SL vs IND Today Match Prediction, 3rd T20I, 29th July 2021

KhelTalk is the only destination that brings you the finest today’s match prediction that you can trust. We are here for SL vs. IND Today Match Prediction, 3rd T20I, Online Cricket Betting Tips, which will provide every user with a clear picture of which team and in what aspect they can place their bets.


India lost the 2nd T20I in a thrilling match. After the Covid outbreak in the Indian camp, India had no options left in the batting department. India played with only 5 batsmen in this match. On a slow track, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Shikhar Dhawan gave India a decent start. After the powerplay pitch started its magic, the turn and bounce troubled Indian batters. India managed to post 132 on the board, which was below par score for any T20I. Indian bowlers gave fight till the end, but luck was not on the Indian side.

India gave debuts to four players in this match, and inexperience in the batting lineup eventually became the reason for the below-par total. The players who were in contact with Krunal were tested negative, but they couldn’t participate in this match due to protocols. These players are ruled out of 3rd T20I also, but India nearly pulled off the victory in the last T20I. If batters can post a decent total, then even with this squad, India can beat Srilanka.

Srilanka finally broke their embarrassing losing streak against India. India played with their C side, but still, Srilanka had to beat them and did the job. On the slow wicket of Colombo, Srilankan spinners were more smart and brave. They didn’t give an inch to Indian batters in the middle overs. While chasing, there were moments when Srilanka was in trouble, but a calm finish from Dhananjaya de Silva with cameos from Wanindu Hasaranga and Chamika Karunaratne helped them to register a win. 

Srilanka will now eye on the maiden series win against India. Their bowling has looked good in both matches, but they will be hoping for a better show in the final T20I by their batters. Wanindu Hasaranga has carried the team alone in 2021, but new stars like Chamika Karunaratne are putting their hands up. Finally, after so much criticism and controversy, Srilanka cricket seems on the right track.

Pitch Report

R.Premadasa Stadium’s pitch has now become a 5th-day test wicket. Runs were very difficult to run in middle overs. Spinners will again be the deciding factor in this match. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Dushmantha Chameera showed the perfect way to bowl on this surface for seamers. Captains will look to bat first and make most of the wicket before it turns into a bowling-friendly.

SL vs IND– Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

India expected to win the match against Srilanka

KhelTalk experts feel that India will win against Sri Lanka and seal the series. India was playing without key players but they nearly pulled off a victory. India posted only 132 runs but still, Srilanka was behind at one stage, if India can score 140 odd runs then they can win this match. Indian players are very young but they have played in similar situations in the IPL. Srilanka won the last match but questions are still over their batting lineup. We expect India to win this encounter.

Top Batsman from India – Shikhar Dhawan (3.25 odds)

Shikhar Dhawan is the most experienced batsman in the lineup. He scored 40 odd runs in both matches but has not looked in his usual class. He is the captain of the team and has been in good T20 form in 2021, India’s hopes are on his shoulders now. India has only 5 batsmen left in the squad, we might again see Shikhar Dhawan playing the anchor role in the final T20I. He is in good nick and has scored runs in the series so far. He is our pick for the top batsman from India.

Top Batsman from Srilanka– Avishka Fernando(3.60 odds)

Srilankan hopes will be on Avishka Fernando. If he scores quickly in the powerplay,  it will spoil all Indian bowling plans. He can be the main batsman for slow pitches like this, his counter-attacking style can put bowlers under immense pressure. In the 2nd T20I, he scored 11 runs but hopes will be high for the last match. He can take on Indian spinners, take away match from India easily. He is the biggest threat to the Indian team. He is our top batsman pick from Srilanka.

Top Bowler from Srilanka – Wanindu Hasaranga (3.25 odds)

Wanindu Hasaranga has been spectacular on this tour. He not only did his job with the ball but his cameo of 15 runs helped Srilanka to shift momentum.  His unpredictability is his massive weapon. India players are constantly failing to pick his variations, and especially on slow tracks. Wanindu Hasaranga’s performance can be a deciding factor in the final match of the series. Indian team is struggling against his bowling and looking to play him safely. He can create problems for the Indian team again and can give you big returns.

Top Bowler from India– Bhuvneshwar Kumar (5.00 odds)

Bhuvneshwar Kumar used all his experience in the last match but couldn’t take India home. He only conceded 9 runs from his first 3 overs but the 19th over of innings cost India the match, he conceded 12 runs in that over. This tour has been excellent for Bhuvneshwar Kumar so far, he looked in his old form. On a two-paced wicket, he showed his experience and mixed the pace very well. He is the go-to man for Shikhar Dhawan, and his experience will be crucial for India in the final match. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is looking in magnificent form, and he is our pick for best bowler from India.
