India and Sri Lanka are currently locking horns in the three-match ODI series. The hosts displayed a staggering performance in the first game and took a lead of 1-0 by thumping the opposition by 67 runs. They would now want to seal the series in the second game itself.
2 Players who deserve a chance in the playing XI for the 2nd ODI against Sri Lanka
The second ODI between india and Sri Lanka is slated to take place on 12th January in Kolkata. The Men in Blue although won the first game but there were a few area of concerns for them. They could make a few changes in the second game to rectify the mistakes. With game just a day away, let’s take a look at 2 Players who deserve a chance in the playing XI for the 2nd ODI against Sri Lanka
It’s fair to say that Washington Sundar is one of the unluckiest luckiest cricketer. The all-rounder has proved his prowess his both bat and ball in the limited opportunities he has played but still has been benched. He didn’t play a single game in the T20I series as Axar Patel was preferred over him. But it was expected that he will walk straight into the XI for ODIs. However, this wasn’t the case as he was again benched for the first game. With Patel failing to make a mark with both bat and ball in the first game, Sundar could well be in line for the second game. Sunder has been decent in the games he has played and is comparatively a better batter than Axar.

Ishan Kishan is another player who deserve a chance in the playing XI for the 2nd ODI against Sri Lanka. It was expected that Kishan would open considering he smashed a double century in the last ODI he played. The southpaw smashed 212 runs and helped India win the game. However, despite him scoring a double ton, Shubman Gill was preferred over him. The southpaw has been scoring consistently and there deserves a chance in Indian side.
