- Charith Asalanka has been a rare positive for Sri Lanka in recent weeks. He top scored with 44 from 26 on Sunday and is a good tip for Sri Lanka’s leading run scorer in this game. Wanindu Hasaranga returned from injury in the first IT20 and took 2-28. He is a strong choice for Sri Lanka’s top wicket taker in this match.
- Shikhar Dhawan continued his impressive international form with 46 from 36 balls in Sunday’s game. Batting at the top of the order, he is a reliable option for India’s leading run scorer in this clash. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is a real threat in IT20 cricket and proved his worth again with 4-22 in the opening game. He is our recommendation for India’s top wicket taker in this game.
- With the gloves, Minod Bhanuka took 2 catches before hitting 10 runs on Sunday. For India, Ishan Kishan made a stumping and hit an unbeaten 20 with the bat. Kishan is our tip for the leading wicket-keeper in this match.
