The team will now be working on their catching and fielding skills in the upcoming match. Keep reading to know the cricket fantasy tips of the 2nd T20I.
After a comprehensive win, skipper Rohit Sharma is unlikely to pluck the combination in the team. Fans were stunned by the incredible attack by Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer with their half-centuries. Kishan was seen flickering in the last series against West Indies, but his comeback was nothing less than a raging fire. Shreyas Iyer was also ahead of the expectations after exhibiting untarnished finishing skills with unbeaten 57 runs.
On the bowling side, Bhuvneshwar Kumar grabbed many cheers from the audience with a wicket off on the first ball in Lankan innings. Ventakesh Iyer grooved with his moves and skills for picking 2 wickets. So what if Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant and Suryakumar Yadav were absent, The Young India made it possible!
The sloppy performance by Sri Lanka proved their vulnerability in every segment of the game. Charith Asalanka was the only gladiator playing with his skills while the other seven batters struggled to push runs on the board.
While on the bowling side, all 6 Lankan bowlers went for plenty. The bowling by visitors did not show good signs against the dominant host. Lahiru Kumara and captain Dasun Shanaka grabbed wickets while others were clowning away in the field.
