- India welcome Sri Lanka for a three-game T20i series, with the tourists having been announced as replacements for Zimbabwe, when the latter’s tour was cancelled in the wake of their ICC suspension.
- India have rested Rohit Sharma for the series, but still boast a very strong line-up – led by Virat Kohli and featuring fit-again Jasprit Bumrah.
- Angelo Mathews has been recalled by Sri Lanka, meanwhile, and could be fit to bowl too as they look to bounce back from their thrashing in Australia.
