- All of Sri Lanka’s top 6 scored over 14 but none of them went beyond 39. Avishka Fernando made 33 at the top of the order and is a solid tip for Sri Lanka’s leading run scorer in this game. With the ball, Wanindu Hasaranga was far and away Sri Lanka’s most economical bowler. If he can entice the Indian batsmen to play more aggressively against him then he is worth backing as Sri Lanka’s leading wicket taker.
- Captain Shikhar Dhawan top scored for India with 86* from 95 balls. He is an excellent batsman and a strong option for India’s highest run scorer in this clash. Kuldeep Yadav took 2-48 in the opening ODI and is a good choice for India’s leading wicket taker in this match.
- With the gloves, Minod Bhanuka took a catch and made 27 as opener for Sri Lanka on Sunday. Ishan Kishan also took a catch but made 59 with the bat in the opening ODI. We recommend Ishan Kishan as the leading wicket-keeper in the second ODI.

SL vs IND Match Toss Prediction
Sri Lanka won the toss and chose to bat in the opening ODI but may find more success if they unleash their undoubtedly talented bowling attack first. We expect Dhawan to elect to field first.
SL vs IND Pitch Report
If India bat first then a score of high 300s could be on the cards. Slow bowlers on both sides had the most success at keeping the run-rate down in the opening ODI.
Slightly hotter than on Sunday with partly cloudy skies delivering temperatures as high as 29 degrees.
