Will the Depleted Indian side could win T20 International series against Sri Lanka?

Shikhar Dhawan Biography

Indian Team who was on the tour of Sri Lanka was often called “B Side” as most of the players from the regular squad including the likes of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Mohammad Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Rishabh Pant and others are currently in England for a five-match Test series in England so the Indian team playing against Sri Lanka includes lots of youngster under the leadership of Shikhar Dhawan.

India didn’t disappoint in ODI series as they have clinched the series by 2-1 but the three-match T20 International series is currently poised 1-1 with the final to be played today but the biggest disappointment for India is that they are missing their 8 Key players who are a close contact of Krunal Pandya who were detected positive for COVID-19 and other seven players including the likes of Surya Kumar Yadav, Prithvi Shaw, K Gowtham, Yuzvendra Chahal and others will not be playing final T20 International today.

So the question arises whether India can make a comeback and win T20 International series against Sri Lanka with depleted Indian squad is a point to ponder as India are playing with only five specialist batsman with Bhuvneshwar Kumar coming at number 6th and Navdeep Saini at number 7th so top 5 batsmen including the likes of Dhawan, Gaikwad, Paddikal, Samson and Rana should take accountability when it comes to batting and Kumar and Saini also had to contribute little bit with the bat so that If India bats first they can make respectable score and if they are chasing Shikhar Dhawan being the most experienced player had to play the role of sheet anchor.

Whereas the Sri Lanka national team under the leadership of Dasun Shanka will be looking to take revenge of the ODI series by winning the T20 Format as it will boost the morale of the team who is seriously struggling at the moment.
