India has been dominating at home since Rohit has taken the captaincy role. India are on a roll as they have won 10 consecutive T20I matches and are on their longest winning streak. The captain is also doing a good job of leading the team and utilizing the players to good effect.
The wicket-keeper batsman, Ishan Kishan, was the star performer in the first match. Together with Shreyas Iyer, they helped India achieve a massive target of 199 runs. The Indian team has given rest to some big names like Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Rishabh Pant. While Suryakumar Yadav and Deepak Chahar are out due to injuries. It even comes from Sri Lanka, where their star all-rounder, Wanindu Hasaranga, is unavailable due to a COVID positive test. And now Maheesh Theekshana and Kusal Mendis have also been ruled out due to injuries.
However, the Sri Lanka Cricket Board has announced Niroshan Dickwella and Dhananjaya de Silva as the replacements for the remaining matches. The Lankan Lions looked pretty ordinary in the first match, but skipper Shanaka would be hoping for a better performance this time around. Rohit Sharma is on the verge of breaking a few records in the second T20I, as he is currently sitting with Eoin Morgan and Kane Williamson on 15 T20I wins at home.
