Match : IND vs SL, 2nd T20I
Tournament : Sri Lanka tour of India, 2020
Date : Tuesday, January 07, 2020
Time : 7:00 PM IST 1:30 PM GMT
Venue : Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore
PITCH & CONDITION
Weather : Indore’s weather forecast for Tuesday is quite positive. It will be slightly cloudy, but there are no chances of any rain. Humidity will be around 55% and the weather condition is ideal to play cricket.
Pitch : Holkar Stadium has a flat wicket and short boundaries. The short boundaries coupled with the nature of the pitch make it extremely enjoyable for the batsmen.
India : The match was abandoned on Sunday, and India would most likely stick with their XI that they had announced for Guwahati.
India Probable Playing XI : Shikhar Dhawan, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli (C), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (WK), Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Navdeep Saini
Sri Lanka : Angelo Mathews has been recalled to the Sri Lanka squad but he was not named in the starting XI for the first game.
Sri Lanka also didn’t pick Niroshan Dickwella in their playing XI in Guwahati. Avishka Fernando was slotted at the top of the order with Danushka Gunathilaka.
Dickwella will be on the bench in Indore too. In Nuwan Pradeep’s absence, Isuru Udana returned to the team. Kusal Perera will keep wickets and will bat at no. 3 . Angelo Mathews and Dasun Shanaka will be Sri Lanka’s finishers.
Sri Lanka Probable Playing XI : Kusal Mendis, Niroshan Dickwella, Kusal Perera (wk), Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Angelo Mathews, Dhananjaya de Silva, Wanindu Hasaranga, Lasith Malinga (c), Lakshan Sandakan, Isuru Udana, Lahiru Kumara
India have rested Rohit Sharma for the series, but still boast a very strong line-up – led by Virat Kohli and featuring fit-again Jasprit Bumrah. They are difficult to beat on home soil and they should be too strong to be able to beat them in the 2nd T20I to take a 1-0 lead in the series.
