Sri Lanka vs India – 3rd T20I – Betting Tips

Sri Lanka will face India in the third T20 International at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Thursday. 

The series is nicely poised at 1-1 going into the final encounter and both teams’ management will be hoping that the players will take this opportunity to showcase their talent at the big stage in a match where it will matter the most. 

Sri Lanka Form and Team news: 

After registering a memorable win in the second T20I, Sri Lanka are unlikely to make too many changes in the starting XI for the all-important encounter on Thursday. 

The team management will be pleased with the way players managed to get together and produce a much better display in the second fixture despite the uncertainty surrounding the contest. 

In the batting department, the home team will be heavily relying on the likes of in-form opening batter Avishka Fernando, wicketkeeper-batsman Minod Bhanuka, captain Dasun Shanaka, second game’s player of the match Dhananjaya de Silva and all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga to score the bulk of the runs in this series decider. 

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of right-arm fast-bowler Dushmantha Chameera, left-arm pacer Isuru Udana along with the spin trio of Akila Dananjaya, Hasaranga and Ramesh Mendis to produce the bulk of the wickets and restrict the visitors to a chasable total.

India Form and Team news: 

Team India’s final stages of the tour is being hampered with the circumstances due to coronavirus, where despite suffering a defeat in the second T20I, the team management will have no option but to field the same playing XI for the deciding fixture. 

The visiting head coach Rahul Dravid confirmed before the second T20I that there were only 11 players available to be selected for the remaining two matches of the series.

Eight players — Prithvi Shaw, Suryakumar Yadav, Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan, Yuzvendra Chahal, K Gowtham, and Deepak Chahar — were forced to isolate after being declared as close contacts of all-rounder Krunal Pandya who tested positive for Covid-19 on the morning of the second fixture. 

In such testing conditions, the Men-in-Blue will be heavily relying on their captain Shikhar Dhawan, wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson, young top-order batter Devdutt Padikkal and Ruturaj Gaikwad to do the bulk of the scoring.

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Navdeep Saini along with the spin duo of Rahul Chahar and Kuldeep Yadav to dismantle the home team’s batting lineup.

Our Tipsters Angle

After the first T20I, many would’ve predicted an easy series win for team India who looked too good for the home team in the opening fixture. 

However, circumstances changed completely with one positive case in India’s camp which left them with not many options for the all-important clash. 

Even though the second T20I went all the way down to the wire, Sri Lanka looked a far settled unit compared to their rivals. 

Therefore, the prediction is for the Islanders to secure a rare T20I series win on Thursday.

Tip 1- Sri Lanka to restrict India to less than 140 runs.

With Krunal Pandya, Yuzvendra Chahal, Prithvi Shaw and Deepak Chahar ruled out of the series decider due to covid-19, the home side will be confident of restricting India’s inexperienced batting lineup to below-par score. So we can expect Sri Lanka to restrict India to less than 140 runs in 3rd [email protected].

Tip 2- Dushmantha Chameera’s incredible consistency in the T20 format.

Medium-pacer Dushmantha Chameera has been standout bowler for Sri Lanka for the past couple of years. In the 2nd T20I, Chameera put in tidy bowling performance and finished with figures of 1 for 23 in his four overs.

Since Jul 2019, Chameera claimed 13 wickets in 8 innings at an average of 15.00 with an economy rate of 6.46. Given his splendid bowling performances in the first two matches, we can expect pacer Dushmantha Chameera to pick one wicket or more in this [email protected]


Expect Sri Lanka to beat India in the series decider and clinch the T20I series.
