Virat Kohli, who was at the standing at the 10th place after the conclusion of the 3-matchT20I series against the West Indies, was rested from the T20I series against Sri Lanka. Notably, Kohli had shown signs of a return to form when he hit a match-winning fifty against the West Indies in the 2nd T20I. Meanwhile, Rohit looked uncharacteristic in the Sri Lanka T20Is, getting out to Dushmantha Chameera in the last two games. He managed just 50 runs in the 3 matches against Sri Lanka.
