India are now gearing up for another brilliant performance against Sri Lanka in the second T20I on Saturday. Ahead of the marquee game, former Indian cricketer and renowned commentator Aakash Chopra made a bold prediction regarding the pace duo of Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar.
Chopra believes that Bumrah and Bhuvi will enjoy bowling on the Dharamshala pitch and will together take over four wickets. In the first T20I, Bhuvi was the top bowler for India while Bumrah went wicketless despite splendid bowling in his three overs.

“I feel Bhuvi and Bumrah will together take more than four wickets. It is possible they might get to bowl a little more in this match and you might be forced to do that as well. Don’t expect the opposition to just completely roll over. You might get to bowl first also because whoever wins the toss will want to bowl first,”Chopra said while speaking on his Youtube Channel.

Further, Aakash Chopra predicted that it will be slightly cold during the match and thus the ball will get extra pace and bounce. Also, the former cricketer believes that the team bowling first should aim to get at least three wickets in the powerplay to not give an edge to the batting side.
“I feel you will get to see at least three wickets in the powerplay overs. It is the Dharamshala ground – mountains, it’s the month of February – it will get slightly cold in the evening, swinging delivery, a little pace, and bounce. Three wickets should fall and the match will become interesting. Dasun Shanaka – if Chameera is bowling well, don’t change him,”Aakash Chopra added.
While the pacers enjoy bowling on the surface, the pitch has something to offer to the batters as well. Owing to the high-altitude ground and the even bounce, Chopra predicted the number of sixes that can be hit on Saturday. The veteran also made his choice for the winner of the second T20 International.
“This is a high-altitude ground, a decent number of sixes are hit here. The pitch has bounce and the ball travels, it goes the distance. So I am saying that more than 12 sixes can be hit. And I am saying India can win, India will win,”Aakash Chopra concluded.
