Sri Lanka vs India 2nd T20I: Shikhar Dhawan-led Indian team managed to turn the tables midway in the first T20I against Sri Lanka to seal a win by 38 runs last night. Indian bowlers succeeded in reducing the Sri Lankan cricketers to 126 runs following an average display of batting from the host’s team.

Once again, Sri Lankan batsmen failed to hold onto the start provided by the top order. The middle-order of the Lankan lions struggled in front of Indian bowlers. Charith Asalanka, the debutant batsman, looked in good touch and amassed 44 runs in 26 balls while in pain.

After the loss in the first T20I, the hosts will be raring to make a comeback in the second T20I. Charith Asalanka’s injury has compounded the woes for the Lankan lions ahead of the second match.

Asalanka, who performed brilliantly despite severe pain, is doubtful for the next match due to a hamstring injury.
