Fantasy Cricket League Prediction | Tricks and Tricks for today’s match between IND vs SL 3rd T20 Dream11 Prediction
Considering the lack of experience in the Sri Lankan side and the dominating nature of India on home soil, very few were surprised by the results of the second T20I.
With the 1-0 series lead with them, all eyes will now be on Pune as India look to begin the new year by winning the series.
However, on an unpredictable and low scoring pitch, it would be anything but an easy sailing for either of the teams.
India will look to put away their memories on this ground the last time they Lankans. In the first innings, India were bundled home for 105 runs. However, they put a fightback by picking away the top-order. But it was too little too late.
With the ball, both Shardul Thakur and Navdeep Saini made impressive outings. In fact, Saini clocked 147.5 km/hr to crash Danushka Gunathilaka’s stumps. Jasprit Bumrah also had a decent return from injury as he picked up 1 wicket. Kuldeep Yadav also picked 2 wickets despite having an expensive spell.
If the Lankans need anything from tomorrow’s game, the top-order will need to bat deep. Gunathilaka, Fernando, and Perera all started well but could not stick around for a longer time. Their bowling unit was also torn apart by the Indian top-order, especially by Virat Kohli in the end.
Malinga will need to stand apart and inspire with a better bowling performance than last matches 0/41. Wanindu Hasaranga and Kumara picked up wickets but will need support from Isuru Udana and spinners.

Rishabh Pant (WK), Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Danushka Gunathilaka, Avishka Fernando, Shivam Dube, Isuru Udana, Jasprit Bumrah, Navdeep Saini, Shradul Thakur, Wanindu Hasaranga
India are the undoubted favourites to win this contest against Sri Lanka. The Men in Blue, on the other hand, have been ruthless at home in the recent while. Barring the drawn series against South Africa, they have managed to win every single T20I series played on home soil.
Despite the absence of Rohit Sharma, the batting order has enough firepower to score or chase down 200+ scores any given day. Jasprit Bumrah returned back to fitness and showed glimpses of his best bowling. He will join an inform Navdeep Saini and Shardul Thakur.
Predicted Winner: India
