The white-ball matches between India and Sri Lanka have undergone several changes in match timings and fixtures. The tour had to be rescheduled in the face of Covid cases in the Lankan camp, and the time had to be delayed. Finally, the T20I will start on 25th July, and the last match has been scheduled for 29th July. The T20I matches will start from 8:00 PM instead of 7:00 PM.
The excitement is high regarding the series on both camps. If India’s display in the ODI is anything to go by, the odds look pretty much in their favor for the T20I. Here’s taking a look at what the cricket legends have to say about the final cricket match result for India vs. Sri Lanka T20I.
Wasim Jaffer (former opener for India): The Men in Blue are the favorites for the series
Jaffer said in a YouTube video that though the current side for the T20I has many of the major players missing, India is still a favorite to win both the ODI and the T20I. He believes that Team India is blessed with such brilliant potential and talent that its strength is undoubted.
Furthermore, many of the players from the current batch are regulars at ODIs, like Chahal, Kumar, Dhawan, and Hardik Pandya. So, by his predictions, Indians will be the ultimate winners of this tour. This is something to remember when considering your test match betting odds.
