India and Sri Lanka will collide in the third T20I of the three-match T20I series at Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune. We will provide IND vs SL Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
Team India will be eager to begin the year 2020 with a T20 series win to their and continue its good international form ahead when they compete with neighbors Sri Lanka tomorrow.
In the 2nd T20I, India won the toss and chose to field. In the beginning, Indian bowlers gave away runs, but in the 5th over Washington, Sunder provided the breakthrough by picking up the wicket of Avishka Fernando, who scored 22 runs from 16 balls. After that, Indian bowlers never allowed the Srilankan batsmen to make a significant partnership and picked up wickets at regular intervals. In the 18th over, Shardul Thakur bowled brilliantly and picked up 3 wickets in a single over. Navdeep Saini also bowled well and picked up 2 wickets for just 18 runs in his 3 overs. Kuldeep Yadav managed to pick up 2 wickets. Jasprit Bumrah and Washington Sundar picked up 1 wicket each. Kusal Perera 34 runs from 28 balls, and Avishka Fernando 22 runs were the top scorers for Srilanka. They managed to post a total of 142 runs in 20 overs.
With 143 runs to chase and with the batting line up that Indian team has, it looked like an easy chase on the batting surface. India started their innings well and added 71 runs to the 1st wicket, and then KL Rahul got out after scoring 45 runs from 32 balls. Shikhar Dhawan, after scoring 32 runs, got out in the 12th over. But Shreyas Iyer and Virat Kohli batted sensibly by scoring 34 and 30* runs respectively and ensured that India won the match comfortably by 7 wickets in just 17.3 overs.
Hasaranga bowled well and picked up 2 wickets, and Lahiru Kumara managed to pick up 1 wicket. No other Srilankan bowler looked competent in the last T20I.
As the 1st ODI was washed out both the teams would be aiming to win the 3rd T20I because a win for India will give them the series win and they would start 2020 on a winning note and Srilanka would want to win this series to draw the series and do not lose their 1st T20 series in 2020.

Top picks for IND vs SL Dream11 Team Prediction
Virat Kohli: One of the world’s best batsmen Virat will bat at one down and can destroy any bowling line-up if he is set and gets going. In the last match, he scored 30 runs from 17 balls. He will be a must-pick in SL vs IND Dream11 team.
Lokesh Rahul: He is in excellent form and played match-winning knocks in the last series against Windies and has continued the form in this series by scoring 45 runs from 32 balls in the previous match. He can be a right choice of captain in mini grand leagues.
Shikhar Dhawan: In the absence of Rohit, Shikhar will open alongside Rahul and will be eager to score plenty of runs to confirm his slot at the top. In the last match, he played a decent inning of 32 runs from 29 balls.
Jasprit Bumrah: Yorker King Bumrah returns from injury and can destroy Sri Lanka batting line-up single-handedly. In the last match, he was able to pick up only 1 wicket in his 4 overs. He can be tried as vice-captain if India bowls first.
Shreyas Iyer: He is a consistent performer and stays in good form. He can be a good punt in your team if openers fail. In the last match, he batted at number 3 and scored 34 runs from 26 balls.
Rishabh Pant: He is an attacking batsman and can lay havoc on his day. However, He lacks consistency at the international level. In the last match, he got to bat only one ball, and he scored 1* run.
Kuldeep Yadav: He has the wicket-taking ability and can be a good pick in your fantasy team. He picked up 2 wickets but gave away 38 runs in his 4 overs.
Navdeep Saini: Pacer Saini has immense talent and can outplay batsmen with his pace and bounce. He performed well in the last match by picking up 2 wickets for just 18 runs in his 4 overs.
He has a right-arm medium-fast bowler and has been performing really well recently. Thakur managed to pick up 3 wickets in the last match and also can hit some big shot if required down the order.
He is a young right-arm off-break bowler who bowls well especially in the power play. Washington Sundar can also hit some big shots down the order. He picked up 1 wicket for 29 runs in the last match.
Gunathilaka is good at opening batsmen and scores at a reasonable strike rate. He played a decent inning in the last match and scored 20 runs from 21 balls.
He is one of the best bowlers in T20I format and can be lethal in initial as well as death overs. If Sri Lanka wants to restrict Indian batsmen, then Malinga needs to fire. In the last match, he gave away 41 runs from his 4 overs and went wicketless.
He is a very attacking player and can anchor big innings. Kusal Perera will bat in the middle order and can be the right choice of captain in grand leagues. He scored 34 runs in the previous match and was the highest scorer for his team.
He is a talented youngster and plays at an attacking strike rate. He can score plenty of runs in batting-friendly pitches. Fernando scored 10 runs in the previous match.
Bhanuka Rajapaksa: He is averaging 32.75 in five international T20I’s till now and also performed well during BPL 2019. He was able to score only 9 runs in 12 balls in the last match.
Shanaka can score quick runs with the bat for the team and can also bowl a few overs of medium pace. He is in good form recently and also led the team during the Pakistan tour. He was able to score only 7 runs in the previous match.
Dhananjaya De Silva: Spin all-rounder Silva has good potential with bat and ball. He has also performed well recently in longer formats but is yet to prove his caliber in the T20 format. He batted well in the last match by scoring 17 runs in 13 balls and bowled 2 overs and gave away 15 runs but went wicketless.
He is a right-arm leg-break bowler and bowled well in the last match and picked up wickets of KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan and he scored 16 runs from 10 balls in the previous game.
He is one of the senior players and a very good all-rounder in the Srilankan team. But he has not been in form lately in the ODI’s or tests and will be playing the International T20 match after nearly 16 months. If he gets in form then he can equally contribute with bat and ball.
