What lies ahead in the T20I series?

The Sri Lanka team have a very important match to play on rescheduled 2nd T20I. It may make or break the team’s confidence leading up to an important T20I series and World Cup. For the time being, they will be without their top players like Perera, Dickwella, Gunathilaka, and Mendis. The team needs to perform well as a whole unit like in the 3rd ODI to clinch a win.

On the other side, Indian team would look to win the 2nd T20I and gain confidence for the upcoming series/tournaments. Some of the players might get an opportunity in the senior national T20 team.
