Team India will return to action when they host Sri Lanka for the three match T20I series, starting January 5. Virat Kohli will continue to lead the side, while his deputy Rohit Sharma along with fast bowler Mohammed Shami have been given a break. Jasprit Bumrah and opener Shikhar Dhawan have made their comeback after recovering from injuries. Out of 16 T20Is these two teams have played so far, India have won 11 while Sri Lanka have just five wins to their name. Despite their poor record against India, Sri Lanka will be high on confidence, especially after their second-string side completed a clean-sweep against Pakistan in their own backyard.
