INDIA VS SRILANKA
India and Sri Lanka will kick off with the first T20I series of the year. Both sides will look to start the new year on a positive note during the three-match series.
Two familiar sides will collide against each other but the return of star Indian pacer Jasprit Bumrah is likely to grab all the spotlight. Bumrah, who missed India’s home season up till now, is in line to make his first appearance after recovering from the lower back injury that kept him out of action.
Virat Kohli-led India will start as heavy favourites against Sri Lankan side which will be led by Lasith Malinga. However, the young Sri Lankan side that toured Pakistan in October will take immense confidence from the 3-0 clean sweep against number 1-ranked T20I side.
