Hello and welcome to our Live coverage of the one-off T20I between India and Sri Lanka at R Premadasa Cricket Stadium in Colombo.

Even so, there were no sure hints coming forth as the Indian team enjoyed an additional off day ahead of the game and did not practice.

By the way, if the rain is still there, then Virat Kohli and Company will have to make history by winning all the matches on the tour.

India's bid for a historic triple clean sweep over Sri Lanka could be spoilt by rain as the teams were getting ready to face in the lone Twenty20 worldwide tonight (September 6). In fact, the Delhi-based cricketer equalled his own record of most consecutive fifty-plus scores against a team in T20Is.

Princess Mako to lose her royal status after marrying her long-time boyfriend
The 25-year-old is expected to announce her engagement to former university classmate Kei Komuro , who works at a law firm. However, news of the engagement - and Mako giving up her royal status - didn't make headlines until earlier this year.

This is the last chance for the host nation to cool down their fans by at least a win in the T20I format. The India cricket team played their Test matches and ODIs with the same lineups. MS Dhoni started a culture in which players had to field well to cement their place in the playing XI. Upul Tharanga was first to go when the score was 23.

Because of the Dhawan's injury absence, it is expected that the Kohli will walk down to the ground along with Rohit Sharma. This meant they played three frontline spinners in Axar, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, and for the second successive game left out the allrounder Hardik Pandya. It was his fourth consecutive half-century in T20Is against Sri Lanka, and in doing so, he became the fastest batsman to score 15000 global runs across formats in 333 innings, improving Hashim Amla's record of 336 innings.

Sri Lanka squad: Upul Tharanga (captain), Angelo Mathews, Niroshan Dickwella, Dilshan Munaweera, Dasun Shanaka, Milinda Siriwardana, Wanidu Hasaranga, Akila Dananjaya, Jeffrey Vandersay, Isuru Udana, Seekkuge Prasanna, Thisara Perera, Lasith Malinga, Suranga Lakmal and Vikum Sanjaya. For India, Yuzvendra Chahal took 3 wickets, while Kuldeep Yadav took 2 wickets.

India: Sony Ten 3, Sony Ten 3 HD, Sony Six, Sony Six HD. There will be an inspection at 7 pm as it was raining some time back.
