India vs Sri Lanka 2nd T20: The second T20 match between India and Sri Lanka will be played today at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. In the first T20 match played on Sunday, India defeated the hosts by 38 runs. Now the eyes of Team India will be on capturing the series to win this second match. On the other hand, Sri Lanka’s team will try to level the series by winning this match.
India’s middle order disappointed in the first T20. At the same time, all-rounder Hardik Pandya was also not seen in the rhythm. He was also seen in some pain during the first T20. His form and fitness can become a matter of concern for the team management. In such a situation, captain Shikhar Dhawan and coach Rahul Dravid can rest him in the second T20.
Suryakumar Yadav will once again expect a big innings
In the last match, Suryakumar Yadav batted brilliantly and played a fast innings of 50 runs. Even today a big innings will be expected from him. Friends, today India will expect a quick start from both its openers Prithvi Shaw and Dhawan. India’s team may be full of young players, but the experience of playing in the IPL is helping them a lot. On the other hand, Sri Lanka’s batting looks very weak compared to India. In the last match, Charit Aslanka batted brilliantly for the team. According to the information, he has hamstring problem. In such a situation, he can be out of today’s match.
Sri Lanka have also disappointed in the first T20 after losing the ODI series. The Sri Lankan team has so far failed to impress with its performance. In this match he will have to play with a different strategy. Only then will she be able to give competition to Team India.
Bhuvneshwar Kumar will lead the bowling
Vice-captain Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled brilliantly in the first T20. He played an important role in the team’s victory by taking four wickets. This time too, the command of India’s bowling unit will be in his hands. Kunal Pandya and Varun Chakravati, who performed well in the last match, are also set to play in this match.
Batting will not be easy against spinners
Like the first T20, both swing and spin can be seen in this match too. Later on the pitch can also become slow, so only the team scoring maximum runs in the powerplay will benefit. It will not be easy to bat against the spinners here. Clouds can be seen in the sky but most of the weather is expected to be clear.
Probable playing XI of India- Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan (captain), Sanju Samson, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Ishan Kishan (wicketkeeper), Krunal Pandya, Varun Chakraborty, Yuzvendra Chahal, Deepak Chahar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
