India are set to lock horns with Sri Lanka in the 2nd T20I of the series at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore. The series opener in Guwahati got washed out due to rain and thus, stakes in the forthcoming game will be quite high. Meanwhile, India won the toss and elected to bowl first. There are also some chances of rain in the second T20I and the spectators will want the rain gods to stay away. Also, dew is expected to come into play later in the match and thus, bowling in the second innings will not be easy. India Vs Sri Lanka, Cricket Score 2nd T20I Match.
