Lokesh Rahul in rampant runscoring form

India's Lokesh Rahul loves to play his shots, whatever the format

India v Sri Lanka
Sky Cricket, 1.30pm Sunday

India have won the first two Twenty20 internationals against Sri Lanka by 93 runs and 88 runs – massive margins in 20-over contests – and things are unlikely to improve for the Lankans in Mumbai.

Another batting-friendly surface is expected at the Wankhede Stadium and the tourists conceded a total of 260-5 in Indore on Friday with Rohit Sharma blasting a century off 35 balls.

Sharma’s opening partner Lokesh Rahul has scored 61 and 89 in the first two games and he is worth backing at 3-1 to complete a hat-trick of fifties.

Rahul has made a stunning start to his T20 international career – in ten innings he has scored one century, three fifties and an unbeaten 47.

Recommendation
L Rahul to score a fifty
2pts 3-1 bet365

New Zealand v West Indies
Sky Cricket, 10pm Monday

New Zealand’s quicks blew away the West Indies in the second ODI, with Trent Boult claiming 7-34, and the Kiwis are long odds-on to complete a 3-0 series victory in Christchurch.

Ross Taylor has been in fine form with the bat and he looks a big price at 9-2 to top-score for New Zealand.

The experienced right-hander made 93, 16 and 107 not out in three Test innings against the Windies before scores of 49 not out and 57 in the first two ODIs.

With captain and star batsman Kane Williamson rested again, Taylor looks a major threat at number four.

Recommendation
R Taylor top New Zealand runscorer
1pt 9-2 Betfair, Paddy Power
