Last Sunday, Kohli notched up his 30th ODI ton during India's chase of 239 runs against Sri Lanka in the fifth and last game of the series at the same ground.

It will be interesting to see what sort of combination India opts for.

Pandey produced a solid innings to dovetail well with Kohli, and the duo carried India to the brink, before the captain was dismissed. After clearing Sri Lanka in ODI series, Team India will now have to maintain their dominance in the one-off T-20 match.

India ended on 174 for three, with Manish Pandey hitting an unbeaten 51 and KL Rahul scoring 24.

Kedar Jadhav scored a much needed half-century in the final ODI, and he could be afforded another chance to prove his credentials as India prepare for a long limited-overs' schedule at home.

When a confident Indian cricket team will take on a jittery Sri Lankan side, it will look to become the second team after Australia to complete a 9-0 whitewash in cricket.

It was a familiar story for Sri Lanka as the scoreboard read 64 for three after the first powerplay.

IST: It's been raining since last morning in Colombo.




This is the unforgettable tour for India Cricket team, they played their unbelievable matches against Sri Lanka. Because of the rain the players of both teams could not practice.

Kohli was adjudged the Man of the Match. India beat Sri Lanka 3-0 in the Test, 5-0 in ODIs. "Munaweera batted really well, but we lost momentum from overs 10-14", said a disappointed Sri Lanka skipper Upul Tharanga.

Sometimes bowling was considered as a weak link to Team India.

Wednesday's match will be Tharanga's first since being named skipper for the shortest form of the game in July following the resignation of Angelo Mathews who was the captain for all three formats of the game.

2-12 - Sri Lanka's win-loss record in T20Is at Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.

Munaweera (53) with four mighty sixes, saved the hosts from the blushes before spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and chinaman Kuldeep Yadav.

The Host Sri Lanka will play with the bowling line-ups of Seekkuge Prasanna, Dasun Shanaka, and Jeffrey Vandersay.
