Sri Lanka seeks consolation win in 3rd T20I


The 3rd and final T20 International between Sri Lanka and India will be played at Mumbai today (24).
With Angelo Mathews being sidelined with an injury, Dasun Shanaka will be recalled again.
According to cricket critics, Sri Lanka is still struggling to find the right combination in the team.
In the last game, they lost 9 for 27 in 25 balls.
Even skipper Thisara Perera has failed to meet the expectations.
On this tour, he hasn't passed 6 in four innings with the bat and has an economy rate of nearly nine after 25.2 overs.
With the series in the bag, India might consider giving a T20I debut to 18-year-old Tamil Nadu allrounder Washington Sundar or Baroda allrounder Deepak Hooda.
The statistics show that Sri Lanka has lost 22 out of 30 T20Is in the last two years. 
In comparison, India has won 23 out of 33 T20Is in the last two years. 
Rohit Sharma has hit 64 sixes across formats in 2017, the most by a batsman in any calendar year.
Probable teams -

1 Rohit Sharma (capt), 2 KL Rahul, 3 Shreyas Iyer, 4 Dinesh Karthik, 5 Manish Pandey, 6 MS Dhoni (wk), 7 Hardik Pandya, 8 Kuldeep Yadav/Washington Sundar, 9 Jaydev Unadkat/Basil Thampi, 10 Jasprit Bumrah, 11 Yuzvendra Chahal.
Sri Lanka: 
1 Upul Tharanga, 2 Niroshan Dickwella(wk), 3 Kusal Perera, 4 Sadeera Samarawickrama, 5 Thisara Perera, 6 Asela Gunaratne, 7 Dasun Shanaka/Vishwa Fernando, 8 Akila Dananjaya, 9 Chaturanga de Silva/Sachith Pathirana 10 Dushmantha Chameera 11 Nuwan Pradeep
