2nd T20I of the India Tour of Sri Lanka 2021 will see the clash between Sri Lanka and India at the R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo on Wednesday 28th July 2021. Keep reading to find out SL vs IND Match Prediction Who Will Win Today’s 2nd T20I of India tour of Sri Lanka, 2021, 28th July.
Having won the ODI series, team India got off to a winning start in the T20Is too. India’s vice-captain Bhuvneshwar Kumar was the Man of the Match for his 4-wicket haul while restricting Sri Lanka 38 runs short of India’s total. Suryakumar Yadav, who had won the Player of the Series in the ODIs, continued his good form and scored a fifty to propel India to 164/5.
Despite the victory, there are a few areas both teams would want to improve in. The visitors would hope for the lower middle order to provide the firepower during the slog overs. Sri Lanka would want the batsmen to assume more responsibility. It’s a do-or-die game for the hosts as they certainly wouldn’t like to lose both the series of the tour.

Just like the ODIs, the pitch was decent to bat on in the first T20I. However, the spinners proved to be effective. Also, the slower ones from the pacers were tough to score runs off. We could see a very similar pitch for the second game too.
The forecast is for scattered thunderstorms during the day in Colombo on Tuesday. However, in the evening, the weather should remain clear. The temperature is expected to go as high as 29°C while the humidity would be around 81%.
