Sri Lanka made a surprising selection in the 1st T20I. They decided to go with Nuwan Thushara in place of young Matheesha Pathirana who had great exposure in the IPL with CSK. They are expected to correct this change in the 2nd T20I as Thushara was taken for plenty in his debut match. Apart from that, they are expected to trust their core players despite the crushing defeat in the 1st T20I.
