After having lost to Pakistan in their first Super Four match, India would be looking to clinch a win in the remaining two matches to have a shot at the final berth. Sri Lanka, however, is coming off a fantastic win against Afghanistan in their Super Four opener.
India vs Sri Lanka Team News:
India has been chopping and changing to their playing XI for quite a while now, something that proved detrimental against Pakistan. So far Ravindra Jadeja and Avesh Khan have been involved in injury with the former having been ruled out of the entirety of the continental tournament. India would be looking to bring back Dinesh Karthik and Avesh Khan in place of Ravi Bishnoi, Axar Patel and Rishabh Pant to bring stability to the team.
Sri Lanka, after getting thumped by Afghanistan in their first match, rose back mightily to not just qualify for the Super Four but also took revenge for their loss against Afghanistan. They have now chased down 183 and 175 in consecutive matches and look very impressive going into the next match.
India vs Sri Lanka Probable XI:
India Probable XI: Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik, Axar Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Avesh Khan, Yuzvendra Chahal, Arshdeep Singh
Sri Lanka Probable XI: Pathum Nissanka, Kusal Mendis, Charith Asalanka, Danushka Gunathilaka, Dasun Shanaka (c), Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne

The Dubai International Stadium pitch slightly favours the fast bowlers, but the batters have become increasingly aware of the bounce and have done better from the first few games. The weather report suggests a clear sky with a temperature of 32 degrees Celcius. The team winning the toss would be looking to bowl first.
