Cricket Free Tips | Sri Lanka vs India, 2021: 2nd T20I

Sri Lanka and India face off in the 2nd T20I in Colombo. After reaching 164-5 in the first IT20, India won by 38 runs. Sri Lanka was knocked out for 126 in 18.3 overs in response. To keep the series alive, the hosts must win this game.

In the first IT20, just two Sri Lanka batters scored more than 26. Bowlers Dushmantha Chameera and Wanindu Hasaranga can make a massive difference with the ball if more runs are on the board.

India’s Shikhar Dhawan and Suryakumar Yadav stood out with the bat, as did Bhuvneshwar Kumar with the ball. India is challenging to stop on this tour when the top players perform.

 

Weather
It’ll be mostly cloudy with a high of 28 degrees, and there shouldn’t be any rain delays.

 

Pitch
The pitch will be two-paced in the second half of both innings, with the ball sticking in the pitch. Spinners on both sides got a lot of turns out of the surface, while bowlers got a lot of zip out of it. In the second inning, Dew should play a role.
