  • Sri Lanka vs India Dream11

    Sri Lanka vs India Dream11: It is now time for the 2nd T20I match between the host Sri Lankan team and India rescheduled to be played on 28 July at the R.Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. With Krunal Pandya testing positive for Covid-19, the game that was originally supposed to happen on 27 July had to be postponed. A total of 8 India players who have been identified as close contacts of Krunal, will miss the last 2 T20I matches. After losing the third and final ODI, India came back strongly to register a brilliant 38-run win in the first T20I against Sri Lanka. India also won the three-match ODI series with a 2-1 scoreline. On the other hand, hosts Sri Lanka would want to put an improved performance especially with the bat as they were fine with the ball in the previous match. India will be aiming to seal the three-match T20I in their favour.

    Pitch Report: The pitch at the R.Premadasa Stadium was really sporting in the first match and the same will be the case in this game as well. However, ball won’t come nicely onto the bat and there will some decent help for the spinners. Thus, bowling first will be the best option on this track.
