the final match of the tour, Kohli smashed his fourth consecutive fifty against Sri Lanka in the shortest format of the game. The visitors had also clinched the Test series by 3-0.

Sometimes bowling was considered as a weak link to Team India.

Upul Tharanga will lead Sri Lanka for the first time in T20Is after being appointed as full-time captain. Their win-loss ratio is the third-worst for teams playing five or more games at a home venue.

Newly included in the T20I squad, leg-spinner Jeffrey Vandersay, pacers Isuru Udana, Vikum Sanjaya and medium pacer Suranga Lakmal will look to destroy the Indian batting along with their spearhead bowler Lasith Malinga.

Yuzvendra Chahal claimed three wickets for 43 as India restricted Sri Lanka to 170.
