SL vs IND Dream11: A professional performance in the first T20I enabled Team India to overcome spirited resilience from Sri Lanka. The hosts understood the conditions better and had put Team India under immense pressure. However, the experience of playing high-voltage games helped Team India to shut Sri Lanka’s fight. Now the visitors will be keen to pocket the series in the second game itself while SL will look to improve on their last show. India will make lots of changes in the playing XI as Krunal Pandya has been affected with Covid and few other players who were in close contact with him are in isolation. As per reports, Deeepak Chahar, Manish Pandey, Pandya brothers, Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan are unavailable for this match. This means Shikhar Dhawan, Devdutt Padikkal, Sanju Samson and Nitish Rana will form India’s batting line-up. In the bowling department, the management has brought in net bowlers Ishan Porel, Sandeep Warrier, Arshdeep Singh, Sai Kishore and Simarjeet Singh in the squad.
