IND vs SL 2nd T20 Fantasy Picks: With the 1-0 lead, India will be eyeing to seal the three-match series when they take on Sri Lanka for the second T20I at R Premadasa Stadium tonight. Shikhar Dhawan-led India registered a comprehensive 38 runs victory in the opening game on the back of Surya Kumar Yadav’s fifty and Bhuvaneshwar Kumar’s 4-22. A target of 165 runs proved out to be way too much for the Sri Lankan side which is struggling to perform with the bat.
Here we will look at five fantasy picks who can be game-changer for their respective sides in the 2nd T20I.
Five must-have Fantasy Picks for IND vs SL 2nd T20-
Shikhar Dhawan – Shikhar Dhawan has been a consistent contributor with the bat on the tour so far. He finished as the leading run-scorer for India in the ODIs scoring 128 runs in 3 innings at an average of 64.00. He scored a steady 46 off 36 deliveries in the opening T20I and is likely to continue his good form.
Surya Kumar Yadav – Surya Kumar Yadav, if features in the playing11, is a must-have pick as a middle-order batsman in your fantasy team. He is in stellar form which has earned him a call to join Virat Kohli-led Indian side in England. Surya Kumar Yadav was the second leading run-scorer in the ODIs for India behind S Dhawan, scoring 124 runs in 3 innings, and propelled India to a competitive total with his 34-ball 50 in the first T20I.
Charith Asalanka – Charith Asalanka is the only in-form batter from Sri Lanka who can really pose a threat to the Indian bowling line-up. He kept the hopes alive for Sri Lanka in the first T20I with his quickfire 44 off just 26 deliveries. Asalanka was also a consistent scorer in the three ODIs as he finished as the third leading run-scorer in the series, scoring 127 runs in 3 innings at an average of 42.33.
Avishka Fernando – With 159 runs in 3 innings, Avishka Fernando ended up as the top run-scorer in the three-match ODI series. The Sri Lanka opener scored 33, 50, and 76 in the three ODIs respectively. He got off to a good start in the first T20I as well, scoring 26 off 23, but couldn’t capitalize on it.
Wanindu Hasaranga – The only Sri Lankan bowler who has managed to trouble Indian batters to some extent, Wanindu Hasaranga can be the game-changer for the host as he was in the second ODI with his 3-37, before D Chahar’s heroic guided India home. Hasaranga picked up 2-28 in the first T20I and can also contribute with the bat. He was the top run-scorer for Sri Lanka in ODIs on England tour.
