IND vs SL Betting Tips

  • Suryakumar Yadav made his first half-century of 2023 in Pune and we are backing him to be India’s highest run scorer in this match. Umran Malik has taken five wickets across this series so far and the pace bowler is a strong choice for India’s top wicket taker in Rajkot.
  • Kusal Mendis hit 52 runs from 31 balls at the top of the order in the second IT20 and he is our tip for Sri Lanka’s highest run scorer in the third game. Pace bowler Kasun Rajitha bounced back from a disappointing opening of the series with figures of 2-22 in Pune. He is a very accurate bowler and is our pick for Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker in this fixture.
  • After he scored 51 runs from 36 balls after a very slow start on Thursday, we recommend backing Suryakumar Yadav to hit over 27.5 runs in Rajkot

IND vs SL 3rd T20 Match Prediction & Betting Tips

India and Sri Lanka lock horns for the final time in this IT20 series with the score at 1-1 ahead of this third match. The hosts won the opening game of the series by two runs in Mumbai before Sri Lanka came back to level the series with a 16 run victory in Pune on Thursday. Read on as we preview this game. The final clash of the series gets underway at 19:00 local time in Rajkot.

India have talked about the importance of learning in this series and putting themselves in difficult positions. They very nearly completed an extraordinary comeback on Thursday and we expect them to win this final match.

Sri Lanka put in a brilliant performance in the second game of the series and with Dasun Shanaka’s continued good form against India, anything is possible. We expect them to give India a very good game in this third IT20.

IND vs SL Match Toss Prediction

The scores are level at 2-2 between teams winning after batting first and bowling first in IT20s at this venue. India struggled to chase in the last game and we predict Sri Lanka will bat first again in this match.

IND vs SL, Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium Pitch Report

We expect this pitch to deliver similar sized totals as the surface in Pune. Any score over 200 will be tough to chase down and we would be surprised if there is not good pace in the wicket.

Rajkot Weather Report

Humidity will not be an issue in Rajkot where we expect clear skies with the temperature dropping from 31 degrees to the mid-20s over the course of the match.

India Team News & Playing 11

IND Team News

There were two changes for India ahead of the second IT20 in Pune with left-arm pace bowler Arshdeep Singh, who missed the opening game through illness, coming in for Harshal Patel and Rahul Tripathi making his international debut in place of Sanju Samson who will also miss this match.

IND Key Players

  • Suryakmuar Yadav- with wickets falling around him, Yadav was forced to bat with care and attention in the early stages of his innings. However, once he got going he showed off his range of strokes and we expect more of the same in Rajkot.
  • Axar Patel- it has been a very impressive series for the bowling all-rounder. He hit 31 not out at the Wankhede Stadium before top scoring with 65 from 31 balls on Thursday after he had taken 2-24 with the ball.
  • Umran Malik- the 23 year old pace bowler looks to be finding his feet at international level after picking up only two wickets from his first three IT20s. He has since recorded figures of 2-27 and 3-48 in this series.

IND Team Form

India continue to experiment and to play some inexperienced players. They have won only two of their last five IT20s.

Sri Lanka Team News & Playing 11

SL Team News

Dasun Shanaka led an unchanged team to victory in Pune and his side could do far worse than to try and emulate their captain who has been in excellent form. Some of their bowlers were expensive at times in Pune but they all have that vital wicket taking ability in this format. There are no injuries in the squad.

SL Key Players

  • Kusal Mendis- the keeper-batter hit three fours and four sixes in the second IT20 and got his side off to an excellent start. He has now hit 11 half-centuries in this format.
  • Dasun Shanaka- the skipper has made scores of 56 not out, 45, 33 not out, 74 not out and 47 not out in his last five IT20s against India. His strike-rate was 254.54 on Thursday and he will look to better it in this match.
  • Kasun Rajitha- the 29 year old right arm medium fast bowler was in brilliant form in Pune. He dismissed both of India’s openers and beat the bat on numerous occasions.

SL Team Form

Sri Lanka ended a losing run of two games with the win in the second IT20 of the series. They also ended a run of 11 IT20 away defeats against India in the process.

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing 11

Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis (wk), Dhananjaya de Silva, Charith Asalanka, Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Dasun Shanaka (c), Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Maheesh Theekshana, Kasun Rajitha, Dilshan Madushanka

Who will win India vs Sri Lanka 3rd T20 Match?

No-balls were a big issue for India’s bowlers on Thursday and that will be an area they will want to cut down on ahead of this game. If they can do that then they should have the ability to get on top of Sri Lanka’s batters.

IND vs SL Top Team Batsmen

Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav and Shubman Gill are our batting tips for India. Kishan is favourite with the bookies to top score at the top of the order in this match. Gill has played some stylish shots but still needs to make a big score in this game to secure a regular place in the IT20 side.

Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis and Dasun Shanaka are our batting recommendations for Sri Lanka. Nissanka has the top odds with the bookmakers and looked very solid whilst making 33 in the second IT20. Shanaka’s form is very strong and he is capable of hitting sixes off all of India’s bowling attack.

IND vs SL Top Team Bowlers

Axar Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal and Umran Malik are our picks for India with the ball. Patel bowled the final over in the first IT20 and in the powerplay on Thursday. He clearly has the confidence of his skipper. Chahal got the crucial wicket of Kusal Mendis in the second match of the series.

We have selected Wanindu Hasaranga, Kasun Rajitha and Dilshan Madushanka for Sri Lanka as their top bowlers.  Hasaranga is the bookmakers favourite to be Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker and he very rarely fails to pick up at least one wicket. Madushanka impressed in his opening spell on Thursday before getting the big wickets of Tripathi and Yadav,
