India’s tour of Sri Lanka has been very disappointing for the hosts so far. The fact that India has made it so one-sided even with their second team shows their bench strength. Although the Indians had a disappointing finish to their batting, they made it up with a dominant display in bowling. The Men in Blue emerged victorious by 38 runs and took a crucial 1-0 lead in the three-match series. Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s four-wicket haul in the second innings sealed the deal for the visitors.

SL VS IND: Team News and Form Guide:
Sri Lanka failed to deal with some of the best IPL players in the opening match of the T20I series. Moreover, they are without the top scorer in the LPL – Danushka Gunathilaka (suspended for bio-bubble breach while on tour in England). Batting was a major disappointment in the first T20I for Sri Lanka. However, not many changes are expected to be made. Bhanuka Rajapaksa could replace Dhananjaya de Silva. The bowling line-up is likely to remain unchanged.
The recent form of Sri Lanka- L-L-L-L-L (Last five completed T20Is, most recent first).
BCCI has confirmed that opener Prithvi Shaw and middle-order batter Suryakumar Yadav are set to travel to the United Kingdom (UK) to join India’s Test squad. However, no details were provided concerning whether the duo will miss the remaining two T20Is or not. In case Shaw and Surya don’t play the rest of the series, Paddikal and Gaikwad are their ideal replacements.
