India vs Sri Lanka 2020: 3 Indian players to watch out for
India will begin 2020 with a three-match T20I series against neighbours Sri Lanka. The two Asian nations will lock horns in a short T20I series from January 5th to January 10th. 2019 was a great year for Indian cricket, and the Men in Blue would want to ensure that they start 2020 on a positive note with a series victory over the Sri Lankans.
Vice-captain Rohit Sharma gets a much deserved break for the Sri Lanka series, and will return for the subsequent limited overs series against Australia. On the other hand, Shikhar Dhawan and Jasprit Bumrah make their return to the squad for India's first limited overs assignment of 2020.
Even with Rohit not playing the series, India are still a strong outfit and it will take something special for Sri Lanka to upset Kohli and company at home.
With that being said, let us look at three Indian players to watch out for in the series.
#3 Jasprit Bumrah
It goes without saying that Jasprit Bumrah is India’s best bowler in limited overs cricket. The 26-year-old pace sensation returns to the squad after missing out on the second half of 2019 due to a stress fracture to his lower back. Bumrah’s lanky and quick action, his ability to mix toe crushing yorkers with sharp and well-directed bouncers makes him an asset for the Indian side.

Kohli without any doubt, will once again turn to Bumrah to weave magic with the ball. Bumrah is one bowler who can rip through any batting line-up, and the pace spearhead will definitely be the trump card for the Indian side in the T20I series.
