Sri Lanka vs India Match Prediction
If Sri Lanka are to get anything from this T20I series they really need to find to up their game. Too many batsmen simply didn’t turn up and this was their downfall. Sri Lanka will surely not want a whitewash and will undoubtedly up their game in the second match.
Unfortunately for Sri Lanka they are facing arguably the best T20I side at present. India are an incredible force, with a strong batting lineup as well as possessing a fierce bowling attack. We can see only one winner in this match and will be backing India.

Not enough from Sri Lanka in terms of batting scores. Consistency is key and if only one of your batsmen are getting anywhere near a half century against this India side, it simply wont be good enough.
