Our batters are in good form while bowlers are doing decent job so far this tournament and always plan to go match by match said Dasun Shanaka who is a strong middle order batter of the side.

Sri Lanka having two key spinners Wanindu Hasaranga and Maheesh Theekshana both are having IPL experience last time and both of them have good knowledge about the Indian key players.” I think by playing with more Indian players at the IPL we got knowledge of them and both Maheesh Theekshana and Wanidu Hasaranga are our key bowlers while our top order batters are in good form and these are extra benefit for this game,” added Dasun Shanaka.

The openers Kusal Mendis and Pathum Nissanka are in good touch with the bat while Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Dhanushka Gunatilleka also in good form. The only worry of the vice captain Charith Asalanka who was not good with the bat having failed in three times in a row. However Sri Lanka Cricket team is not finalized the last eleven players and it has to be named yesterday night after the final training session. However Dhananjaya de Silva will most probably replace for Asalanka.

Meanwhile Indian team led by Rohit Sharma is ready to win today’s game and their main strengthen is batting while experienced Virat Kholi also in good form to make good innings. That is plus point for Indians. Indian spinners also doing a good job with the ball while they also expected the dashing batter Hardik Pandya will click at the right time to put pressure for Sri Lanka.
