The second ODI between Sri Lanka and India is set to take place at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.
India registered a comfortable seven-wicket win to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. However, India will still look to make improvements, especially on the bowling front, with their pacers Deepak Chahar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar struggling to pick up early wickets.
Sri Lanka will be hoping for improved performance. None of their batsmen were able to convert their starts into big ones, which cost them the win.
A good batting track beckons at the Premadasa Stadium with some help on offer for the bowlers as well.
