Rohit had smiled sheepishly at Thisara after the visiting captain had called correctly again. KL Rahul has grabbed his opportunity at the top of the other with back-to-back half centuries. Thisara Perera's team is stuck with their squad.

IST: OUT! Kuldeep removes Gunathilaka for 3. The previous few games have proved that the question is not who will win, but by how much will Sri Lanka lose. He missed out on his hundred, though, after being caught sensationally by Niroshan Dickwella off Nuwan Pradeep in the 19th over. Put to bat first in the second T20I, India got off to a flying start thanks to Rohit's blistering batting. The previous fastest T20I century among India batsmen was 46 balls by KL Rahul, against West Indies in Lauderhill past year. Indian Cricket team is unchanged and the game will begin and Indian team captain Rohit Sharma is assured to continue the same as that of the first T20. Leading the three-match series 2-0, the Indian team will hope to feature new youngsters such as Basil Thampi, Washington Sundar and Mohammad Siraj.

Once Kusal was gone, Sri Lanka completely collapsed as they went from 156/4 to being bowled out for 172. They kicked off the 261-run chase in fine fashion at Indore, before they lost their way.

India national cricket team thrashed SriLanka by 93 runs to lead with 1-0 in the three-match series. The visitors made a couple of changes in their playing XI by bringing in Sadeera Samarawickrama and Chathuranga de Silva.
