India will take on Sri Lanka in the 2nd T20I of the series on Saturday. In a one-sided affair, Men in Blue wrapped up a comprehensive victory over Sri Lanka in the 1st T20I by a massive 62 runs to claim 10th straight victory in the T20Is. Ishan Kishan played the best innings of his career to put India in the driver’s seat and later the bowlers did the rest. They are always hard to beat at home and considering their current form they are the likely favorites to win this match.
