Team News

India

India had an amazing series win against West Indies at home recently. They won 4 and lost one out of their last 5 games. In a total of 16 T20Is played between both the teams, India have won 11 while Sri Lanka won 5. India’s limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma and Mohammad Shami are not part of the series though.

Opener Shikhar Dhawan is back and he will open the innings with KL Rahul. Rishabh Pant, Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer will be there in the middle order. For all-rounder’s slot, there is Shivam Dube. Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav and Washington Sundar are the spinners whereas Jasprit Bumrah, Shardul Thakur, Navdeep Saini named as the pacers in the team.

As far as playing XI is concerned, Yuzvendra Chahal might replace of Navdeep Saini as the game will be in Indore. After the rained out match at Guwahati, India will start fresh and also try to stamp their authority as well.

Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli (C), Shreyas Iyer, Shivam Dube, Rishabh Pant (WK), Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Navdeep Saini/Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah

Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka are not in a good place as they lost to Australia recently. However, Kusal Mendis will open the game as usual. Kusal Perera and Bhanuka Rajapaksa will be there in the middle order. Angelo Mathews can play an important role in the batting order while Lasith Malinga and Lakshan Sandakan will lead the bowling attack for Sri Lanka.

But they have backed the current form of the players rather than the reputation as they benched both Angelo Mathews and Niroshan Dickwella in the first game. It will be interesting to see who they choose for this game.

Pitch and Conditions

The pitch helps the batsmen. Last time when India took on Sri Lanka in this venue is the only T20I played here. Rohit Sharma smashed a blitzy 43-ball 118 there and helped his side to post 260 runs on the board. The weather is good for the game although there is a little chance of rain in the evening. The temperature will be around 21-23 Degrees Celsius during the match as well.
