For Sri Lanka, Pathum Nissanka has replaced Isuru Udana in the XI
That India are forced to pick from their net bowlers is because nine of their players have been put in isolation, after Krunal Pandya tested positive for Covid-19 on Tuesday, and eight of his close contacts have had to go into isolation. India played all 11 available players from the original 20-man squad, on Wednesday, but with Saini having seemingly hurt his shoulder attempting a catch, they have had to dip into their net-bowling reserves. Warrier has 53 domestic T20 wickets, with an economy rate of 7.29.
The series is tied 1-1 at present. There is a chance rain could interrupt play, but there should be enough cricket to constitute a match.
