Young Indian pacer Navdeep Saini seems to be making the most of the opportunities given to him ahead of the World T20 to be played later this year in Australia. Saini came up with a corker yorker in the eight over of the Sri Lankan innings to castle a set Danushka Gunathilaka for 20 off 21 balls at Indore in the ongoing second T20I.

Gunathilaka was backing away on the drive and was clearly beaten for pace as the ball crashed onto the base of middle stump.

Earlier, Virat Kohli won the toss and the Indian captain has opted to field first in the second Twenty20 International against Sri Lanka at the Holkar Stadium at Indore on Tuesday. The three-match series is now reduced to a two-match series given that the 1st T20I in Guwahati was washed out without a ball being bowled.
India has gone in with the same combination as Guwahati. Jasprit Bumrah and Shikhar Dhawan return to the sides after successfully recovering from their injuries. The visitors to have kept their same playing XI.
India: Shikhar Dhawan, Lokesh Rahul, Virat Kohli(c), Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant(w), Shivam Dube, Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Navdeep Saini, Jasprit Bumrah
