Despite decent outcomes, India’s T20I statistics for 2022 do not always produce a positive vibe. They participated in 40 matches in all, including bilateral series, the T20 World Cup, and the Asia Cup, setting a record for the most games played by any team in a calendar year.

The Men in Blue won 8 of the bilateral series they played, out of 9, however they were unable to advance to the T20 World Cup and Asia Cup finals. As a result, the BCCI held a review meeting to start the New Year as the year came to a close.

The team’s slow batting strategy in the fast-paced format has drawn criticism. The series against Sri Lanka offers the ideal chance to correct those mistakes and start 2023 out strong. India has a very young team for the three-match series with an eye toward the T20 World Cup later in the year.

In Rohit Sharma’s absence, India’s swashbuckling all-rounder Hardik Pandya was once again given the captaincy. Even though it was stated following the BCCI review meeting that Sharma will retain the captaincy in Tests and the 50-over format, only time will tell if he also retains the position in the 20-over format.

Dasun Shanaka will serve as the team captain for the visitors in both the T20Is and the ensuing ODI series. Bhanuka Rajapaksa and Nuwan Thushara will only play the shortest format according to the 20-member roster that has been announced for the tour. The former hasn’t been hitting well lately, but he carries the potential for a huge performance that, on his finest day, can stun the opposition.

Through strong performances in the LPL, where he hit 168.68, Chamika Karunaratne gained the confidence of the Sri Lankan board. Similar to how he got there, Thushara did it with the ball, taking 14 victims at a 7.44 economy rate. The 2022 Asia Cup champions are eager to demonstrate that their victory over Pakistan in the final wasn’t an aberration.
