That's all we have for now. Hope you've enjoyed our coverage of the match. India once again showed their dominance and captain Kohli will be very happy with how things are panning out for the team ahead of this year's T20 World Cup. 

We will be back again for the ODI series against Australia. Do join us then. Thank you and goodbye! 

22:41 (IST)

Virat Kohli: "Good start to this year. We started on the right track. Two clinical performances so very happy. We saw guys who can turn up for the team and do the job for us. (Very Happy) with batting first and setting totals. All three (Dhawan, Rohit and Rahul) are pretty strong players. It's all about a team game. I don't endorse this idea of putting people in the team against each other."  

22:39 (IST)

Navdeep Saini: I used to find it very different to bowl with the white ball as I was only bowling with red ball but I am feeling better now. My bowling partners also help me with suggestions and ideas. Speed is natural to me but now I am paying attention to my diet, eating and sleeping, training. 

22:37 (IST)

Navdeep Saini is the Man of the Series

22:36 (IST)

Shardul Thakur is the Man of the Match for taking two wickets and making unbeaten 22 runs

22:36 (IST)

Shardul Thakur: "I believe I have the ability (to bat) and I've been practising well. The idea is that if I can contribute runs at number 8, it'll be good for the team. With my action, I can bowl good outswingers, so initially the idea is to swing the ball."

22:33 (IST)

Lasith Malinga, losing captain: Out top-four batsmen got out very early, we had a recovery in the middle but by then it was too late. We need to learn to handle situations better. We have to back our players and try to get most out of them. All teams are using wrist spinners so we have Sandakan and Hasaranga. Which is good. 

22:24 (IST)

‪This is India’s 12th consecutive bilateral series win against Sri Lanka across formats. The last time when they lost a bilateral series against them was in 2008.

Game, set and match for India. Another completely professional performance, another T20I series win for India. Think the bowling efforts of Saini and Thakur have been the major takeaways for the hosts from this series. Also with both Rahul and Shikhar scoring runs at the top, the team management will now have a healthy headache when Rohit will comeback in the upcoming five-T20I series in New Zealand.

India vs Sri Lanka, LIVE Cricket Score, 3rd T20I at Pune, Latest Updates: Saini finishes the proceedings as Malinga top edges his shot to mid-off fielder. India win the match by 78 runs and take the series 2-0.

Preview: After winning the second T20I by seven wickets, Virat Kohli's team will now look to seal the series when they face Sri Lanka in the final match of the series in Pune on Friday.

Sri Lanka, led by pacer Lasith Malinga, didn't quite turn up in the previous match. Batting first at Indore, the Lankans ended up scoring only 142 runs in the 20 overs, losing nine wickets in the process. Their bowling attack also failed to impress as Indians chased down the target with 15 balls to spare.

Ahead of the last match, Kohli and the team management will be tempted to test their bench strength. The likes of Manish Pandey and Sanju Samson have been warming the bench for a long time and it shouldn't come as a surprise if Kohli features them in the playing XI. Samson hasn't played even once since he made his comeback in the Bangladesh series.

India's bowling department looks sorted with pacers Shardul Thakur and Navdeep Saini taking the responsibility and delivering in the last match. Jasprit Bumrah made his return from injury in this series, but for him, things didn't go as per plans in Indore. He ended up conceding 32 runs in his four overs. Kohli will be hoping that his premier strike bowler gets back to his best in Pune.

The visitors will have their task cut out in the final match. The difference in quality between both the team is telling and on top of that, they have lost all-rounder Isuru Udana to injury. Malinga has to lead from the front and make sure his team puts up a decent performance.

The first T20I in Guwahati was abandoned due to rain.
