India VS Srilanka Preview
India had a great start to T20 series unlike ODI series. They won comprehensively in the first T20I. One positive point for Indians is they won in the absence Virat Kohli and when Rohit Sharma did not play well. Srilanka merely fought to chase 180 total. Holkar Stadium, Indore, will host the second T20I.Which ever team shall win match will start celebrating Christmas early.
Though Rohit Sharma got to a start, could not take in first T20I. KL Rahul who partnered him went on to score a fifty. But One problem KL Rahul is facing in converting 50’s into hundreds. He failed to accelerate in the first T20I, which brought back Srilankan hopes. But Pandey and Dhoni did not let it happen. Dhoni finished off the innings with a six and ensured that Srilankans would chase more than 9 runs per over. Srilankan Bowling was also reckless in final over’s. India team management might think about encouraging newbies lies Mohammed Siraj and Basil Thampi. Jaydev Unakdakt got lucky to a earn a place in the squad ahead on Sunder and Thampi. He provided India the first break through.
Only UPul Tharanga seemed to be the only player to perform in Srilankan players. He expressed his disgust after Srilanka failed to bat twenty over’s. Srilankan Batsmen once again collapsed post his dismissal. Dhoni did great glove work to dismiss him. None of the middle order or lower order batsmen impressed the spectators. Thisera Perrera had third consecutive defeat as captain. It was seventh consecutive defeat for Srilanka in the shortest international format. Team winning the toss might opt to chase considering the dew factor.
