IND vs SL Dream11 Prediction | 2nd Test | Axar Patel Returns

India vs Sri Lanka will play in the 2nd Test of the Sri Lanka tour of India 2022 at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru. We will cover IND vs SL Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.


Team India completely outplayed the visitors in the first test and won by an innings and 222 runs. 

Sir Ravindra Jadeja was at his best in the last game and scored 175 runs with the bat and also picked up 9 wickets with the ball. 

Again all eyes will be on King Kohli’s 71st Hundred and he has good numbers in pink ball tests. Hanuma Vihari scored a well deserved fifty in the last game and will again be desperate to score runs. 

A one sided contest can be expected again in Bengaluru and spinners will be the key as usual. 

Sri Lanka:

Sri Lanka is looking low on confidence and are unable to put up a fight against the hosts. 

Their batters looked clueless in the last game and were throwing their wickets. With the ball, Lasith Embuldeniya will be their key man. Pathum Nissanka is their key batsman and looked in good touch in the last game but is ruled out for this game.

Sri Lanka will look to put up a fight and take the game as deep as possible. A draw will also be considered as a victory for them.
