The second match of the three T20 matches between India and Sri Lanka will be played at Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore on Friday (December 22). It is surprising to know that the record of victory of Team India in this stadium is 100%. India has played 5 ODIs and one Test so far. In such a situation, now it is interesting to see if Team India can maintain its record of winning on Holkar.
The Indian cricket team defeated Sri Lanka by 93 runs in the first T-20 match at the Barabati Stadium on Wednesday. With this, India has taken a 1-0 lead in the series of three T-20 matches. India had set a target of 181 for a win against Sri Lanka. The Sri Lankan team continued to lose wickets and was stuck at 87 runs in 16 overs.
For Sri Lanka, 23 runs were scored by Upul Tharanga. Only three Sri Lankan batsmen reached to the figure of 10. From India, Yuzvendra Chahal took four wickets. Kuldeep Yadav and Hardik Pandya took two wickets each. Jaidev Unadkat got one wicket.
After the unilateral victory in the first match, Rohit Sharma, who captained the Indian team, will go into the second Twenty20 match with a target of 2-0 lead unbeaten on the series. Once again he would like to continue his fantastic form. Rohit had defeated Sri Lanka in his first ODI series as captain. In his first series of T-20, he will have the same excitement in his eyes.
