Sri Lanka Form and Team News

After a big loss in the first T20I, Sri Lanka might opt to tweak their starting XI for the all-important encounter. 

With just a few months remaining in the International Cricket Council (ICC) T20 World Cup, the team management will be concerned about the recent performances of the Islanders in the 20-over format where they’ve suffered 10 defeats in the last 11 outings. 

The batting was once again a big letdown for the home team on Sunday and the eyes will be on the players to produce a much better display in the next fixture. 

In the batting department, the hosts will be heavily relying on the likes of in-form opening batter Avishka Fernando, wicketkeeper-batsman Dhananjaya de Silva, left-hander Charith Asalanka and captain Dasun Shanaka to score the bulk of the runs and help the team in posting a respectable total on the board which will give bowlers something to work with. 

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Isuru Udana, Dushmantha Chameera along with the spin duo of Wanindu Hasaranga and Akila Dananjaya to produce timely breakthroughs.

India Form and Team News

After producing a near-perfect performance in the first T20I, India are unlikely to make too many changes in the starting XI for the second fixture. 

In the batting department, the visitors will be relying heavily on the likes of captain Shikhar Dhawan, young opener Prithvi Shaw, wicketkeeper-batsman Sanju Samson, in-form middle-order batter Suryakumar Yadav and hard-hitting all-rounder Hardik Pandya to score the bulk of the runs and put the home team under pressure. 

On the bowling front, the onus will be on the likes of pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar along with the spin trio of Krunal Pandya, Varun Chakravarthy and Yuzvendra Chahal to dismantle the home team’s batting lineup.

Our Tipsters Angle

The first T20I proved to be another example of dominance from team India who have an edge over Sri Lanka. 

Despite restricting the visitors to a par total of 164 after being put in to bat first, the home team never really looked like chasing the target and were bowled out in the 19th over. 

With nothing to suggest that things will change in the upcoming matches, the prediction is for the Dhawan-led side to secure a series win on Tuesday.

Tip 1- Shikhar Dhawan to continue his merry ways with the bat for India

Left-hander continued his excellent form with the bat in the opening game of the T20I series. He played exceedingly well and scored 46 runs off 36 balls with the help of four boundaries and one six.

Given his excellent innings in the series opener, expect opener Shikhar Dhawan to score 25 runs or more in the 2nd [email protected].

Tip 2- Wanindu Hasaranga to lead the bowling charge for Sri Lanka

Leg-spinner Wanindu Hasaranga has been standout bowler for Sri Lanka for the past couple of years. In the series opener, Hasaranga was the pick of the bowlers and finished with figures of 2 for 28 in his four overs.

Since Jan 2020, Wanindu Hasaranga has been leading wicket-taker for Sri Lanka in the 20-over format. He has claimed 16 wickets in 10 innings at an average of 14.62 with an economy rate of 6.00. Given his splendid bowling performance in series opener, we can expect spinner Wanindu Hasaranga to pick one wicket or more in this [email protected]


Expect India to beat Sri Lanka and go 2-0 up in the three-match T20I series.
