Each year comes and goes, but Paytm and Mastercard trophies are here to stay. Another IndiaSri Lanka white-ball series is set to get underway, with questions around the home side’s T20I combinations in particular.

2022 was another what if year for India, producing good results throughout the 12 months but crumbling when it mattered most. The approach in bilaterals was certainly more attacking than it was in the T20 World Cup, and with the squad they have picked here, we can expect some fireworks.

So the question for Sri Lanka will be how to keep the hosts in check. 11 months ago, they were blanked 3-0 in the T20I series in India, but won the crucial Asia Cup encounter in September. Can they produce that kind of result here or will India continue their bilateral dominance over the Lions?
