Toss

Sri Lanka have won the toss and asked India to bat first.

Preview

Live updates from the one off T20 match between India and Sri Lanka. The match starts today at 7 pm India time.

The match is being seen as an ideal preparation for the T20 World Cup which takes place in Sri Lanka in September this year.

India would be missing the services of Virender Sehwag and Zaheer Khan as both flew back to India after the ODI series due to injury.

The ODI series has been a kind of emergence of Irfan Pathan as an anrounder. Pathan not only took wickets but scored runs at crucial junctures in the series.

Another good news for India is the form of Manoj Tiwary who came good in both the matches he finally got to play after a long wait.

Following a dominating 4-1 triumph in ODIs, India now look to stamp their authority against Sri Lanka in the only Twenty20 international.

India`s domination was reflected in the margin of victory and they would look to carry their rampaging form to the shortest version of cricket as well.

Sri Lanka and India have played only four T20s since 2009, with both teams winning two each and Mahendra Singh Dhoni`s men will look to gain an upper hand on Tuesday.

The match also holds prominence considering the fact that the T20 World Cup is round the corners and it would be hosted by Sri Lanka from September 18.

The Indian team had a smooth comeback to international cricket after a rather long break. Their batters fared well and so did the bowlers.


India squad

MS Dhoni*†, V Kohli, R Ashwin, AB Dinda, G Gambhir, Z Khan, PP Ojha, IK Pathan, AM Rahane, SK Raina, V Sehwag, R Sharma, RG Sharma, MK Tiwary, UT Yadav
