SL vs IND Today Match Prediction, 2nd T20I, 27th July 2021

KhelTalk is the only destination that brings you the finest today’s match prediction that you can trust. We are here for SL vs. IND Today Match Prediction, 2nd T20I, Online Cricket Betting Tips, which will provide every user with a clear picture of which team and in what aspect they can place their bets.


India won the 1st T20I match of the series comprehensively. India posted 164 runs after some blitz from Suryakumar Yadav and a fighting knock of 46 runs from captain Shikhar Dhawan. 164 was a good total on a two-paced wicket of Colombo, and bowlers did the job and bundled Srilanka out on 126 runs. Bhuvneshwar Kumar was India’s best bowler and picked a 4-fer which bagged him the Man of Match award.

India won the 1st match, but they would have liked a bit more ruthlessness from the batting lineup after when India was 113 for 2 in 14 overs. Indian batting couldn’t finish well and only scored 43 runs in the last 5 overs. The form of Hardik Pandya is still a concern, whether, with bat or ball, he hasn’t fired on this tour. These are minor tweaks which India will look to fix and seal the series. Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devdutt are the only players who haven’t got a chance on this tour. It will be interesting to see if they will get a chance in place of Prithvi Shaw or Sanju Samson.

  • Form guide W-W-W-L-W
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s economy is just 6.37 in 2021 T20Is.
  • Hardik Pandya has a batting average of just 9.16 against Srilanka in T20Is.

Top Batsmen from 1st match

  • Shikhar Dhawan– 46 runs at 127.78 strike rate 
  • Suryakumar Yadav– 50 runs at a 147.06 strike rate 
  • Sanju Samson- 27 runs at 135.00 strike rate 

Top Bowler from 1st match 

  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar- 4 wickets in 3.3 overs at 6.30 economy 
  • Deepak Chahar– 2 wickets in 3 overs at 8.00 economy
  • Yuzvendra Chahal- 1 wicket in 4 overs at 4.80 economy 


Srilanka failed to chase 165 runs, even after winning some momentum at the halfway mark. Srilanka started strong with the bat and were 51 for 1 after powerplay, but they lost the plot against spinners in the middle overs. Srilanka lost the match, but they can take some positives from the match. In the bowling department, Dushmantha Chameera and Wanindu Hasaranga were again outstanding. They were the reason why Srilanka held back India even after they were cruising at 113 for 2 in 14 overs.

Srilankan batting lineup needs to show some positive intent against Indian spinners, as they showed in the last ODI. They were stuck at one end and weren’t able to rotate the strike, which increased the pressure of the required run rate and eventually resulted in the middle-order collapse. Charith Asalanka was the only one who showed intent against spinners. Srilanka would be hoping that senior batsmen like Dhananjaya de Silva and Shanaka will take more responsibility in the middle overs and help Srilanka to strike a comeback in 2nd T20 and keep series hope alive.

  • Form guide L-L-L-L-L
  • Dushmantha Chameera has picked 12 wickets at 6.57 economy in 2021 T20Is.
  • Under Shanaka’s captaincy, Wanindu Hasaranga has picked 10 wickets in just 4 matches.

Top Batsmen of Srilanka from 1st match 

  • Asalanka- 44 runs at 169.23 strike rate
  • Dasun Shanaka– 16 runs at 114.29 strike rate
  • Avishka Fernando- 26 runs at 113.04 strike rate

Top Bowler of Srilanka from 1st match

  • Dushmantha Chameera- 2  wickets in 4 overs at 6.00 economy
  • Wanindu Hasaranga- 2 wickets in 4 overs at 7.00 economy 
  • C Karunaratne- 1 wicket in 4 overs at 8.50 economy

Weather Report

The weather will be mostly cloudy on the matchday. We already saw some showers throughout on this tour but there are no significant chances of rain on 27th July. The weather will be perfect with some clouds around but humidity will be again a problem for fielders.

  • Rain: 19%
  • Humidity 82%
  • Wind speed: 13 km/h
  • Temperature- 28 Degree Celsius

Pitch Report

R.Premadasa Stadium’s pitch has become slow as the tour has progressed. In the 1st T20I, we saw turn and grip from both sides and bowlers like Udana were using cutters to perfection. We can expect the same from the pitch. Spinners will again play a crucial role in middle overs and change-ups will be the main weapon of bowlers.

SL vs IND– Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

India expected to win the match against Srilanka

KhelTalk experts feel that India will win against Srilanka and seal the series. India was the better side in 1st T20I and looked like a more complete team for these two-paced wickets. Suryakumar Yadav continued his redemption at International cricket and would be one to watch out for. On the other hand, hosts made a comeback in the back end of Indian innings but were outclassed by Indian bowlers while chasing. India has shown more maturity in crucial moments throughout this tour. We expect them to win against Srilanka in the 2nd T20I again.

Top Batsman from India – Suryakumar Yadav (4.75 odds)

Suryakumar Yadav has been the story of 2021 for Indian cricket. After grinding in the domestic circuit for years, he finally got a chance in international cricket this year. He has grabbed the opportunity with both hands and looks like he has cemented his spot in the Indian white-ball setup. He again looked in deft touch and smashed 2nd fifty of his T20I career. His ability to play with the field is exceptional and he looks like a player of a different pedigree. He has already bagged the man of the series award in ODIs and smashed fifty in the first match, and he is our top batsman from India.

Top Batsman from Srilanka– Avishka Fernando(3.25 odds)

Avishka Fernando started the innings well and put a lot of pressure on the bowlers in the powerplay. He scored fifty in the last ODI and again looked good, but he threw his wicket for 26 runs. This has been the story of his international career so far. He starts well and looks set to score big but plays a rash shot to get out. Avishka Fernando is regarded as the next big thing in Srilankan cricket, and there are so many expectations from him. He showed spark on this tour but needs to show some maturity. He can take away a match from India if he stays for long as he did in the 3rd ODI. He can give returns, he is the top batsman pick from Srilanka.

Top Bowler from India– Bhuvneshwar Kumar (4.00 odds)

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is finally coming into his rhythm. After resting the final ODI, Bhuvneshwar Kumar turned up for 1st T20I and rattled Srilankan batters. He finished 22 for 4 wickets in 3.3 overs. This tour is crucial for him, given many young bowlers raising their hand for a World T20 spot. On a two-paced wicket, he showed his experience and mixed the pace very well. He is the go-to man for Shikhar Dhawan, and he has delivered whenever he is called up. Bhuvneshwar Kumar is looking in magnificent form, and he is our pick for best bowler from India.

Top Bowler from Srilanka – Wanindu Hasaranga (3.25 odds)

Wanindu Hasaranga helped Srilanka to strike a comeback in death overs against Indian batters. His unpredictability is a massive threat for Indian batters. He took wickets of Sanju Samson and Suryakumar Yadav, who were looking really comfortable on this pitch. Wanindu Hasaranga has created many problems for the Indian team on this tour and will be the biggest threat in the 2nd T20I. Indian team is struggling against his bowling and looking to play him safely. He can create problems for the Indian team again and can give you big returns.
