India and Sri Lanka will lock horns in the second T20I of the 3-match series in Indore tonight after the first match in Guwahati produced no result. Rain played spoilsport last Sunday as fans of both the teams were left disappointed.

However, the cricket universe would look forward to the second T20I as the game will take place at the Holkar Stadium in Indore, a venue where India have never lost a single international match. Indore has hosted only a single T20I encounter till date and co-incidentally, Sri Lanka were India's opponent in that match as well.

Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul had blown away the Islanders in that game as India recorded a huge win in a lopsided match. Lasith Malinga and co. will look to avenge that loss tonight and here's how they may line up for the game.
