In the Sri Lanka tour of India, the second T20I of the three-match series will be played at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Stadium in Dharamsala on Saturday, February 26 at 7 PM IST. The hosts have already acquired a lead of 1-0.
The Indians will be heading into this fixture on the back of a 62-run victory in the first T20I. Spectacular performances from Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Rohit Sharma, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Yuzvendra Chahal helped India to clinch an easy victory. With the leisure of having more than five bowlers in the playing XI along with a robust batting line-up, the home team is a formidable side in home conditions. The Rohit Sharma-led Indian team will aim to secure the series by winning the upcoming fixture.
Sri Lanka didn’t stand a chance against the Men in Blue in the first T20I. The visitors are currently in a do-or-die situation and will have to win the second match to stay alive in the series. Apart from Charith Asalanka and Dushmantha Chameera, there wasn’t any significant contribution with the bat. The Lankans need to deliver a splendid performance in the second T20I to outdo the in-form Indian side.
In the head-to-head competition between the two teams, the home team has a humongous lead. The two sides have locked horns on 23 occasions, India won 15 fixtures while Sri Lanka emerged victorious on seven instances.
