As per IND vs SL Today Match Prediction, the wicket at M. Chinnaswamy helps both batters and bowlers. The ball comes nicely onto the bat, at the same time, the fast deck aids pacers in getting the desired bounce and pace. Spinners are likely to dictate the game at later stages.
Post the first Test, Axar Patel was added to Team India’s squad in place of Kuldeep Yadav. He’s set to make his way in the playing XI for Jayant Yadav, who was wicketless throughout the last outing.
As far as the Sri Lankan cricket team is concerned, pacer Dushmantha Chameera has been ruled out of the second Test. The right-arm quick wasn’t a part of the first Test either and is currently being monitored for the workload. Also, Pathum Nissanka won’t be available for this match as he has aggravated an old back injury. In his absence, either Kusal Mendis or Dinesh Chandimal would find themselves in the playing 11.
IND Playing XI: Rohit Sharma (c), Mayank Agarwal, Hanuma Vihari, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (wk), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah
