India vs Sri Lanka will play in the 2nd T20I of the Sri Lanka tour of India 2022 at Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamsala. We will cover IND vs SL Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing 11, and Fantasy Cricket Tips.
As expected India comfortably won the first game by 62 runs and were clinical with both bat and ball.
Batting first, Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan went all guns blazing and had a massive partnership of 111 runs. Kishan was the pick from the batters and played a brilliant knock of 89 runs.
In the end, Shreyas Iyer also played a fantastic knock of 57 runs and gave an excellent finish to the innings.
With the ball, Bhuvneshwar Kumar started brilliantly and picked up 2 wickets. Venkatesh Iyer was also excellent in the middle overs and picked up 2 wickets.
Spinners, Yuzi Chahal and Jadeja also bowled very well and picked up one wicket each. India will again look to dominate and seal the series in the 2nd game itself.
Sri Lanka certainly missed their star players and their batting also showed a lot of inexperience.
Opting to Bowl first, their bowlers were smashed all around the park and leaked a lot of runs.
Their fielding also looked poor and dropped crucial catches. Only Lahiru Kumara and Dasun Shanaka looked decent and picked up one wicket each.
With the bat, their openers were dismissed cheaply but Charith Asalanka played a very good knock of 53 runs and that will be their biggest positive.
They will hope for some improvement in all departments and try to level the series.
