After a convincing victory in the first T20I against Sri Lanka, India will now come to maintain the momentum as usual, which they won. The action now shifts to Himachal, Dharamshala for a major match as Sri Lanka need to win if they want to stay in the tournament.
There is only one sector where India will look to improve, space. Ishan Kishan hitting a surprise of 89 is a great explanation by the youth. While Shreyas Iyer reveals why he played well in the T20 team in the first game.
Sri Lanka will be frustrated from their first game performance and will be looking to start fresh in the second. With the series on the line, Sri Lanka needs to defeat this other one they can also finish as the West Indies.
Dasun Shanaka’s directing team comes from different backgrounds, they have played in Australia before and they have not adapted very well to Indian promotion positions. Sri Lanka have moved on with an inexperienced batting setup because the 200-yard field in the first game is too small for them. While the bowling attack in Lanka showed some good signs in the beginning but Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma and later Shreyas Iyer led them to the pursuers.
To sum up, Sri Lanka will be expected to have a better performance in the second T20I and not let India dominate them in all respects.
