The second T20I between Sri Lanka (SL) and India (IND) is set to take place at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Wednesday.

Riding on the exploits of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Suryakumar Yadav, India landed the first blow in the series despite a spirited batting performance from the Sri Lankans. The hosts will be looking to level the series with a better performance and will bank on Wanindu Hasaranga, who was the pick of the bowlers in the previous game.

IND vs SL, 2nd T20

Date and Time: 28th July 2021, at 8:00 PM IST

Venue: R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo


Pitch Report

A good batting track beckons at the R Premadasa Stadium, with the spinners likely to get some help off the surface. As seen in the previous game, there is ample swing on offer for the pacers. With dew playing a factor, the bowlers will struggle as the match progresses. The pitch should ideally get better to bat on, with both teams looking to chase upon winning the toss. 170 should be a good total at the venue.


Today's IND vs SL Dream11 match top picks

Wicket-keeper

Ishan Kishan: The southpaw has had a stellar start to his T20I career, although he couldn't get going in the death overs in the previous game. Watch out for his explosive shots as he seeks to seal a place in the Indian T20I side.

Batsmen

Devdutt Padikkal: Likely to make his debut, Devdutt Padikkal is one of India's best batting prospects in the shortest format. With an eye for a big score, expect the southpaw to make a mark in this very first appearance for Team India.

Avishka Fernando: A popular pick in the IND vs SL Dream11 teams, Avishka Fernando couldn't translate his ODI form into the shortest format in the first encounter. Given his eye for a big score in the T20Is, expect the Sri Lankan opener to make amends on Tuesday.

All-rounders

Wanindu Hasaranga: Sri Lanka's X-factor with the ball, Wanindu Hasaranga has been their best bowler this year. With a brilliant googly and exceptional power-hitting ability towards the backend of an innings, Hasaranga is certainly a must-have in any IND vs SL Dream11 team.

Hardik Pandya: Perhaps India's best fast-bowling all-rounder, Hardik has flattered to deceive on this tour. But a player of his caliber can't be kept quiet for too long with a big performance likely on the horizon for the lanky all-rounder.

Bowlers

Bhuvneshwar Kumar: India's lead pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar silenced his critics with a man-of-the-match performance in the previous game. With ample swing on offer and his clever use of variations in death overs, Bhuvi is one to keep tabs on ahead of the fixture.

Dushmantha Chameera: Dushmantha Chameera impressed with figures of 2 for 24 in the first encounter, keeping the likes of Hardik and Kishan at bay. Blessed with pace and control, one can expect the Sri Lankan to deliver a wicket or two with the ball in hand.
