Editor's Pick (T20): India - Sri Lanka


Test series draw. ODI Series won. Next is the T20. Starting today, we have three T20 matches coming up. And then we meet South Africa. Lots of exciting cricket coming up. And for those playing on our app. Wait and see.

Back to the T20. Uncapped players are in the game. With IPL experience backing them up, they are good and raring to go. Sometimes weddings and babies being born have more positive advantages. The ones who normally do not get the chance to get onto the international platform and represent the country now have a bright chance. It is up to them to use this effectively and efficiently. Scoring high and making a mark will make them first choice and not a backup.

The match is being played at Cuttack. Good venue. Packed stadium. Electric atmosphere. And Dhoni. All the good makings of a fantastic match ahead. New faces. KL Rahul. Manish Pandey. And then we have Washington Sundar. He made a big mark in the TNPL. Basil Thampi too. We need to bring in fresh blood. Especially if we are preparing not just for the upcoming South Africa Series but the World Cup as well. With Dhoni still in the team, the ‘rookies’ can learn a lot.

Now it is up to the selectors to make good choices and give everyone a fair chance. Which is quite hard I must say considering the platter.

The Pitch - good batting surface. Team winning toss will want to defend a big score. Dew will be in. But nothing to worry about. Fairly cool December weather. This pitch has seen India fall miserably scoring only 92 runs. It has also seen an aggregate of 700 runs. It can go either way.
News - Bhuvneshwar Kumar not in. KL Rahul’s big day. No Suranga Lakmal and Lahiru Thirimanne either. Will Sadeera also be axed? Dasun Shanaka and Vishwa Fernando in.

India Probable XI: Rohit Sharma (C), KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Dinesh Karthik, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni (WK), Hardik Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Jaydev Unadkat/Mohammed Siraj

Sri Lanka Probable XI: Upul Tharanga, Danushka Gunathilaka, Angelo Mathews, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Asela Gunaratne, Dasun Shanaka, Thisara Perera (C), Sachith Pathirana, Akila Dananjaya, Nuwan Pradeep, Vishwa Fernando
