IND vs SL 2nd T20I Match Preview and Fantasy Predicion
Sri Lanka tour of India
2nd T20: IND vs SL
After suffering a massive loss in the hands of the Indian team in the first match, the Lankans will look to come back in this do or die match. If we take first match into consideration, then their performance was not just poor but devastating. Coming to the Indian team, Rituraj Gaikwad has once again suffered an injury and has been ruled out of the tournament. Mayank Agarwal has been added to the team but is unlikely to take any part in this match.
Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer showed their class in the last match and they would look to seal their place for the T20 World Series. Venkatesh Iyer has also been really good in the past couple of series but all eyes will be on Ravindra Jadeja. Rohit Sharma promoted Jadeja to 2nd down in the last match and also in the post-match press conference said he will be promoted like this in the future games. So, it will be interesting to see how Jadeja does in this match and how critical he can be in the upper middle order.
The test for Bhuvneshwar Kumar will continue. He did well in the last match and he needs to get better and better as players like Mohammed Shami, Deepak Chahar is not part of the series. Thus, Bhuvi is getting an extended run in the team which he needs to cash in. Spinners have also done relatively well and the team looks quite settled before the mega tournament.
Charith Asalanka of Sri Lanka played really well in the last match and he will hope that his teammates will get inspired to get better in this match. They looked tired in the last match and they should get better to show some kind of fight to play well if not to win.
