IND vs SL: India will lock horns with Sri Lanka in the 2nd T20I match of the Sri Lanka tour of India 2022 on Saturday, 26th February at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamsala.
India are off to a perfect start in the series as they defeated the Lankans in the first T20I by 62 runs. An electrifying 89-run knock from opening batter & wicket-keeper Ishan Kishan, Rohit’s 44, and a stunning half-century from Shreyas Iyer had set up a massive total of 199 runs for the Sri Lankans. Later, the bowlers did a great job defending the target by knocking out six wickets.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka will be disappointed by their performance in both the batting as well as bowling departments. The bowlers were smashed left and right while Charith Asalanka was the lone-ranger in their batting unit who played a fine knock of 53 runs in 47 deliveries. They will now try to regroup and make a solid comeback in this matchup.
