Team India will begin the home season with a three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka starting on 3 January 2023. India has been struggling in T20Is recently due to inconsistent selection.

This Sri Lankan series provides an opportunity for some of the youngsters to get a chance in the Indian team with their aggressive approach. India will be looking to give a platform for those who performed well during the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy tournament and create pressure on the established players.

Here we look at the 3 Indian players who deserve a chance in the T20Is against Sri Lanka

#1 Prithvi Shaw

Prithvi Shaw is an explosive batter that can create pressure on the opponent bowlers right from the word go. He has shown his attacking skills during the 2022/23 Syed Mushtaq Ali season.

The right-handed opener Shaw played a key role for Mumbai in helping them win the title. He was the second leading run-getter in the tournament with 332 runs from 10 matches (10 innings) including 1 century and 1 half-century with a stunning strike rate of 181.42. He took the attack playing aggressive shots right from ball one.

With no KL Rahul or Rohit Sharma unlikely to feature in this series, it will be an ideal opportunity to give Prithvi Shaw a chance to prosper. He has played just 1 T20I for Team India and was dismissed without opening his account.

#2 Shubman Gill

Shubman Gill is another explosive batter that can be given chance in the T20I format against Sri Lanka. He had a tremendous year in 2022 for Punjab during the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy tournament.

During the SMAT season, Gill played a total of 6 matches and scored 260 runs with 1 century and 1 half-century. His best score came against Karanakta 126 helping Punjab to post a massive total. He scored his maiden ODI and Test century in 2022.

Gill has played any T20I matches for Team India. With 3 T20I matches against Sri Lanka starting on 3 January, it could be an ideal opportunity to try him out with Prithvi Shaw.

#3 Sanju Samson

Sanju Samson deserves a chance for the Indian Team in the T20I series against Sri Lanka. He has played 16 T20I matches (15 innings) and scored 296 with the best score of 77.

With the ability he possesses with his hitting abilities, the series against Sri Lanka will be an ideal chance for him to prove his worth. He played his last T20I match against West Indies on August 7 2022.

Rishabh Pant is having a torrid time in the T20I format for Team India and Sanju Samson could be given a chance to stake a claim.
