Toss delayed due to rain; Virat Kohli eyes 9-0 clean sweep

Toss delayed due to rain; Virat Kohli eyes 9-0 clean sweep

Sri Lanka has invited Petronet LNG to set up a liquid gas import terminal in that country, marking a major success for the Narendra Modi government's energy diplomacy and signalling India's emergence as a gas bridge for South Asia. He also is the third highest T20 scorer, behind McCullum and Sri Lanka's Tilakratne Dilshan.

Pacers Vishwa Fernando and Dushmantha Chameera have also been left out after unimpressive showings in the recently concluded ODI series. However leg-spin proved to be his nemesis once again and this time it was the conventional leg-spin of Seekkuge Prasanna, and he had Dasun Shanaka to thank.

Vandersay had made an impression for Sri Lanka in the World T20 previous year, but suffered from injury issues since and hasn't been a regular feature of the side.

Based on unconfirmed and unsubstantiated informations it was further reported that, "According to information reaching the police here, the Sri Lankan navy personnel chased away the fishermen after warning them of severe consequences". Obviously, T20 is a format where any team can turn around.

Series: This one-off T20I is the last match of India's tour of Sri Lanka.

Put in to bat after a rain-delayed start, the hosts lost the opening duo of skipper Upul Tharanga (5) and Niroshan Dickwella (17) within the first five overs to totter at 46/2. "170 is competitive, but when you play a team with such quality, we've got to be very, very good in the field and with the ball". It is possible that one ball cannot be bowled in the only T20 match.

Staring at a possible 0-9 lose to India across all formats in the ongoing series, Sri Lankan cricket needed a win to give itself a sense of existence. Hope they will play well at Premadasa Stadium in Colombo today (6 September 2017). So, the captain Virat Kohli is under confusion on the selection of players while the team had some bad taste against West Indies.

India: Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli (captain), Lokesh Rahul, Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wicket-keeper), Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav.
