Toss delayed due to rain; Virat Kohli eyes 9-0 clean sweep

Toss delayed due to rain; Virat Kohli eyes 9-0 clean sweep

They had earlier won Test series 3-0 and ODI series 5-0.

It will be interesting to see what sort of combination India opts for.

Indian cricket team is a very fit unit and a lot of credit goes to former captain MS Dhoni and present captain Virat Kohli. Dilshan Munaweera smashed his maiden half-century while debutant Ashan Priyanjan played a useful hand to guide Sri Lanka to a respectable 170 for seven in the lone Twenty20 match.

Helping him in the chase were KL Rahul (24), who helped consolidate after Rohit Sharma fell with his individual score reading just nine, and Manish Pandey, who forged an invaluable 119-run second-wicket partnership with his skipper to accelerate the chase after joining forces at 42 for two.

Kedar Jadhav scored a much needed half-century in the final ODI, and he could be afforded another chance to prove his credentials as India prepare for a long limited-overs' schedule at home. Yet another thrilling encounter awaits us as R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo gets ready like a bride of the Indian cricket team.

Froome's lead cut by Nibali as race for Vuelta glory reignited
The Netherlands' Wilco Kelderman is 2:13 down on the race leader with four stages remaining, while Zakarin is 2:25 off the pace. However, this is also the stage in which Froome will get the biggest time against contenders in the overall standings.

Sri Lanka and Indian sub-continent:Sony Ten. Obviously, T20 is a format where any team can turn around.

India's bid for a historic triple clean sweep over Sri Lanka could be spoilt by rain as the teams were getting ready to face in the lone Twenty20 worldwide tonight (September 6). Virat Kohli has made it clear that he has his eyes set on the cup and the preparation for that has already begun.

Sometimes bowling was considered as a weak link to Team India. In the T20, Sri Lanka will play for the first time in the captaincy of their new captain, Upul Tharanga.

The players and fans will be hoping that rain stops and they have a full game or a shortened one. It was his fourth consecutive half-century in T20Is against Sri Lanka, and in doing so, he became the fastest batsman to score 15000 global runs across formats in 333 innings, improving Hashim Amla's record of 336 innings.

Sri Lanka - Dilshan Munaweera, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Upul Tharanga (c), Angelo Mathews, Seekkuge Prasanna, Milinda Siriwardana, Dasun Shanaka, Thisara Perera, Suranga Lakmal, Lasith Malinga, Akila Dananjaya/Jeffrey Vandersay. For India, Chahal took 3 wickets and Yadav 2 with Bumrah and Bhuvaneshwar claiming 1 each.
