India will lock horns with Sri Lanka in the first match of the three-T20I series, at Barabati Stadium, Cuttack. The live cricket streaming of the match will be available on Hotstar, while the live telecast of the match will be available on Star Sports 1 and Star Sports 1 HD, along with Hindi commentary on Star Sports 1 Hindi and Star Sports 1 HD Hindi, while Star Sports 1 Tamil will be telecast with Tamil commentary. In UK, the live streaming is available on Watch Sky Sports, along with the live telecast on Sky Sports Cricket. You can catch the ball-by-ball commentary on CricketCountry’s scorecard.

MS Dhoni needs three dismissals to go past AB de Villiers’ tally of 72. No other wicket-keeper has pouched even 60 dismissals. If the Sri Lankans decide to falter against spinners like they did in the third ODI at Vizag, Dhoni may as well attain a new record in the first T20I itself.

Rohit Sharma will become India’s sixth cricketer to lead the side in T20Is, after Virender Sehwag, Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Ajinkya Rahane, and Virat Kohli.
