India vs Sri Lanka 1st T20I Dream11 Predictions, Lineups and more

After a super successful series against the West Indies, the Indians are all set to host the Sri Lankans in a 3-match T20 series. The squad has undergone numerous changes, with Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant being rested, while Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja returning to action. Surya Kumar Yadav, the player of the series in the T20Is against the West Indies, is out with an injury. It’s a fantastic opportunity for the youngsters to seize with both hands.

Sri Lanka has not been in the best of forms, having lost 4-1 in the series against Australia, and while the single win was a good consolation, the Lankans will be looking for a change in fortune as they head to India to face one of their oldest rivals.

The first game is scheduled to be held on the 24th of February, 2022 at the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium, Lucknow.

India vs Sri Lanka 1st T20I – Pitch Report

To date, the Bharat Ratna Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Ekana Cricket Stadium has hosted only four Twenty20 Internationals. The wicket has pace and will aid the quicks for the duration of the match, despite the fact that the batter’s score runs freely. A score of more than 170 is considered good here.

India vs Sri Lanka 1st T20I – Players to Watch

Rohit Sharma

He was recently announced as the all-format captain of the Indian Team and that will definitely boost his confidence. Even in the tour against the West Indies, he was in sublime form and his opening stands have been very useful for his team. With home conditions working in his favour, we expect to see some big knocks from Rohit.

Jasprit Bumrah

The new vice-captain of the Indian T20 side, Jasprit is currently one of the best bowlers, not just in the lineup, but in the world. Since the pitch they are playing on has not been widely used, he will be looking to capitalise on the conditions and adapt his line and length to pick up those quick wickets.

Pathum Nissanka

He was perhaps the silver lining for the Sri Lankan side in their tour of Australia. He definitely has a bright career ahead of him and we expect to see him make the most of the free scoring track to pile on some runs for his team and himself.

Dasun Shanaka

The Sri Lankan All-Rounder is a very reliable player in the middle order and can perform with the bat and ball. Even against the Australians, Dasun was very good in his individual performance, and we expect to see him do much better in Indian conditions.
