IND vs SL: Possible India Playing 11 for 2nd Test, Players Stats for Today’s Dream11 Team Prediction


IND Playing 11: The second and final Test between India and Sri Lanka will be played from March 12 at M.Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. The hosts registered a huge 222 runs and an innings victory in the opening test and have taken a 1-0 lead. It was a near-perfect game for India as it marked Rohit Sharma’s captaincy journey in the longest format with a victory. The new number 03 batsman Hanuma Vihari and flambouyant wicketkeeper batter Rishabh Pant scored the fifties while star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was simply outstanding. Premium off-spinner R Ashwin went past Kapil Dev’s 434 wicket tally to become the second most wicket-taker for India in Test and Rohit Sharma & Co will be aiming to continue the momentum and clean sweep the Lankans with a win in Bengaluru.
