SL vs IND Probable Best Performers
Probable Best Batter:
Shubman Gill (India)-
Shubman Gill had a rather fearless approach to his game against one of the world’s best pace bowling attack in Pakistan. The swashbuckling right-hander slammed 58 runs off 52 balls against Pakistan in his previous outing which featured 10 boundaries. He will aim to replicate a similar performance and go big against the Lankan Lions.
Probable Best Bowler:
Matheesha Pathirana (Sri Lanka)-
The 20-year-old pacer claimed three wickets against Bangladesh in his last game and gave mere 58 runs in his 9.1 overs at a solid economy of 6.32. Pathirana will be eager to add more wickets under his belt and maintain his purple patch in the competition.
