IND vs SL 3rd T20I Live Score: Sri Lanka Off To Steady Start Chasing 82 Runs In Final

IND vs SL T20I Live: Sri Lanka bowlers dominated first half of the 3rd T20I against India.© Twitter

Decent start from Sri Lanka in their low-scoring chase of 82 runs against India in the third T20I at Colombo. Sri Lankan bowlers were on top right from the start of the Indian innings. Wanindu Hasaranga was the top performer for Sri Lanka with his four wickets for just nine runs. None of the Indian batsmen crossed the 30-run mark. Kuldeep Yadav was the top scorer for India with his 23 runs followed by Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s 16 runs. Before the T20Is, India had won the ODI series 2-1 and a win in this game will mean the visitors will take the T20I series as well. On the other hand, Sri Lanka will look to continue their winning momentum and seal the T20I series with a win in the final game of the tour. (LIVE SCORECARD)

    Hello and Welcome!

    Hello and welcome to the third and final T20I between India and Sri Lanka that will be played in Colombo. It was a thriller in the second T20I where Sri Lanka won a nail-biting encounter against India by 4 wickets. The series is levelled by 1-1 and this game will be the series decider. India fielded four debutants in the last game after their eight players were isolated as they were deemed close contacts of all-rounder Krunal Pandya, who tested positive for COVID-19. India had won the ODI series 2-1 and a win in this game will mean the visitors will take the T20I series as well. Sri Lanka will look to continue their winning momentum and win the final game to seal the T20I series.
