Watch India vs Sri Lanka 2016 T20 Series Live!

Watch Ind vs SL 2016 T20 Cricket Live Streaming

India has a lot to cheer about. After a disappointing ODI series where the scoreline didn't do any justice to the team's performance, India bounced back hard to win the T20 series 3-0 against the mighty Australians. Change in fortunes! Dhoni who was struggling as a captain now looks all set for the upcoming T20 world cup 2016. Before that India plays a bilateral T20 cricket series against Sri Lankans. Later the same teams would also face each other in the prestigious Asia Cup cricket tournament. This post will give you details on the T20 cricket series.

The India vs Sri Lanka T20 series 2016 live streaming and telecast can be enjoyed on HotStar live match app and Star Sports HD TV network in India. The details for schedule and venues are as follows:

India vs Sri Lanka 1st T20 match - Pune - 9 Feb 2016
India vs Sri Lanka 2nd T20 match - Ranchi - 12 Feb 2016
India vs Sri Lanka 3rd T20 match - Vishakhapatnam - 14 Feb 2016

This cricket series would serve a good preparation opportunity for the upcoming T20 world cup. India will play hosts in the world cup whereas Sri Lanka would be participating along with other teams. India has already gained good amount of confidence after winning the T20 matches in Australia. They got good learning of tackling bounces and yorakers. While the spin attack of Australia didn't produce too much of a quality, Indian batsmen can gain some confidence against spin when they face some quality spinners of Sri Lanka. This would be an overall good preparation for India ahead of the T20 world cup.

For Sri Lanka, this would be a tester. They were enjoying the top position in the ICC rankings before they toured to New Zealand. After facing defeats they have slide down in the rankings. They are the defending T20 world cup champions and they need to strive hard to retain the title. First, they need to gain some wins here in this tour to India.

Virat Kohli has a dream run in Australia. He scored loads of runs. Indian bowlers too did a good job in the T20 arena. Virat is rested for this T20 series. Pawan Negi gets a call! The full Indian squad is listed below for your reference:
MS Dhoni (Captain and Wicket Keeper), Rohit Sharma, Ravichandran Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Ashish Nehra, Harbhajan Singh, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Shikhar Dhawan, Ajinkya Rahane, Manish Pandey, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Pawan Negi.

Watch India vs Australia T20 Series 2016 Live!

We witness one of the bilateral ODI series between India and Australia. The scoreline didn't do any justice to the quality of cricket that was played. We will discuss about this later in this post as we need to shift the impetus first towards T20 International cricket. Indian team gets into some serious business of T20 cricket from hereon till the end of T20 world cup 2016. So we can say India's preparation towards the ICC T20 world cup 2016 begins! Watch India vs Australia T20 live streaming cricket and telecast on HotStar mobile app and Star Sports HD TV network in India. Enjoy live action with Hindi and English commentary. Meanwhile U19 Cricket World Cup 2016 live streaming will also be available on HotStar in India. MCL 2020 live streaming and telecast can be enjoyed on Sony Six, Sony Liv and Sony ESPN HD! Lot of cricket, isn't it?

Talking about the ODI series, both the teams played equally well. The only difference was the Indian team couldn't capitalise on opportunities while Australians grabbed them with both hands. None of the matches could be terms one-sided but at the same time Australia cruised to victories in first two. 3000 plus runs were scored in five ODI matches out of which 400 plus were scored by Rohit Sharma. He deserved the Man of the Series award. Manish Pandey showed his skills in the last ODI to take India home!

Virat Kohli too is in a supreme form! He scored a lot of runs. Ajinkya Rahane is injured and hence he was out of picture. The Indian team will have changes in the T20 squad with the likes of Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh and Ashish Nehra. As far as the bowling is concerned, a lot would rely on the likes of Ashwin and Jadeja. They have been out of form in the ODI series. 

For Australia, skipper Smith, Warner, Marsh, Bailey are all scoring runs. Infact the flat pitches are enabling easy runs for the batsmen. Tough time for the bowlers! One who bowls the heart out will get wickets. Faulkner hasn't been too impressive. Hastings and Richardson did a good job so far.

Here is the schedule for T20 series:
26 January 2016, India vs Australia 1st T20 match at Adelaide Oval, Adelaide
29 January 2016, India vs Australia 2nd T20 match at MCG, Melbourne
31 January 2016, India vs Australia 3rd T20 match at SCG, Sydney

Australia squad for T20 series:
Aaron Finch (captain), Shaun Tait, Andrew Tye, Matthew Wade, Scott Boland, Cameron Boyce, James Faulkner, John Hastings, Travis Head, Nathan Lyon, Chris Lynn, Glenn Maxwell, Shaun Marsh, Kane Richardson, Steve Smith, David Warner, Shane Watson.

India squad for T20 series:
Mahendra Singh Dhoni (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Gurkeerat Singh, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohammed Shami, Harbhajan Singh, Umesh Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishi Dhawan and Ashish Nehra. 

Update - India has nailed the series 3-0 and topped the ICC t20 ranking chart. India will now lock horns with Sri Lanka for a bilateral T20 series. This will be followed by Asia Cup 2016. The long wait would be over for the biggest ICC event of the year. Watch ICC T20 world cup 2016 live streaming and telecast on Star Sports and HotStar.

Virat Kohli has had a great time so far leading the Indian team in test cricket. Many of the fans are viewing him as a full time captain for all three formats. India's most successful captain MS Dhoni is still in play and very much eager to retain his good form as a captain. No one can forget the wonders he has done for team India. And he is well known to bounce back hard. His captaincy skills are at the best when India plays in an ICC event. So let us wait and see how good the team performs in Australia and later in the Asia Cup 2016 and Twenty20 world cup 2016.

Another exciting news is about the team selection for India. Yuvraj Singh makes a comeback to the T20 scene. He is picked in the squad. Surprisingly he would have been a better choice for the ODI cricket but he was picked for the shortest format. Remembering his six sixes in an over in the inaugural T20 world cup in 2007, the fans would be eager to see if he can recreate some magic in T20 cricket again.

Australia is playing a test series against West Indies when this article is being written. The Australian team would love to succeed against India for a psychological advantage when they travel to India for the T20 world cup.

Keep reading as we would write more about the series as well as MCL 2020 and U19 cricket world cup that begins soon this month. Just an update - MCL 2020 live streaming will be available on Sony Six and Sony Liv where you would be able to enjoy the retired cricket stars back in action.

Hot Cricket Star India vs South Africa 2015 Paytm Series

India vs South Africa 2015 cricket series kicked off in style and surprise as the home team lost the T20 series. Things seem to have settled down in the ODI series. We still have a test series to go! A lot of quality cricket ahead. Watch India vs South Africa 2015 Paytm Freedom series live streaming and telecast on Star Sports and HotStar live match mobile app.

Who is the hot star in the ODI cricket series between India and South Africa?

Well, it has to be Virat Kohli from the Indian team and Dale Steyn from the South African team. We aren't judging players as 'hot' based on their looks. By 'hot', we mean cricketers who would have most number of eye balls set on them. The another contender from the South African front has to be AB de Villiers.

Virat Kohli's bat seems to be silent. He is due for a big knock. He didn't have a big score to his name in the T20 series and until the first two ODIs, he looks out of touch. Meanwhile South African AB de Villiers is in sparkling form right from match 1. He has knocked Indian bowlers all over the parks he played so far. Dale Steyn is the most feared quick bowler in the world. One should not judge him by the number of wickets he takes, but he should be judged by his great line, length and pace.

MS Dhoni is the coolest customer amongst the two teams. After facing severe criticism, he proved his worth with a brilliant 90+ score at Indore to give India first win in this series. The second coolest candidate has to be Ajinkya Rahane. He didn't get a place in the T20 series. He looks very consistent in the ODI series. Even Hashim Amla does a silent yet great job in batting for the visitors.

Rohit Sharma hammered a ton in the first T20 match. He did the same in the opening ODI match. He looks in golden touch and due for few more big ones. R Ashwin is doing a great job with the ball. Unfortunately he is out of the ODI series due to side strain.

The test series (Mahatma Gandhi-Nelson Mandela series) is going to be enthralling. Two strong teams on flat pitches would not only score big but toil hard to earn wickets. It would be great to see how the likes of Ishant Sharma, Bhuvaneshwar Kumar, Dale Steyn, Morkel, etc would perform. 

There is a lot good and hot cricket ahead! Enjoy every ball live on HotStar and Star Sports HD!
