Colombo, July 24 (MNN) After a 2-1 victory in the ODIs, India is all set to take on Sri Lanka in the three-match T20I series, with both sides eyeing the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 in UAE and Oman.

All T20I matches will also be played at the R Premadasa International Cricket Stadium here. Sunday’s match starts at 8 pm local time. The other two T20I would be played on July 27 and 29.

Despite a defeat in the final ODI against Sri Lanka, India’s confidence to out-perform Sri Lanka in the T20Is would not have be dented as the visitors fought back from a difficult position to ensure the hosts had to fight for their three-wicket victory on Friday.

For Sri Lanka, Avishka Fernando and Charith Asalanka found form with the bat while the bowlers put up an improved display consistently in the final two ODIs.

The spinners, Wanindu Hasaranga and Akila Dananjaya in particular, made the Indian batters struggle in Colombo, and they’ll be looking to take that form into the shortest format.

India’s squad: Shikhar Dhawan (Captain), Prithvi Shaw, Devdutt Padikkal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Suryakumar Yadav, Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, Nitish Rana, Ishan Kishan (Wicket-keeper), Sanju Samson (Wicket-keeper), Yuzvendra Chahal, Rahul Chahar, K Gowtham, Krunal Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Varun Chakravarthy, Bhuvneshwar Kumar (Vice-captain), Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini, Chetan Sakariya
