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 ODI, 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 started this series as a favorite and lived up to their expectations in the 1st ODI. They hammered Srilanka by 7 wickets in 1st ODI. India looked way ahead of Srilanka in every department. Bowling first Indian bowlers were put under pressure by Srilankan openers in the first 10 overs. After spinners came into action, Srilanka started losing their wickets and were restricted to 262 runs on the excellent batting pitch of Colombo. In the second innings, India chased easily even before the 40 over the mark.

Youngsters were the highlight of the 1st match. Whether it was Deepak Chahar and Krunal Pandya in bowling or Prithvi Shaw and Ishan Kishan in batting, they all showcased their high-class skills. India will look to continue in the same fashion again in the 2nd ODI and seal the series. In between all the youngsters, it was Shikhar Dhawan who held the key to success. He played a 2nd fiddle role in batting and stabilized the ship while giving freedom to other batters to express themselves and score freely.

  • Shikhar Dhawan is the top scorer for India in 2021 ODIs with 255 runs at an average of 85.00
  • Kuldeep and Chahal’s bowling average is 62.85 and 38.90, respectively, without Dhoni in ODIs.
  • India has the worst bowling average (123.50) in the first 10 overs since 2020.

Top Batsmen from 1st ODI

  • Shikhar Dhawan– 86 runs at 90.53 strike rate 
  • Ishan Kishan– 59 runs at a 140.48 strike rate 
  • Prithvi Shaw           43 runs at 179.17 strike rate 

Top Bowler from 1st ODI

  • Deepak Chahar– 2 wickets in 7 overs at 5.30 economy
  • Kuldeep Yadav– 2 wickets in 9 overs at 5.30 economy
  • Yuzvendra Chahal– 2 wickets in 10 overs at 5.20 economy


India outclassed Srilanka in all departments in the 1st ODI of the series. However, Srilanka started the match positively with 82 for 1 loss till 15 overs. Things began to fall after the introduction of spinners. The pitch played slow under sunlight and assisted spinners in the 1st half. The trio of Kuldeep, Chahal, and Krunal blocked the run flow in the middle overs, which resulted in wickets due to rash shots by Srilanka’s batters. 

Mickey Arthur would be hoping for a better show from all departments in the 2nd ODI. Srilankan bowling looked flat against Indian batters, but the story could’ve differed if fielders grabbed the chances. Ishan Kishan was dropped twice by Lankan fielders. He was dropped at the start of the innings and 2nd time by Chameera at long-on, when he was batting on the 30s. Batting of Karunaratne in death bowling was the only positive for them from 1st ODI. They will look to bounce back and level the series by playing more as a team.

  • From 1975- 2016 Srilanka only had 15 ODI captains, but from 2017- 2021, they have appointed 10 different captains. 
  • Srilanka has lost most ODIs in cricketing history.
  • Chameera has picked 14 wickets in 9 matches in 2021 at an average of 24.50

Top Batsmen of Srilanka from 1st ODI

  • C Karunaratne – 43 runs at 122.86 strike rate
  • Shanaka– 39 runs at 78.00 strike rate
  • Asalanka– 38 runs at 58.46 strike rate

Top Bowler of Srilanka Srilanka from 1st ODI

  • Dhananjaya de Silva– 2 wickets in 5 overs at 9.80 economy
  • Lakshan Sandakan  1  wickets in 8.4 overs at 6.10 economy
  • Dushmantha Chameera     0 wickets in 7 overs at 6.00 economy

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 again win against Srilanka in the 2nd ODI and seal the series. India outclassed Srilanka in all departments. Indian batting especially was very solid. India was scoring at 10 an over at one stage when Shaw and Kishan were batting with Dhawan. India will look to continue their dominance and bag series against a depleted Srilankan side.

Top Batsman from India – Shikhar Dhawan (3.25 odds)

Shikhar Dhawan scored unbeaten 86 runs in 1st ODI. He didn’t let the pressure of captaincy affect his game. In both captaincy and batting, he looked calm and composed. Despite great hitting from the other end, Dhawan played the 2nd fiddle role in most of his innings and took India home. He averages over 70 against Srilanka in ODI’s. You can’t go beyond Shikhar Dhawan in top batsman pick.

Top Batsman from Srilanka– Dhananjaya de Silva (4.50 odds)

Srilankan batting lineup heavily depends on Dhananjaya de Silva in ODIs. He scored a scratchy 14 runs in 1st ODI match before playing against the spin to Krunal’s arm ball. He is generally against spin and plays fast bowling well. After Kusal Perera is ruled out due to injury, all responsibility is to lead the batting department. In the 2nd ODI against England this year, he scored a good 91 on a tricky wicket. He has been around Srilankan cricket for some time now. He has not lived up to his potential but has shown glimpses of his brilliance. Srilanka’s fortunes will be depending on him. He is our top pick for batsman from Srilanka.

Top Bowler from Srilanka – Wanindu Hasaranga (4.00 odds)

Wanindu Hasaranga has been the sole warrior for Srilanka in the last couple of years. Whether it’s ball or bat, he has contributed to the team. He came into the limelight after picking 8 wickets at an astonishing average of 9.88 on Srilanka’s tour of Pakistan. Since then, he has never looked back. His unknown mystery leg-break bowling can be dangerous for the Indian side. He has picked only 5 wickets in 9 matches this year but has been the most economical bowler conceding at a 4.36 rate. Considering his unknown bowling style and performances in the last couple of years, he is our top pick for a bowler from Srilanka.

Top Bowler from India– Bhuvneshwar Kumar (3.75 odds)

Bhuvneshwar Kumar is the leader of this young Indian bowling lineup. His form has not been great lately. In 1st ODI, he conceded 63 at an economy of 7. Recently against England, he made his comeback after a long-term knee injury. His stats in 2021 are also not good. His economy is 6.38 in 2021, which is expensive for a bowler like Bhuvneshwar Kumar. He needs to put some strong on this tour to come back to his groove. He has picked 17 wickets against Srilanka at a healthy average of 29.88 in ODIs. He will be responsible for taking the new ball and giving a good start with the ball to India. Bhuvneshwar has been the best Indian bowler for some time now, and he knows how to come back from a lean patch. He is our pick for best bowler from India
