On Tuesday (7th January), the hosts India and the visitors Sri Lanka will meet in the second T20I of the three-match series at Holkar Cricket Stadium (Indore).

The series is currently standing with 0-0 scoreline due to the no result in the series opener at Guwahati on last Sunday (5th January) night. Though the hosts decided to bowl first after winning the toss in that match, the match didn’t begin due to the rain interruption.

Here is the predicted XI for India for the upcoming Indore T20I.

While he was battling to find his old form before his latest injury, he has to prove his real quality in this series. Though he is scoring runs, he is losing the set wickets in the crucial time of the matches, and his strike-rate is also dropping.
