India have won the T20I series 2-0 with emphatic wins in both the matches.

The last match was, however, a brutal loss for the Lankans as they had to chase 260/5, after a record Rohit Sharma century. They looked in the game until Kuldeep and Chahal picked 3 wickets each in one over of their spells to end the match.

In the 3rd T20I, India will, however, look to give debuts to the likes of Deepak Hooda and Washington Sundar along with Mohammad Siraj getting a look in. 


For Lanka, it will be another trial by fire on the Wankhede pitch against Indian spinners. With their top player Angelo Mathews not available to play, it looks a tough ask from them.


For india, it is a good chance to white wash Sri Lanka in yet another format.
