- The second ODI between India and Sri Lanka will be played on Tuesday
- Bhuvneshwar Kumar to be replaced by Navdeep Saini
- Possibilities for Sri Lanka’s roster changes for the second ODI
India prevailed in the first game of the series with young people. Although there are some concerns in bowling, the strength of the team in hitting will also help in the second game. From Shikhar Dhawan, Ishant Kishan, Prithviraj Shah and Suryakumar Yadav all the way, India’s strength lies in its batting lineup. Kuldeep Yadav and Yusvendra Chahal need to excel in the field of support for effects. Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s lack of form is also a headache for India. It’s no wonder Navdeep Saini replaces Bhubaneswar.

It will not be easy for Sri Lanka, which is far behind India in bowling and batting, to come back. The strategy of using spinners to thwart India failed in the first match. The hosts may be forced to make one or two changes in the second match. Lahiru Kumara and Kusun Rajitha are likely to replace Isaru Udana. In the first match, Sri Lanka made a bowling mistake. The team is sure to have trouble in the second game to thwart India’s standard hitting.
