  • WATCH | India v  s Sri Lanka T20 Did this epic gaffe during the Toss help Virat Kohli and Co create history

Brief Scores: Sri Lanka 170 for seven wickets (Dilshan Munaweera 53, Ashan Priyanjan 40no, Yuzvendra Chahal 3/43, Kuldeep Yadav 2/20) lost to India 174 for three (Virat Kohli 82, Manish Pandey 51no).

Kohli has built up a formidable batting reputation while chasing and the India captain once again came up with a 54-ball masterclass, hitting seven boundaries and a six, to anchor India's chase.

Hardik Pandya was rested for that fifth match on Sunday, and he too is expected to return to the playing eleven. He is expected to repeat this trick with Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav this time around. 30-year-old cricketer Suranga Lakmal, who's been absent from global cricket for over 3 months, will now be making a comeback against India.

Especially, the India cricket team players such as Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma stands at the top of the lineup and fired well on all the matches as their best. He has taken 15 wickets in the ODI series. Obviously, T20 is a format where any team can turn around. They had earlier won Test series 3-0 and ODI series 5-0.

The Sri Lankan team has been on a downfall so far. Hope they will play well at Premadasa Stadium in Colombo today (6 September 2017). The rains forced both the teams to miss practice session on Tuesday.

With his brilliancy with the willow to notch up yet another masterful innings, Kohli amassed a total of 1830 runs in T20Is which took him past Afghanistan's Mohammad Shahzad (1779) and New Zealand's Martin Guptill (1806) on the list of highest run-getters in the shortest format of cricket. Historically, Sri Lanka has never been this abysmal in a home series. Pandya hadn't featured in India's last T20I against the West Indies, with Kohli opting for five full-time bowlers back in July.

Sri Lanka squad: Upul Tharanga (captain), Angelo Mathews, Niroshan Dickwella, Dilshan Munaweera, Dasun Shanaka, Milinda Siriwardana, Wanidu Hasaranga, Akila Dananjaya, Jeffrey Vandersay, Isuru Udana, Seekkuge Prasanna, Thisara Perera, Lasith Malinga, Suranga Lakmal and Vikum Sanjaya.
