Good start from India as Sri Lankan bowlers failed to make a mark after winning the toss in the second T20I at Colombo. Captain Shikhar Dhawan is leading the charge right from the top along with the debutant Ruturaj Gaikwad. India named 4 debutants in their squad as Devdutt Padikkal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Nitish Rana, and Chetan Sakariya are making their T20I debuts. From Sri Lanka, middle-order batsman Ramesh Mendis is making his T20I debut. All the Indian players who were in contact with COVID positive Krunal Pandya are not part of this game even after they were tested negative. India lead the series 1-0 after they won the first T20I by 38 runs. It is 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.
