IND vs SL Dream11 Team Prediction, Fantasy Cricket Tips and Playing 11 Updates for 3rd T20I

India and Sri Lanka are set to face each other for one last time in this six-match white-ball series at the RPICS, Colombo.

IND vs SL Dream11

The third Twenty20 International (T20I) between India and Sri Lanka will take place on July 29, 2021, at the R Premadasa International Cricket Stadium, Colombo. The game will kickstart from 8:00 PM local time – 8:00 PM (IST) onwards and will be streamed live on Sony Sports Network and Sony Liv.

Just like the previous clash, team India will take the field with a void of as many as nine members of their squad of 20 cricketers. Soon after Krunal Pandya tested positive for the novel coronavirus, eight other players were also isolated as they had come in close contact with him. As a result, the Shikhar Dhawan-led side will take the field with the same playing XI just like the last clash.

On the other hand, Sri Lanka are also not expected to make many changes in their side as they have already tried plenty of options in the five limited-overs matches taken place so far.

Let’s look at our fantasy 11 predictions for this clash and here are the top picks for IND vs SL.
