SL vs IND Dream11 Predictions: Preview
Sri Lanka’s form:
The Sri Lankan cricket team was on the verge of a historic win against India in the 2nd ODI. They had posted a formidable score of 275 batting first for the second consecutive time. Sri Lanka took decisive leads in the various stages of the game defending the score. They dismissed Prithvi Shaw and Ishan Kishan within the first 5 overs. It handed them a significant advantage as these two young guns had made a mockery of the run-chase in the first game. Lanka further strangled India, first at 116-5 and finally at 193-7. Needing 83 runs in 89 balls, it was completely Lanka’s game. They had no business losing it from such a strong position.
But they did just that. Lanka squandered the opportunity of finally defeating India in Lanka. Their bowlers couldn’t maintain the same intensity and let India off the hook. Mickey Arthur, Sri Lanka’s coach was visibly upset at how they went about things in the last 15 overs. This defeat would take a huge toll on Sri Lanka who are already reeling from a series of defeats. It will require a Herculean effort from the entire team to regroup and win the 3rd game. They will surely take a lot of heart from running India close but can they take the extra leap to win? Time will tell.
India found themselves in unknown territory in the 2nd ODI chasing 276. Their top order and middle order barring Suryakumar Yadav and Manish Pandey to a certain extent came up croppers. Krunal Pandya fought all he could but was dismissed in the most inopportune time. India were staring down at a defeat when Deepak Chahar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar joined forces. The duo weathered bowling changes, discipline, and intensity. They almost exhausted the Lankan team before pouncing on them with their calculated attack. Their 3-wicket win comes as a huge morale booster for this young bunch who have unfairly been termed the ‘B’ team.
If the first game was all about dazzle and sparkle, India showed grit and gumption in the 2nd game. Their win is a one for the ages where two bowlers showed remarkable maturity to pull off a stunning win. India will be high on confidence going into the 3rd ODI. The prospect of them being able to complete a consecutive clean series sweep over Sri Lanka in their den won’t be lost on them. Their juggernaut will be difficult to halt.
