IND VS SL: Deepak Chahar May Miss Sri Lanka Series Due to Right Hamstring Pull

In the event of a tear, Chahar might be a questionable starter for the IPL. For IPL, Chennai Super Kings paid a whopping Rs 14 crore in the auction to keep him. A grade one tear usually takes six weeks to fully recover and rehabilitate. He is now seen as a doubtful starter for the three-match T20 International series against Sri Lanka. The series begins on February 24 in Lucknow. He may have to go straight to Bengaluru to attend a rehabilitation program at the National Cricket Academy.
While Sri Lanka is coming off a disappointing series, India will be riding high after a 3-0 whitewash of the West Indies in the T20I series that just ended.
IND VS SL: India Becomes the Second Team to Win 100 T20Is
Team India has become the second team in the history of T20 International cricket to win 100 matches. India won the third T20I against the West Indies at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Sunday night to grab a 3-0 win in the three-match T20I series. The Indian squad reached this incredible milestone with the veteran opening batsman, Rohit Sharma, as their captain. Sharma has gone undefeated since taking over as full-time white-ball skipper of the team.
Following Virat Kohli’s decision to step down as captain after the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021, Rohit Sharma was named the new captain of the Indian side. Now with the win in the second match of the T20 series against West Indies, India became only the second side in men’s cricket history to win 100 T20Is, after Pakistan. India has played 155 matches, winning 100 (including Super Over victories), losing 51, and having 4 no-result encounters.
Pakistan has won 118 out of 189 Twenty20 Internationals. Just after the World Cup, Rohit Sharma captained India in a three-match T20 International series against the New Zealand National Cricket Team. In that series, India won 3-0. In T20Is, Rohit has an 83.33 winning % as captain.
Only Afghanistan (67.97) has a higher win percentage than India among teams that have played more than 50 T20Is. The Men in Blue have the best win % of 65.23, among the teams with at least 80 wins. India, by the way, has a higher win percentage (65.23%) than Pakistan (64.4 percent).
