India vs Sri Lanka 2nd T20 Highlights – Dec 22, 2017, Ind v SL highlights today – Second Twenty/20 from Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore (India) Friday 22nd December 2017. In their last match, India batted first after losing the toss and scored 180 runs with three wickets down. After 18 overs Indian team scorecard was not looking good but after that MS Dhoni† and MK Pandey played so well. Indian captain RG Sharma scored 17 runs off 13 balls and out when it was 4.6 well taken at mid-on! This is a mistimed hoick from Rohit, the ball, which is on a length and a wicket-to-wicket line, hits him high on the bat and therefore does not allow him the power he is looking for. Chameera runs forward, dives and clings onto the low chance with both hands 38/1. KL Rahul scored the most runs from the Indian team, he scored 61 runs off 48 balls and then out, SS Iyer 24, MS Dhoni † 39 and MK Pandey 32. From Sri Lanka, WU Tharanga scored 23 runs and he was the highest runs scorer from his team. YS Chahal took four wickets, HH Pandya took three, Kuldeep Yadav two and JD Unadkat took one wicket. Sri Lanka all out in 16 overs with 87 runs.

The surface at the Holkar Stadium is usually a batsman’s dream. With short boundaries and the possibility of dew, there should be plenty of boundaries again. The forecast says there is no chance of rain. Sri Lanka could make a few changes too, but for different reasons. With Angelo Mathews and Dasun Shanaka available to bowl, they may choose an extra batsman in place of either of their seamers. Will India wait to win another home series before giving all the members in the squad a chance? Pacer Basil Thampi and the big-hitting Deepak Hooda are likely to be given a chance either way, in this game or the third T20.
Highlights will be available after end of the play.
