After a convincing win against Sri Lanka in the first ODI, the Shikhar Dhawan-led Team India will go again in the 2nd ODI on July 20.

In today's 2nd ODI in Colombo, India will be eyeing to take an unassailable lead in the three-match ODI series.

On the other hand, Sri Lanka will be aiming to better their performance in today's match against India.

What to Expect – Pitch Report & Weather Conditions?

R.Premdasa Stadium, Colombo

The pitch at Colombo generally assists the spinners. However, the surface at R.Premdasa Stadium in Colombo will have plenty of runs on offer. As evident in the first ODI, batters get value for their shots. While spinners can also have a say in the game, the line and length often become the key on such surfaces which offers slow turn.

The weather at Colombo for the 2nd SL vs IND ODI might have a little say in the outcome of the game. The weather is clear for the majority of the game but can halt the proceedings towards the evening. However, rain should not hamper the match proceedings for a longer duration even during the second half of the match.

Team India will be raring to go yet again and seal the series in today's ODI fixture against the home team. The tourists are likely to make any changes after a near-perfect win in the first ODI. Sanju Samson, who was unavailable due to injury, is likely to be fit for the second ODI. However, the Kerala batsman might have to wait for his opportunity in the series.

Sri Lanka

The Island nation has struggled to pick a playing XI that can put up a fight against any of the international teams. After facing a defeat against England, the home team has begun the series against India on a poor note. Skipper Dasun Shanaka will be a worried man and might be looking to change the team combination going into today's match. However, with not many options available, the hosts will have to find a way to beat India with their current set of players.


Probable Playing XI


Shikhar Dhawan (C), Prithvi Shaw, Ishan Kishan (Wk), Manish Pandey, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Krunal Pandya, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal

Sri Lanka

Avishka Fernando, Minod Bhanuka (Wk), Bhanuka Rajapaksa, Dhananjaya de Silva, Charith Asalanka, Dasun Shanaka (C), Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Isuru Udana, Dushmantha Chameera, Lakshan Sandakan.


Top Fantasy Picks for SL vs IND 2nd ODI
Shikhar Dhawan

In the first ODI, Shikhar Dhawan played a captain's knock to lead his team home in a smallish chase. The Southpaw returned unbeaten with an 86-run knock of just 95 deliveries. Playing in his maiden ODI as India skipper, Dhawan was smart enough to allow youngsters to have a go at the top of the order and was comfortable in playing the second-fiddle role. Even today Dhawan would prove to be a crucial player in the Dream11 Team for SL vs IND 2nd ODI. He might also be a contender for the captain of the Fantasy team.


Prithvi Shaw

The young Mumbaikar showed his brilliance with the bat with a quickfire 43 runs to take the gas out of Sri Lanka's total in the second innings. Shaw attacked from the onset and allowed his team to a rollicking start in the first six overs. While he failed to get a big score, the 21-year old will be aiming to correct it in today's ODI against the home team. Shaw will be one of the first few picks in today's SL vs IND Dream11 Team Prediction.


Sri Lanka
Dhananjaya De Silva

De Silva is one of the few shining stars in the current Sri Lanka setup

One of the few consistent players in the Sri Lankan setup, De Silva is a vital cog in the wheel for a team in crisis. The all-rounder shoulders dual responsibility both with the bat and ball. Batting at Mo.4, Dhananjaya is an elegant batter and compliments it with his handy off-spin. He bowls in the powerplay and even proved his effectiveness by getting rid of Shaw in the first ODI. The 29-year old player is a decent bet for people interested in cricket betting at 1xbet during the 2nd ODI.


Dushmantha Chameera

The Sri Lanka speedster has shown great potential in leading the fast bowling unit in the years to come. While Chameera can be erratic on occasions, his ability to clock high speeds often impressed most around the cricketing world. He could be one of the top picks in today's Dream11 Team for Sri Lanka vs India 2nd ODI.
