IND vs SL Match Details

Match: India vs Sri Lanka, 2nd T20I | Sri Lanka tour of India 

Date: Thursday, 5 Jan 2023

IND vs SL Preview

  • India won the first T20I at Wankhede by a slim margin of 2 runs.
  • In the run-down, Dasun Shanaka and other batters in the bottom order displayed good touch.
  • In contrast, Shivam Mavi launched his career with a 4-Wickets, while Deepak Hooda fulfilled the finisher’s job to perfection.


On Thursday night at the Maharashtra Stadium, India and Sri Lanka will play the second of three IT20 matches. In a nail-biting match in Mumbai, India prevailed by two runs while successfully defending their 162-5 total.  At 19:00 local time, the second game of the series begins in Pune. 

In the first game of the series on Tuesday, India was far from at its best, but a few players stood out. In this game, we anticipate more players stepping forward.

Sri Lanka showed great fortitude in the opening game’s chase and came perilously close to winning the final over. They could be able to make another challenge in this game with a marginally better performance.

IND vs SL Weather Report

Clear skies and a maximum temperature of 31 degrees Celsius are forecast.

IND vs SL Match Toss Prediction

There have only been three T20Is played here so far, and in both of them, the team batting second triumphed. However, at this location, teams batting first won 28 of the 51 domestic T20 matches. Therefore, it will be a difficult choice.

IND vs SL Pitch Report

The pitch at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium in Pune is conducive to batting. As the game advances, the spinners can enter the playing mode.

India Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Due to cramps, Captain Hardik Pandya was only able to bowl three overs on Tuesday before having to leave the field. In the post-game news conference, he reassured fans that there was nothing to be concerned about and that we anticipate him to be completely healthy to lead the squad in this encounter.

Sri Lanka News & Probable Playing XIs

Although Kasun Rajitha was the only Sri Lankan bowler in the first IT20 to go without a wicket and be costly, he made a very strong impression on his debut at this location seven years ago, and we anticipate him to keep his spot in the team. The squad is not concerned about any injuries going into this game.
