Cloudy weather and high humidity will persist in Colombo as India locks horns with Sri Lanka in the second T20I at the R. Premadasa Stadium today.
The first match saw the visitors register a comprehensive 38-run victory, and they will look to seal the second game as well, just as they did in the ODI leg.
For Sri Lanka, it is an opportunity to equal the series and head into a humdinger of a third match. But for the most part, this series is all about getting a chance to test their mettle ahead of the ICC World T20.
Colombo weather forecast: Cloudy at 26 degrees
Although there are thunderstorms predicted, it is unlikely to bother the game slated to start at 8 pm IST. The Weather Channel estimates the temperature to be a pleasant 26 degrees and a humidity of 88%.
The weather has been pretty steady with occasional showers, as is usually expected in the country this time of the year and the pattern will continue.
The report suggests there will be some rain coming in around 11 pm IST. However, like the last game, we can hope that the match will have reached its closing stages.
