Sri Lanka and India will take on each other in the second ODI of the three-match series at R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Tuesday.
After registering a thumping win in the first ODI on Sunday (July 18), the Shikhar Dhawan-led Team India will look to seal the series, whereas the hosts Sri Lanka are missing their top stars due to suspension and injuries. Dasun Shanaka & Co. will once again have a big task to stop the dangerous Indian batting unit from scoring runs at will.
The pitch is dry and provided plenty of help to the spinners during Sunday’s game and it looks likely that the two teams will find help and assistance from the surface in the second ODI as well.
