IND vs SL: Rohit Sharma talks about potential changes in third T20I

IND vs SL: India skipper Rohit Sharma said the team will make some changes in the playing XI for the third T20I against Sri Lanka on Sunday.

India defeated Sri Lanka by seven wickets in the second T20I on Saturday, thanks to Shreyas Iyer’s stunning fifty and Ravindra Jadeja’s 45 in 18 balls.

“We’ll sit down tomorrow, see what we can do (on any team changes), we have used 27 players so far, there could be more (laughs). When you win the series, there are guys who haven’t had the opportunities. Some of the guys will have to play Tests, we’ll have to look after everyone,” said Rohit in a post-match presentation.

“It’s the sign of the times we’re in, it’s fine to look after physically. But it’s the mental thing that’s important as well. At the end of the day, we need to keep winning. And keep positive vibes going through in the team,” he added.

India also secured the two-match T20I series (2-0) with one game remaining. On Sunday, the third T20I between the two teams will be played.

India’s chase for 184 got off to a poor start when skipper Rohit Sharma dismissed in the first over. As the batter edged the ball onto the stumps, Dushmantha Chameera removed Rohit.

Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer put on a 35-run stand in the sixth over, but Lahiru Kumara removed the batter. The innings then carried by Shreyas and Sanju Samson, who accelerated at the ideal time to get close to the objective.

Binura Fernando took a one-handed catch to dismiss Samson in the 13th over, reducing India to 128/3. In the second T20I, though, Jadeja and Shreyas Iyer (74) led India to a comfortable victory over Sri Lanka. In 25 balls, Jadeja and Shreyas put on a crucial 58-run stand.
