Match Preview:

After an entertaining opening encounter at the Wankhede Stadium, India and Sri Lanka gear up towards the second T20I in Pune. The Men in Blue didn’t have a great outing in the first fixture of the series as the top order crumbled in front of the Lankan spin attack but the lower order gradually improved and managed to put up a decent total of 162 runs. 

Then in the second innings, like the Sri Lankan bowlers, India also managed to produce a brilliant bowling display. With a 1-0 lead in the series, the Men in Blue would hope to clinch the series in Pune. But before the two teams go head-to-head, here is a look at the picture painted by numbers and statistics and who they depict could be the winner.

Win Possibility

 ind vs sl 2nd t20i win possibility 

The Indian team is the favourite to win the second T20I against Sri Lanka in Pune. Despite a sluggish start in the opening game, the Men in Blue still managed to put on a decent 162-run total. Similarly, bowling also stepped up to play a major part in the Indian win. Talking about Sri Lanka, the Island nation hasn’t been able to put up consistent performances which makes them vulnerable in the second T20I.
