SL vs IND 2nd T20I: Possible Playing 11 of Sri Lanka
Updated on: Jul 28, 2021 12:03 am IST
SL Playing 11: With an aim to level the series, Sri Lanka will be up against India in the second T20I here at R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo. The hosts are trailing 0-1 in the series thanks to some professional performance from the visitors in the first match. Sri Lanka would believe they had their moments but they failed to capitalize on them allowing India to win easily in the end. Improving the batting performance will certainly give them a better chance of winning this match. India leads Sri Lanka 14-5 in the head-to-head record in T20Is.
- Bhanuka Rajapaksa is likely to be unavailable due to finger injury. That means Ashen Bandara, who struggled in the last match, could be given another go.
- Charith Asalanka is doubtful for the match having complained about his hamstring.

SL batters need to put runs on the board for their bowlers. Avishka Fernando looked good in the last match as SL got off to a bright start. But the lack of runs in the middle order put them behind. Charith Asalanka has been in superb form and seems to be the only batsman who could take on India’s spinners at the moment. Bowlers have looked impressive with Chameera and Hasaranga leading the way in the last match. They will have a tough task in hand in restricting India’s IPL superstars.
