Colombo, July 24: After winning the ODI series 2-1, India will take on Sri Lanka in the three-match T20I series from Sunday (July 25). The first T20I will be played at the R Premadasa Stadium here.
India will confident after a fine ODI series win under Shikhar Dhawan, while Sri Lanka will be eager to cash in and carry the momentum from their victory in the third ODI, though an inconsequential one.
India had handed debuts to six players in the third ODI, an experiment that did not bring the desired result as Lanka notched up a consolation win. In that event, India might bring back a few first-choice players like vice-captain Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Ishan Kishan etc.
