India are on a high after sealing the One-Day International series 4-1 against Sri Lanka. The visitors will look to build on the good form and end the series on a high note with yet another victory in the one-off T20 match at Pallekele.
However, Sri Lanka will be keen to win the one-off T20 International in order to consolidate for their terrible performace in the ODI series.
They will look to take advantage of the absence of Virender Sehwag and Zaheer Khan who have returned to India.
Manoj Tiwary’s form is a good sign for India as they will hope for Rohit Sharma to a make a strong comeback with the bat in the T20 match.
