India (IND) and Sri Lanka (SL) will play the third T20I of the ongoing series on Saturday (January 7) at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Rajkot. India won the first game by a mere margin of two runs after posting a total of 162 runs on the board. The inexperience of the bowling unit almost cost them the game. The bowlers were tested in the second T20I and failed completely. The Sri Lankan middle order failed to contribute in the first game, but the batting unit clicked in the last game. The batters posted a humongous total of 206 runs on the board in 20 overs. Umaran Malik did pick three wickets for the team but gave away 48 runs. Sri Lanka managed to solve most of the issues they had in the first game and, hence, could outperform the Indian team. They won their first T20I against India in India since February 2016.

Injury and availability news
Avg 1st Inning Score
Suryakumar Yadav IND | BAT
The right-handed batter made 51 runs off 36 deliveries in the last game and almost helped the team cross the line. He will likely play a key role in this game and hence, is one of the best captaincy picks.
Rahul Tripathi IND | BAT
The 31-year-old made his T20I debut in the last game after playing 125 matches. He was given the number three position to bat but failed to deliver a significant knock. He has been in decent form recently and can play an important role if he bats in the same place.
Ishan Kishan IND | WK
He made 37 runs off 29 deliveries in the first game and provided a solid start to the team. The left-handed batter jumped ten positions in the ICC rankings and is now in 23rd place.
