Both India and Sri Lanka walked down the field on Sunday in full-action to start the series with a win. But luck had something else in store for the teams as rain played a spoilsport, abandoning the first T20I. Well, it wasn’t just the rain that spoiled the game, but the negligence of the officials too played a major role.
Well, now the first T20I is done and dusted, and the teams await the 2nd game of the series with high expectations. With just two games remaining of the series, it has now become crucial for the teams to set their foot right on the field and bag the victory title. The second game of the series will be played on January 7, starting at 7:00 PM IST.
The game will be played at the Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore. The pitch here usually favours batsmen as the ball easily comes on to the bat. Thus, a high scoring match can be expected in the upcoming match too.
The weather reports suggest a partially cloudy day with precipitation chances of 14%. Humidity will be on the higher side with 71%, and the temperature will be around 19-23 degrees Celsius.
