LIVE BLOG: Rahul, Rohit give hosts explosive start
Stamping their dominance against clueless Sri Lankan side, India look to reassert their authority in the underway second T20 international of the three-match rubber at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore. After pocketing the Test and One-Day International series, Rohit Sharma-led Team India registered a comprehensive 93-run victory in the first T20I against Sri Lanka, which helped the hosts take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
The hosts aim to heap dominance on the visitors through their flamboyant approach in batting with the likes of Rohit, Lokesh Rahul, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Manish Pandey and Hardik Pandya. The bowling department, however, depends on wrist spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, who caused plenty of trouble for the uninspired Sri Lankan batting in the first game. Alongside Chahal, fellow wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav remains to be an important player with pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Jaydev Unadkat providing depth to the bowling.
