Captains at the toss
Dasun Shanaka We would have bowled as well because the pitch was under the covers. The openers and the top-order need to fire. Two changes. Janith Liyanage and Jeffrey Vandersay are out. Binura Fernando and Danushka Gunathilaka in.
Rohit Sharma We are going to bowl first, just want to have a score in front of us. It's going to get colder as the game goes on. Same team for us. The changes don't depend on win or loss. It's just about what the team wants. We also have a look at niggle/injuries. We also have to take care of the guys. So the changes don't depend on the result. If we feel the need to change we will change.

Ishan Kishan ahead of the second T20I
Feeling very good to be here and be part of the team and performing well as a youngster when we get the opportunity. We will look to do the same thing today as well. Wicket looks pretty dry. There might be some moisture, but looks pretty fine. I think as a batter I was just looking to watch the ball and play my shots. Even when I got out on 89 I was not thinking I missed my hundred. Just wanted to score few more runs for my team.
