Suryakumar Yadav, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar and Yuzvendra Chahal were some of the strong performers for India in the series opener. India have been forced to make changes to their winning combination after Krunal Pandya tested positive. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, could make few changes as well.
Ashen Bandara failed to impress in the series opener and he could be warming the bench in this fixture. Bhanuka Rajapaksa is likely to replace him in Sri Lanka's playing XI for this important clash.
