Sri Lanka: Kusal Perera, who took the game away from Indians single-handedly in the first game, also top-scored against Bangladesh.
India: Shikhar Dhawan is the leading run-scorer in the series with 145 runs at an average of 72.50. Yuzvendra Chahal and Jaydev Unadkat are key to India’s bowling.
Sri Lanka would try to put pressure on India after they trumped the latter in the series opener. On the other hand, India would come out positive after a clinical win against Bangladesh. It is expected to be an evenly contested game.
