Sri Lanka opt to bowl against unchanged India

GETTYIndia vs Sri Lanka live stream how to watch the match onliine and on TV

Another record-breaking knock by Rohit Sharma and back-breaking 12-ball spell by spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav scripted India's thumping 88-run win in the second T20 global against Sri Lanka in Indore on Friday, which gave the hosts an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

10 sixes by Rohit, the most for India, against Sri Lanka, and on Indian soil. Fresh from a thumping victory in the first match, India will look to continue their all-round performance to clinch the series against Sri Lanka in the second Twenty20 global (T20I).

Here, we look at the two good and bad stories of the match. The Sri Lankan team continued to lose wickets and was stuck at 87 runs in 16 overs.

Earlier after being put in to bat, skipper Rohit Sharma blasted the fastest Twenty20 global (T20I) century off just 35 balls to power India to a enormous total of 260/5.

The in-form batsman had recently scored his third one day worldwide double ton against Sri Lanka in Mohali. The Indian batsmen have made merry against a toothless attack.




Talking about records, Indian batsmen hit 21 sixes in all in their innings, equalling the mark set by West Indies. The incredible ton and his stunning partnership with KL Rahul is the talk among cricket fans in Twitter.

There was never a boring moment till the time Rohit was at the crease as he pulled, cut and drove the clueless Lankan bowlers at will.

Sri Lanka: Thisara Perera (Captain), Upul Tharanga, Angelo Mathews, Kusal Janith Perera, Danushka Gunathilaka, Niroshan Dickwella (wicketkeeper), Asela Gunaratne, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Dasun Shanaka, Chaturanga de Silva, Sachith Pathirana, Dananjaya De Silva, Nuwan Pradeep, Vishwa Fernando and Dusmantha Chameera.

While in the absence of Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma will continue to lead the Side in rest of series matches as well and his men for today's encounter may include KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Dinesh Karthik, Manish Pandey, MS Dhoni as wicketkeeper-batsman, Hardik Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Basil Thampi, Jasprit Bumrah, and Yuzvendra Chahal.
