India vs Sri Lanka 1st T20I Live Scorecard Today Match
Among lots of T20 league cricket, now it’s time for a real clash as India vs Sri Lanka T20I series is set to start on January 5th, 2020. Both the teams are very well equipped with some of the best T20 specialists on the cricketing circuit today and the cricket fans will really have some amazing cricket to watch. The India vs Sri Lanka 1st T20I will be played amidst a full-house at Guwahati on January 5, 2020 as both the teams eye their first win in the New Year 2020.
India’s latest T20I stint was against West Indies at home where we saw some high-scoring games as India won the last T20I by 67 runs after posting 240 on the board. They will be playing under the captaincy of Virat Kohli as usual and he seems to be in great knick scoring 70 from just 29 balls in that last game against West Indies. They bring back Shikhar Dhawan for the upcoming series resting Rohit Sharma. KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson, and Manish Pandey will all be in the spotlight as far as Indian batting is concerned. On the bowling front, they have Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, and Shadul Thakur to rely on. Overall, it’s a strong bowling line and will give some challenge to the Sri Lankan batsmen in the 1st T20I.
Sri Lanka will be looking forward to lift themselves up after the series defeat in Australia. Despite they lost the series, they will certainly have a few positives to take from that event. They will have players like Kusal Mendis, Kusal Perera, Niroshan Dickwella, and Avishka Fernando to give them good starts up front. Perera scored 45-ball 57 in the last game while Oshada Fernando seems like a solid player in the order as he showed his strengths in the recently concluded test series against Pakistan. Bhanuka Rajapaksa can smack a few as well. As far as their bowling options are concerned, they will rely on Lasith Malinga, Lakshan Sandakan, Nuwan Pradeep and Lahiru Kumara who all seem to be in great form and have been their front-line bowlers for some time.
India will win the toss and will bat first.
There hasn’t been much of T20I cricket in Guwahati and we expect a good game of cricket. The batsmen will get support from the wicket and a high scoring affair is pretty much on the cards.
India won the game.
