Rohit Sharma led India's side comfortably won the first T20 game of the bilateral series against Srilanka. Now they will be marching towards another series triumph when they face Srilanka in the 2nd game of the series at Dharamsala on 26th February 2022. After getting defeated against Australia, Srilanka are yet to be back in good touch. The team’s poor batting display helped the Indian team to register their 10th consecutive T20I win. Srilanka’s leading all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga once again got tested positive with Covid-19 and is set to miss the entire T20 series.

In the Indian unit, Suryakumar Yadav, Deepak Chahar, and Ruturaj Gaikwad will not be available for this bilateral series due to injury concerns. Although both the teams are suffering these issues of injuries, they have perfect replacements for their players in the upcoming matches.

India Preview

The team India clinched the first game easily by 62 runs against Sri Lanka. In the 3 matches’ bilateral series, hosts are now leading the series by 1-0. The second game will be played at Dharamsala and India would like to win the game as well as a series while playing in home conditions. Sri Lankan captain invited Indian openers to bat first and both the openers took advantage of this decision to give a good start to an inning. Rohit Sharma (44 runs from 32 balls) along with Ishan Kishan who scored fiery 89 runs from 59 balls, set a 111 runs partnership for the 1st wicket. After the first wicket of Rohit Sharma, Shreyas Iyer played his role in the middle order to score not out 57 runs from 27 balls.

With the help of a solid batting display, India have managed to set a target of 199 runs in the 2 overs. Skipper Rohit Sharma used 7 different bowlers while defending the target and the bowlers did a fantastic job to register a victory. Bhuvaneshwar Kumar bowled a brilliant opening spell of 2 wickets for 9 runs in the 2 overs. Vyankatesh Iyer also helped him to get 2 wickets in 3 overs by conceding 36 runs. In the absence of Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant, and Deepak Chahar, the Indian unit has managed to substitute those blank places perfectly and looks like a strong squad to defeat. They will try to continue this winning momentum in the second game also.

Key Players: Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Jasprit Bumrah

India Predicted Playing XI:

Rohit Sharma (C), Ishan Kishan (wk), Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson, Deepak Hooda, Venkatesh Iyer, Ravindra Jadeja, Harshal Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah

Sri Lanka Preview

Sri Lanka are still in search of a win after losing the previous series against Australia and the first match of the T20 series against India. They will face India in the second game at Dharamsala and will try to break India’s winning streak of 10 T20Is. Sri Lankan bowlers have displayed an average performance in the first match against India's strong batting unit. They have conceded 199 runs in the 20 overs. No single bowler could manage to keep the bowling economy under 7.00. Only Dasun Shanaka and Lahiru Kumara, shared 1 wickets each in the first inning.

Sri Lankan batting unit collapsed terribly in front of the Indian bowling attack. While chasing the target of 200 runs in 20 overs, Sri Lanka lost the first 5 wickets on 60 runs in the 11 overs. Despite Charith Aslanka’s knock of not out 53 runs in 47 balls, no other batter spent time on a wicket to set up a good partnership. As a result, Sri Lanka lost the first match by a huge margin of 62 runs. This new and young unit of Sri Lanka has lacked the experience. They have to execute their plans well on the ground when they face hosts in the 2nd T20 game. The 2nd game will be important for visitors as it will be a series-deciding game for both teams.

Key Players: Pathum Nissanka, Charith Asalanka, Charith Asalanka, Dushmantha Chameera

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing XI:

Dasun Shanaka (c), Pathum Nissanka, Kamil Mishara, Janith Liyanage, Dinesh Chandimal (wk), Charith Asalanka, Chamika Karunaratne, Jeffer Vandersay, Dushmantha Chameera, Lahiru Kumara, Praveen Jayawickrama

Weather Conditions

The weather will be rainy on Saturday with temperatures ranging between 9°C and 5°C. There are 80-90% chances of raining on the matchday. The stats clearly show that the pitch has favored bowlers in the second inning while defending totals.

Venue Details

The second game of the T20I series will be played at Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamsala. A venue can accommodate 23,000 spectators.

Toss: To Bat

In the last 5 T20Is played at this venue, the pitch has favoured the batters. The team which chose to bat first here won 4 out of the last 5 games. The pitch has been offering advantages to bowlers in the latter part of the game where dew factors come into the place. The team winning the toss should opt to bat first here.

India are now undefeated in the last 10 T20 games and the team is high on confidence in this series. The Indian squad is looking more balanced and promising, compared to the Sri Lankan unit. Sri Lankan batting unit failed to put pressure on Indian bowlers and Indians will be looking forward to maintaining good form in the 2nd game also.

We predict that India will defeat Sri Lanka.
