India clinched a thumping win in the first IT20 over Sri Lanka in the most heroic manner. With the target set for Sri Lanka, everyone considered them easy contenders of the match. But the heroics by the Indian bowlers all through the innings and especially in the death overs earned them a lead in the IT20 series (1-0). India's vice-captain Bhuvneshwar Kumar was selected to be the player of the match for his exceptional death bowling with figures stating 4 for 22 in 3.3 overs. Suryakumar Yadav and Shikhar Dhawan contributed some healthy runs to the board as they scored 50 off 34 and 46 off 36 respectively before falling off cheaply. As Deepak Chahar started the dismantling by picking up Charith Asalanka who was batting explosively and scored 44 off 26 deliveries, other bowlers joined him in the party and the tail end of the Sri Lankan lineup did not last long. Both teams started well but ended on a negative note, as India had the last laugh. The cricket match win tips today suggest another close match for the second IT20.

Rain or specifically drizzle has been a constant companion for the matches. With temperatures lying between 28°C to 32°C, the humidity would be quite high making the atmosphere quite uncomfortable. Chances of precipitation would persist throughout the match given the time of the year. Follow the online cricket match tips for more suggestions on the weather.
Over the performance of the last three ODIs and an IT20, it is quite clear that the pitch favours the bowlers. The huge boundaries make it difficult for the batsmen to clear the ropes and in that vague effort, they get caught. Apart from that, spinners have a very good advantage once the coolness of the night settles in. Stay tuned to online cricket match tips for all the updates on the pitch.
Overall Match Prediction
Given how both the teams have performed in the first IT20, it is quite clear that none of the teams would let go easily. They have the resilience and energy to hang on and bring the sting out of the situation. Cricbro today's cricket match prediction who will win points to yet another India victory as statistics shows that Sri Lanka has lost the last 17 of their 21 IT20s at the R. Premadasa International Cricket Stadium. According to cricket match win tips today, it is this poor record that makes them the underdogs. If the Indian bowlers can continue to maintain their exceptional form, minimal help from the batsmen can lead them to glory with the T20 World Cup coming ahead in October 2021.
As per Cricbro today's cricket match prediction who will win, Sri Lanka should up the ante if they want to qualify for the T20 World Cup and have a successful campaign there. Though they have a balanced team, unlike India they lack international match experience.
