Power packed Indian side is going to lock horns with the under strengthen Sri Lankan side in the first T20 International match in Pune this evening. After the 3-0 white wash in Australia, the confident Indian side looks to continue their winning streak in this 3-match T20 International series.
Although the sides may be unmatched for the contest but the weather seems to be perfect for cricket.
The series is like a practice session for the Indian side for the upcoming T20 World Cup. If India wants to retain their number 1 spot, they will have to win the series.
The first T20I is a clash of the unmatched. The India is in formidable form and will go in the series with full strength with just Virat Kohli benched. Whereas the Sri Lankan side will have many significant absentees like Lasith Malinga, Angelo Mathews, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Nuwan Kulasekara and Rangana Herath.
The game will commence at 07:30 pm with a mildly warm temperature of 28 degree Celsius. As the game goes on, the temperature is likely to drop to a perfect 21-22 degree Celsius. The humidity around the venue will be around 48-55%.
Light winds at 10-12 Kmph from Western direction may make things slightly difficult for the bowlers. But the newly built stadium and a dry pitch will help the spinners later on. Dry and clear sky will help the batsmen score those valuable runs.
Overall, comfortable and dry weather awaits an unmatched clash.
