The second India vs Sri Lanka Test, a day-night contest, begins on March 12 in Bengaluru. While India will look to sustain the momentum from their comprehensive win in the first Test, Sri Lanka will be aiming for, at least, a much better fight.
India remains at 5th spot with 5 wins, 3 losses and 2 draws. India will be hoping to put up another dominating performance and whitewash the opposition. This is a day-night Test match and it promises to be a spectacle under lights.

IND vs SL, 1st Test Pitch Report:
The surface here is a pretty balanced one with something in it for both the batters and bowlers. The first session will be the easiest phase to bat and the pacers will enjoy bowling in the twilight session of the day which happens to be the 3rd session. Both teams will prefer to bat first.

Top Picks for IND vs SL Dream11 Match:
Top Picks – India
Virat Kohli has scored 8007 runs in 100 Test matches at an average of 50.36 which includes 27 hundreds and a highest score of 254. He looked in good touch in the previous match despite getting out on 45 and will look to put up a big score in this match.
Ravichandran Ashwin went past Kapil Dev in the previous match by picking up 436 wickets in his 85th Test. The off spinner will be India’s best bowler in this match and also is pretty handy with the bat having amassed 2905 runs.
