Updated on: Jul 29, 2021 2:34 pm IST
SL vs IND Dream11: Sri Lanka are very much alive in the three-match series, as they beat India by four-wickets in the second T20I. The hosts will be fancying their chances of a series win, as eight players from the Indian squad are in isolation due to COVID 19 Protocols. The likes of Krunal Pandya, Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Chahar, Ishan Kishan, Prithvi Shaw, Manish Pandey, and Yuzvendra Chahal were ruled out of the previous match and will be on the sidelines yet again.
Nevertheless, the Men in Blue did put in a fighting display while defending a below par score, and could take further inspiration from it. Here are a few key players from the camps of Sri Lanka and India that could make a major difference in the third and final T20I.

The Indian captain did play valuable knocks of 46 and 40 in the two T20Is, but will be wanted to stay a little while longer in the crease this time around.

Having featured in 67 T20Is for India, Dhawan has scored 1759 runs so far.
