After the heroics from Sri Lankan spinners in the first innings, now Indian spinners are taking the charge in the second innings. Sri Lanka lost six wickets after a decent start in the run chase of 133 runs in the second T20I at Colombo. Before Indian spinners took the charge, Bhuvneshwar Kumar got the opening breakthrough for India by dismissing opener Avishka Fernando early. Kuldeep Yadav is the leading wicket-taker from Indian side with his 2 wickets for 27 runs. India got 4 debutants in their squad for this game as all Indian players who were close contacts of Covid positive Krunal Pandya have been isolated and seperated from the main squad. India lead the series 1-0 and it’s the final chance for Sri Lanka to stay alive in the series as a win for India in this game will mean that the visitors go 2-0 up and clinch the T20I series as well after winning the ODI series earlier on this tour.
