Following the conclusion of the West Indies tour of India, the Men in Blue will be going up against Sri Lanka in a three-match T20I series followed by two Test matches. Sri Lanka tour of India will kickstart from February 24 in Lucknow.
The two teams last played against each other in July 2021 when India toured the island nation for a three-match ODI and T20I series. The tour saw India winning the ODI series by 2-1 while Sri Lanka emerged victorious in the shortest format of the game by 2-1.
India will be riding on confidence as they will play against Sri Lanka. The team outclassed West Indies in three ODIs and T20Is each by 3-0. Also, they will start as the favorites as they have the home advantage.
Sri Lanka, on the other hand, will hope for redemption after a torrid outing during the Sri Lanka tour of Australia. Dasun Shanaka’s side was recently up against Australia in a five-match T20I series. The games didn’t go as per the plan for the visitors as they lost the first four T20Is. The visitors secured a victory in the last match by five wickets to lose the series by 1-4.
