- Now India-Sri Lanka second T20 match on Wednesday, Krunal Pandya Kovid infected
- Team India is currently 1-0 ahead in this series, the host Sri Lankan team will be under pressure
- India can do some experiments and changes in its XI in the second T20
The India-Sri Lanka second T20 was pushed forward by a day after Krunal Pandya was found to be Kovid infected. Now the Indian team will play the second T20 match against Sri Lanka on Wednesday. (IND vs SL 2nd T20I) With a win in India, the three-match T20 International cricket series will go to his name, then he will hope that Sanju Samson will be able to live up to his talent and bring consistency in his performance. India are unlikely to change their winning combination after beating Sri Lanka by 38 runs in the first match. However, if the team management decides to rest Prithvi Shaw and Suryakumar Yadav, who have been selected for the Test tour in the UK, there may be changes in the team.
However, it is expected that both of them will play at least in tomorrow’s match and they may be rested from the final match in case India win the series. Devdutt Padikkal and Ruturaj Gaikwad may be preferred over poor-form Manish Pandey in case of a change in plan. The second T20 match will start at 8 pm Indian time.
That’s why eyes will be on Sanju Samson
On Wednesday, all eyes will be on Sanju Samson, who has high hopes but whenever he got a chance to play in the Indian jersey, he failed to live up to these expectations. Samson got ample batting opportunities at the top of the order but despite this, he could only manage runs in eight matches at an average of 13.75. Samson’s road is not going to be easy with this performance considering the talented players coming up.
In terms of performance, Rishabh Pant has left Samson far behind while Ishan Kishan has also performed effectively when given limited chances.
Lokesh Rahul is also an option in limited overs cricket as a wicketkeeper and in such a situation, Samson does not have much time to impress with his performance. National Cricket Academy director Rahul Dravid also has high hopes from Samson and if he fails to score big in the next two matches, this series could prove to be his last chance.
Team India worried about this legendary player
Hardik Pandya’s batting form is also a matter of concern for the team who has failed to impress against Sri Lanka so far. He has bowled fine but he has failed to bowl like he did before the back surgery.
Expectations from the stalwarts of these two spins
Indian bowlers performed brilliantly in the first match. Yuzvendra Chahal and Varun Chakraborty will once again try to impress. Both of them are posing a challenge for the wrist spinner’s place in the team. With more than 20 players expected to be selected for the T20 World Cup to be held in the UAE, both Chakraborty and Chahal are likely to find a place in the squad.
Sri Lanka will face many challenges
T20 series will be a tougher challenge for Sri Lanka than one-day internationals as they do not have the players to change the course of the match by playing big shots consistently. Charith Asalanka tried to put pressure on India with a knock of 44 runs in the first match but Dasun Shanaka’s team’s inexperience in the crucial occasions showed. The team lost the last six wickets on Monday adding just 15 runs. Wanindu Hasaranga has impressed with his leg-spin and has managed to trouble India’s other batsmen barring Suryakumar.
Both the T20 teams are as follows
Indian Team: Shikhar Dhawan (captain), Prithvi Shaw, Devdutt Padikkal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Suryakumar Yadav, Manish Pandey, Hardik Pandya, Nitish Rana, Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson, Yuzvendra Chahal, Rahul Chahar, K Gautam, Deepak Chahar, Navdeep Saini, Chetan Sakaria , Krunal Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Varun Chakraborty and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Sri Lankan Team: Dasun Shanaka (Captain), Dhananjay D’Silva, Avishka Fernando, Bhanuka Rajapakse, Ashen Bandara, Dushmanta Chamira, Lakshmana Sandakan, Akila Dhananjay, Shiran Fernando, Dhananjay Lakshmana, Ishan Jayaratne, Praveen Jayavikrama, Asit Fernando, Kasun Kumar Rajita, Lahiru Rajita, Lahiru , Minod Bhanuka, Lahiru Udara, Ramesh Mendis, Chamika Karunaratne, Binura Fernando, Pathum Nisanka, Charith Asalanka and Vanindu Hasaranga.
