IND vs SL 1st T20I will be played on 3rd January 2023 in Wankhede Stadium. Hardik Pandya will continue to lead the T20I side and Team India has started preparing for the T20 World Cup 2024 as well. Team India will be playing with a completely new Squad as compared to the recent T20 World Cup 2022.
Sri Lanka who outplayed team India in their last T20I meeting during Asia Cup 2022 will be high on confidence against the hosts. For India, the major focus will be on the opening partner of Ishan Kishan either Shubman Gill or Ruturaj Gaikwad. Ruturaj is looking very confident after a successful domestic season, especially in the recent Vijay Hazare Trophy. But, Shubman Gill is another strong contender to open up the innings as well who has also more experience than Ruturaj in international matches while opening.
Head to Heads:
So far, Both teams have met each other 99 times in the Test format out of which Australia won 53 matches, South Africa has won 26 games so far, and 20 matches were drawn.
