India Set To Clash With Sri Lanka In First T20 Match


Mumbai: A young Indian side is all set to take on Sri Lanka in the first T20 match at the iconic Wankhede Stadium on Tuesday.

India is looking to build a new and fresh T20 side under the leadership of all-rounder Hardik Pandya along with in-form batsman Suryakumar Yadav.

The team includes some of the vital performers of the T20 World Cup campaign including Arshdeep Singh, and Suryakumar Yadav. Players like Rahul Tripathi, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Umran Malik and Mukesh Kumar are likely to play in the upcoming games.

Hardik Pandya while speaking ahead of the match added that “ Obviously the plans are set. We are looking forward to playing the way we did. Before the IPL only six games are there. So, we don’t have much time to do a lot of things but going forward we will keep creating new plans and see which are the plans we will be sticking,”.

Sri Lanka on the other hand will be looking to continue with a balanced T20 side which led them to an ultimate Asia Cup victory.

Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanka underlined the importance of the T20I and ODI series against India, citing it as good exposure for players before the ODI World Cup.

He said that “ T20I and ODI series are very important keeping in mind the World Cup this year since most of the guys haven’t played in India. It’s the first tour of many of the youngsters who are playing in the national side so knowing the situations of the ground, it’s going to be a very important series.”
