Sri Lanka vs India 2nd T20 2021 was rescheduled due to Krunal Pandya being tested positive for COVID-19 but the news is that all his close contacts have returned a negative test. This means that the series can continue as planned. India won the first match easily thanks to an excellent bowling performance but Sri Lanka has already shown that it cannot be taken lightly.
Sri Lanka vs India 2nd T20 2021
Sri Lanka may choose to make a few changes after its batting lineup collapsed in the previous match. Sri Lanka has lost ten out of the previous eleven T20's it has played and so there are obviously not too many compelling options using for places. Bhanuka Rajapaksa was impressive in the ODI's and may get a chance.
Likely playing 11 of Sri Lanka
Avishka Fernando, Minod Bhanuka (wk), Dhananjaya de Silva, Charith Asalanka, Dasun Shanaka (c), Bhhanuka Rajapaksa, Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Isuru Udana, Akila Dananjaya, Dushmantha Chameera.
India is also going to have to make a change now that Krunal Panday has been ruled out. Rahul Chahar is the player most likely to step in, although, that will weaken India's batting just a bit.
Likely playing 11 of India
Shikhar Dhawan (c), Prithvi Shaw, Ishan Kishan (wk), Suryakumar Yadav, Sanju Samson, Hardik Pandya, Rahul Chahar, Deepak Chahar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Varun Chakravarthy

Sri Lanka vs India 2nd T20 2021 Betting Predictions
Match Result Prediction
Sri Lanka bowled quite well in the previous match and India did not really dominate. It took a collapse of the Sri Lankan batting for India to be able to win. With Krunal Pandya out, India's batting is weaker and the bowling attack will also have to be re-shuffled. Sri Lanka could take advantage and level the series.
