SL vs IND Dream11 Prediction, Probable Playing XI, and Fantasy Cricket Tips for 2nd T20I Match, India tour of Sri Lanka, 2021.
Sri Lanka and India will play in the 2nd T20I on 28th July 2021. We will cover Sri Lanka vs India Dream11 Prediction.
SL vs IND 2nd T20I Match Preview
After a brilliant victory in the 3rd ODI, Sri Lanka are back to disappointments as they lost the 1st T20I by 38 runs. Avishka Fernando has continued his excellent form and gave a good start, but Minod Bhauka and Dhananjaya de Silva struggled in this game. Charith Asalanka performed brilliantly on his debut but was unlucky to miss his fifty by just six runs.
The bowlers performed consistently throughout the tour and have not allowed the Indians to post a massive total. Wanindu Hasaranga and Dushmantha Chameera are the crucial wicket-takers and picked up two wickets each in the last match, and Karunaratne managed to pick up a wicket as well.
Sri Lanka needs to improve their bowling performance if they want to fight India’s tough fight in the T20I series. The bowlers have improved, but the batting performance has degraded. SL needs to make a comeback in the 2nd T20I, or else they will lose the series.
India continues their momentum from ODIs to the T20I series as they win the first match comfortably by 38 runs. Shikhar Dhawan batted well, almost scoring a fifty, but his partner Prithvi Shaw who made his T20I debut was out for a golden duck. At No.3, Samson once again failed to convert his excellent start, and Hardik Pandya’s struggle with the bat continues.
Surya Kumar Yadav is in exceptional form in the middle-order as he scored a fifty, and Ishan Kishan scored some quick runs and provided a good finish. Except for the 3rd ODI, Indian bowlers have been in a great rhythm and troubling the opposition batsmen a lot.
Both the pacers, Bhuvneshwar and Chahar, were lethal in the last match, as they picked up four and two wickets, respectively. The remaining bowlers also did an excellent job of picking up one wicket each. India looks very confident, and they are likely to win this series.
