India vs Sri Lanka, 2nd T20I will be played in Dharamsala, tonight. The hosts won the first match comfortably by 62 runs and will look to take an unassailable lead after tonight’s game. Ishan Kishan led India’s attack in the first game and he was bolstered by a powerful knock from Shreyas Iyer. Bhuvneshwar Kumar shone with the ball as he and Jadeja took two wickets each. The only positive for the Lankans’ was Charith Asalanka’s batting. They’ll expect better contributions from their bowlers tonight. Pathum Nissanka’s runs with the bat will be crucial as well.

India Vs Sri Lanka, Dream 11 Top Picks
The game will be played in Dharamsala where the ball travels quite well in the air. Rain threat looms large on the match, but if the game takes place, batters would certainly enjoy batting here.
Top Pics: India
Shreyas Iyer scored 57 runs off 28 deliveries in the first match in Lucknow. The best part about Shreyas is that he’s not a player who blows too hot and cold. If he’s in some form, he will score consistently. Thus, we have also made Iyer the captain of our Dream11 fantasy team.
Ishan Kishan was the player of the match in Lucknow a couple of evenings ago. We have selected him as the vice-captain of our side because of his all-round ability. He will keep the wickets for India, thus he can give us some handy points through the catches he takes or the stumpings he does. Plus, he is in a good form with the bat and as an opener, he will try to make the best use of the powerplay.
Top Picks: Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka would desperately want runs from Pathum Nissanka. Nissanka was in sublime form against Australia recently. He was unfortunate to get out on the first ball in the first match. He couldn’t have done much as the ball kept low.
Charith Asalanka was Sri Lanka’s lone warrior in the first game. Asalanka scored 53 runs off 47 balls. He was slow, but with the wickets falling continuously from the other end, he never got the chance to accelerate. SL fans would hope for another good show from Asalanka
Suggested Fantasy Playing XI: India vs Sri Lanka
- Wicket Keeper – Ishan Kishan(vc)
- Batsmen – Rohit Sharma, Shreyas Iyer(c), Charith Asalanka, Pathum Nissanka
- All-Rounders – Venkatesh Iyer, Chamika Karunaratne
- Bowlers – Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Harshal Patel, Dushmantha Chameera
Possible Playing XI
Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma (c), Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson, Venkatesh Iyer, Deepak Hooda, Ravindra Jadeja, Harshal Patel, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah
Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Pathum Nissanka, Charith Asalanka, Janith Liyanage, Dhananjaya de Silva, Dasun Shanaka (c), Chamika Karunaratne, Dushmantha Chameera, Jeffrey Vandersay, Praveen Jayawickrama, Lahiru Kumara
The pitch as Dharamsala should be good for batting. The last time India played a T20I here, Rohit Sharma scored his first T20I hundred. However, the opponent, South Africa, chased down the target quite comfortably. In six completed games here, the team batting first has won on four occasions while the chasing team won twice.
