India bounced back from an initial bump in the three-match ODI series to win it 2-1 against Sri Lanka on Sunday. Now everyone’s attention shifts toward the shortest-format when both the teams will cross swords in the first of the three T20 matches at the Barabati Stadium, Cuttack on Wednesday. Just like the ODI series, Rohit Sharma will be leading the Blues in the absence of captain Virat Kohli. It will be the first time Rohit will be leading the Indian side in a T20 series and so would like to make an impact. The last time India played a T20I in Cuttack, they were bowled out for 92 by South Africa. That is the only T20I India have ever played on this ground. The conditions will be similar to Visakhapatnam, the venue for the third ODI which should give India a chance to be prepared for the match.
