Unchanged India opt to bowl again

India won the toss in Indore and chose to bowl first yet again, having done the same in the abandoned first T20 on Sunday.

Both teams named unchanged XIs. Kuldeep Yadav and Washington Sundar kept legspinner Yuzvendra Chahal out of India’s XI, with Jaspreet Bumrah, Navdeep Saini and Shardul Thakur forming the frontline seam-bowling options.

Sri Lanka, meanwhile, kept Angelo Mathews out of the side, preferring spin-bowling allrounder Dhananjaya de Silva in the XI instead.

Rain was not forecast to interrupt the game.

India: 1 Shikhar Dhawan, 2 KL Rahul, 3 Virat Kohli (capt), 4 Shreyas Iyer, 5 Rishabh Pant (wk), 6 Shivam Dube, 7 Washington Sundar, 8 Shardul Thakur, 9 Kuldeep Yadav, 10 Navdeep Saini 11 Jasprit Bumrah
