In the last 10 T20Is held between the two sides, Sri Lanka have managed just one victory.
The Indian team is currently on the Sri Lanka tour, where it has already won the three-match ODI series. Both teams will also be playing a three-match T20I series. Many of the key Indian players including captain Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are not taking part in this series, as they are on the England tour for the five-match Test series. This has given an opportunity to a lot of new faces to showcase their talent at the highest level.
India are captained by veteran Shikhar Dhawan on this tour with Bhuvneshwar Kumar being the vice-captain of the side. The current series is the last limited-overs series for India before the T20 World Cup scheduled in October-November later this year. Let’s look at the head-to-head record of India and Sri Lanka in T20I cricket.
