Sri Lanka vs India Second T20 Tri Series
Question in detail
The hosts Lanka and India are set to lock horns in the Nidahas trophy fourth match, to be played on March 12. After the first leg of the series is over, both teams start on level grounds with 2 points each in their pocket. Bangladesh, too, has equalized the scoreline winning the Saturday clash against Lanka. The situation for all teams is tricky to be in now.
In their quest to win Sri Lanka vs India second T20 tri-series, the men-in-blue would like to test those devoid of an opportunity on the tour so far KL Rahul, Deepak Hooda, Axar Patel and Mohammed Siraj. If not all, a few of them could be handed a chance.
The southpaw opener Shikhar Dhawan has been on auto-pilot mode on this tour and is expected to continue the slaughter in Nidahas trophy fourth match as well. India will be hopping their other batsmen to step up too. Skipper Rohit Sharma needs to come out the shell to help his team with the bat. The middle-order, which includes the likes of Suresh Raina, Rishabh Pant, Manish Pandey and Dinesh Karthik, hasn't been at its best. They have chipped in with brief contributions. If India wants to win, these four batsmen have to be at their best before Rahul or Hooda land their opportunity.
Kusal Parera will once again be the player to watch out for. He's been in tremendous form thus far and will want to pack a punch again. His 37-ball 66 in the opening game was a total destroyer. His match-winning half-century even overshadowed Shikhar Dhawan's 49-ball 90. Kusal is not the sole threat India need to wary of. Ignoring Kusal Mendis, Danushka Gunathilaka and Upul Tharanga can also land them in some trouble. The only woe to confident Lanka is the absence of their regular skipper Dinesh Chandimal, who is out due to a ban for over-rate offense. Thisara Perera will be seen leading the team in Sri Lanka vs India second T20 tri-series.
