India vs sri lanka
Sri Lanka are taking a lot of confidence with them heading into this clash. With a superior net run-rate, they currently sit atop the Super 4 table and will be looking to ride the momentum wave. There wasn’t a single half-century from the Sri Lankans against Afghanistan in the weekend game but there were plenty of valuable contributions with the bat that helped them go past the opposition’s 175, which will hold them in good stead.
When: Tuesday, September 6 at 6:00 PM Local Time (7:30 PM IST)
Where: Dubai International Cricket Stadium
What to expect: The first-innings totals have been north of 170 after the first three matches which were low-scoring affairs. But teams batting second have found more success, even in chases of hefty totals. The weather will be very warm with a high of 36 degree Celsius.
Head to head: India have won 17 and lost only seven matches, with one no-result, in T20Is against Sri Lanka. The only time India faced Sri Lanka in an Asia Cup T20 was in Mirpur in 2016, a game which India won by five wickets.
Injury/Unavailability: No injury concerns have been reported in the Sri Lanka side.
