At the Saurashtra Cricket Association stadium in Rajkot, the third T20I of the three-match series will feature a match between India and Sri Lanka. This game will decide the series after India won the T20I in Mumbai and Sri Lanka won the T20I in Pune.
The squad lost the second T20I in Pune after winning the first one in Mumbai. The main concern for the team so far is that the top order hasn’t performed well in the event. In the lower order, Axar Patel has been outstanding with the bat, and the bowlers have also played admirably.
Sri Lanka would like to win the series here after their remarkable comeback in Pune. Their top player, Dasun Shanaka, has performed admirably for the team. The strength of this team is its bowling, albeit the top order also performed admirably in the last game.
India vs Sri Lanka 3rd T20 Pitch Report
The batters will once again enjoy their time in the middle at the Saurashtra Cricket Association stadium in Rajkot, which has one of the flattest courses in the nation. India won the most recent game played here by 82 runs in June of last year. South Africa only scored 87 runs as India registered a score of 169/6.
The average first innings score in the 4 T20Is that has been played has been 180 runs, showing that the batsmen have enjoyed batting here. Two of the four games were won by the pursuing teams. The bowlers will struggle out there in the middle since there is generally no assistance available.
This field’s outfield is extremely quick, making it difficult for fielders to stop the boundary once it has entered the gap. Even the stadium’s limits are not very large, so it won’t be difficult for hitters to clear them. After winning the toss, both captains would adore chasing.
