Nidahas Trophy: Ind vs Sri, T20I Preview

After a dominating win against Bangladesh, India look for revenge from Srilanka. Meanwhile Srilanka look to regain their way back to winning path after a close loss against Bangladesh. Now all the three teams are on same points with Srilanka topping the tally currently on the badis of net run rate and with at 2nd and Bangladesh at 3rd. So far the full house has been seen on the day when Srilanka played the match and with half of the series still left, the upcoming week might interest people to come in large no.’s for the match that do not include the host.

Pitch Conditions:

So, far we have seen three kinds of pitch in 3 matches, with both matches including Srilanka were high scoring and the match between India and Bangladesh was a low scorer. The pitch has behaved differently in all the matches, so it is difficult to quote anything about the surface but surely it will be a sporting one.


Just In: Srilankan Stand In Captain Dinesh Chandimal has been banned for 2 T20I matches due to slow over-rate.


Still Rohit’s form is a big concern and he should play at 4 and test himself at that slot and KL.Rahul is likely to grab the top spot with Hooda getting his maiden Cap on expense of Rishabh Pant and Manish Pandey is likely to be rested due to hectic umpcoming schedule.

Playing XI

KL.Rahul, Dhawan, Raina, Rohit(C), Hooda, DK(Wk), Sundar, Shankar, Chahal, Unadkat, Shardul


One forced change Lakmal in for banned Chandimal. Thisara Perera is likely to lead the side in absence of Chandimal

Playing XI

Kusal Mendis, K.Perera(Wk), Gunathilka, Tharanga, Shanaka, T.Perera(C), Pardeep, Chameera, J.Mendis, Danajaya, Lakmal
