Match: India vs Sri Lanka, 3rd T20I | Sri Lanka tour of India

Date: Saturday, 7 Jan 2023

Time: 18:30 (GMT+5) / 19:00 (GMT+5.5) / 19:30 (GMT+6)

Format: T20I

Venue: Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Rajkot

India vs Sri Lanka Preview

  • Both sides have a potent lineup at the plate.
  • India’s bowling lineup has a lot of inexperience and is prone to errors.
  • The circumstances in Saurashtra ought to be in the Indians’ favour. India has only lost two of the past 12 games it has played against Sri Lanka.


On Saturday night at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium, India (IND) and Sri Lanka (SL) will play the third of three IT20 matches. In a nail-biting game in Pune, Sri Lanka prevailed by 16 runs while successfully defending their 206-6 total.  At 19:00 local time, the series’ third game begins in Rajkot.

In the second T20 international, India’s bowling was shockingly awful, which ultimately cost it the game. In his final over, Umran Malik showed inexperience and the entire bowling unit simply threw an absurd number of no-balls.

Sri Lanka rightfully won the second T20 international. Perhaps they ought to have won the first one as well, and as a result, they’ll enter the third T20 with nothing on their minds but winning the series. The Sri Lankan batting order, at last, met our expectations and put up a convincing performance.

India vs Sri Lanka Weather Report, Toss Prediction And Pitch Report

On the day of the game, Rajkot is not expected to experience any rain. As the match begins and the temps begin to fall, the surroundings will be pleasant and cosy.

The toss-winning team will seek to open the batting order. Both sides have won by batting first thus far, and it is likely that they will do so again in this game.

This is a place where the odds are stacked to the batters’ advantage.

India Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Although Ishan Kishan, Shubman Gill, and Rahul Tripathi did not play well in the last game, they still have a chance. They are all excellent batters who can score runs if given enough chances. We anticipate the Indian top order to be significantly more productive in Rajkot on a flat batting surface. There will be no changes in the XI.

India’s Probable XI

Hardik Pandya (c), Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Shubman Gill, Sanju Samson, Harshal Patel, Deepak Hooda, Axar Patel, Shivam Mavi, Umran Malik, Yuzvendra Chahal  

Sri Lanka News & Probable Playing XIs

The T20 team for Sri Lanka is very balanced, and its star players are playing well. Their victory should not come as a surprise, but Sri Lanka has historically had difficulty putting together consistently great performances. There will be no changes in their XI too.

These opportunities were plentiful in the first two games, and they might be in the third as well. However, if you only want to place one pre-game wager, we still recommend backing India. On the flat Rajkot surface, India’s batting order will be challenging to contain, thus we anticipate fewer errors from them in this game. Bet for India to triumph.
