How India could line up for the third T20I against Sri Lanka
India continued their dominance over Sri Lanka, winning the second T20I comprehensively by 88 runs. Riding on Rohit Sharma's mind-boggling century, India posted a daunting score of 260 for 5 in 20 overs.
Sri Lanka failed to keep up with the required run-rate, and crumbled like a pack of cards. India have already won the T20I series and hence may ring the changes for the third game.
Here is the probable XI for Team India.
#1 Rohit Sharma
Rohit continued his destructive form and played a blazing knock of 118 runs in 42 deliveries. He has been in great touch this year, and has really led well from the front.
Rohit was proactive with his field settings and constantly backed the bowlers, even when they were going for plenty of runs. He would like to continue his scintillating form, and complete the whitewash of the Lankans.
#2 Lokesh Rahul
Rahul has been consistent in this series, scoring two half-centuries in two matches. He has looked determined right from the start, making the most of his opportunities. He has been cautious in his approach, and has waited for the bad balls to score off.
#3 Shreyas Iyer
Shreyas Iter has looked in good form right through the series, and would like to finish the series on a high. He has done pretty well in the absence of Virat Kohli, and would be itching to fulfil his potential. After seeing a glimpse of Shreyas Iyer's raw talent in ODIs, the team management would be more than happy to continue with him at no 3.
