SL vs IND Dream11 Prediction, Fantasy Tips, Captain Picks, Playing11, Live Streaming details for India vs Sri Lanka 1st T20I – SL vs IND Match Preview: Sri Lanka will be mighty please with their 3 wickets win in the third and final ODI on Friday and will be looking to replicate the performances in the T20I series starting tomorrow. The first of the three T20Is will be played on Sunday followed by the second and third on July 27 and July 29.

It can be said that too many changes in the last ODI cost India the match but it would be unfair for Sri Lanka who really came back strongly in the last two games. Barring the first ODI, the hosts did perform exceptionally well in the other two ODIs – as they almost reached the crossing line in the second ODI before finally managing to end their winless run against India in the third ODI.

The focus now shifts towards the shortest format as both teams will be eyeing to take a lead in the opening game and set the tone for the series. The consolation win in the third ODI would have really lifted the spirits of the Sri Lankan camp and it will be interesting to watch if they can trouble Shikhar Dhawan-led young Indian side.

The match will start at 08:00 PM IST and will live stream on the SonyLiv app.
