  • Sri Lanka vs India Dream11: Top 5 Fantasy Cricket Picks 3rd T20I

    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.

    Shikhar Dhawan 

    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. The Indian batting lineup isn’t as stacked as it was earlier, but Shikhar Dhawan does have the ability to score big runs at a quick rate. Having featured in 67 T20Is for India, Dhawan has scored 1759 runs so far.

    Dhananjaya de Silva

    Dhananjaya de Silva put in shift in the second T20I and scored a match winning knock of 40* from 34 deliveries on a challenging wicket.  Dhanajaya is a utility player and can contribute on both ends. The 29-yer-old has struck two fifties from 19 T20Is for Sri Lanka, and has also picked up five wickets through his off-spin.

    Kuldeep Yadav 

    The left-arm-wrist spinner did impress in the second T20I by picking up two wickets for 30 runs in his four overs. Though on the losing side, Kuldeep Yadav will take much needed confidence from that recent performance and can pose a threat here to the Lankans. Yadav, having featured in 22 T20Is, has scalped 41 wickets for Team India.
