SL vs IND Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips for 3rd T20I Match, India tour of Sri Lanka, 2021.

Sri Lanka will play against India in the 3rd T20I on 29th July 2021. We will cover Sri Lanka vs India Dream11 Prediction.

SL vs IND 3rd T20I Match Preview

Sri Lanka:

Sri Lanka has made a comeback in the series as they won the thriller in the last match and leveled the series by 1-1. Avishka Fernando has been decent but has not played a big inning, and his partner Minod Bhanuka has been slow in his approach. Dhananjaya de Silva played a sensible inning, and Karunaratne supported him by scoring quick runs and lead the team to victory.

The bowlers continued their dominance in the series as they did not allow the Indian batsman to score freely. Hasaranga and Chameera have been the consistent wicket-takers for SL. Akhila Dananjaya managed to pick up two wickets in the last match. Sri Lanka has the perfect opportunity to win this series as most Indian players are in isolation, and SL has better players.


India has been unfortunate as Krunal Pandya tested positive for Covid, and almost eight members had to be isolated and will be missing the final T20I. Shikhar Dhawan has been brilliant in both the matches but unlucky to miss his fifties. Both debutants, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devdutt Padikkal batted well but need to show more patience.

The middle-order is very weak, and there are no proper batsmen except for Nitish Rana. All the bowlers are inexperienced except for Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Kuldeep Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and Varun Chakravarthy have picked up wickets consistently. Rahul Chahar and Chetan Sakariya also impressed everyone with their performance in the last match. The Indian team does not look strong on paper, but they have played IPL to expect a tough fight from the group.

Sanju Samson:

He is a very talented wicketkeeper-batsman but has not been able to prove himself on the International stage. If Samson gets going, he can play a big inning.

Charith Asalanka: (If plays)

Asalnka can change gears ideally, like building the innings and also finishes the innings for the team.
