LIVE Match Updates: India vs West Sri Lanka 1st T20I, Guwahati

Indian skipper Virat Kohli was hit on the little finger of his left-hand while taking a catch on the eve of the first T20I against Sri Lanka.The incident happened in the first half of India’s practice session. Team India physio Nitin Patel rushed to attend Kohli as he was seen applying the magic spray. The only notable absentee from India’s practice was spin all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, who was the last to arrive in Guwahati on Thursday.

Both teams are playing their first T20 clash after 22 months. India defeated the West Indies 2-1 in their last T20I series, while the Islanders are smarting from a 0-3 rout in Australia. The task for the Lankans appears all the more difficult as they are yet to win a bilateral series against India, across all formats, since Kohli’s debut 12 years ago. Since then, they have lost 16 games in a row.
