Sri Lanka vs India 2nd T20I Betting Tips 28/07/2021

Teams Status

Sri Lanka

In the series opener, Sri Lanka were yet again pretty decent with the ball, containing India to a modest 164-5 but their batters could not get the job done. 

In the run chase, they completely lost momentum in the middle overs as debutant Varun Chakravarthy and experienced leggie Yuzvendra Chahal dominated before Bhuvneshwar Kumar demolished the islanders’ tail. Only debutant Charith Asalanka managed to enhance his position with a well-made 44 off just 26 balls but it wasn’t enough.

Earlier, the Lankan bowlers, especially Dushmantha Chameera and Chamika Karunaratne, were impressive. The pair were superb at the death and kept the flow of runs in check in the final few overs.


Suryakumar Yadav’s stock in ODIs is already quite high, and now he will grow in stature in T20Is, too, thanks to his 34-ball half century – the game’s only 50 – in the series opener.

What’s even more remarkable was that he looked in complete control of his knock up until he holed out in the 16th over. The man’s talent warrants that an eye be kept on him through the rest of the series.

Bhuvneshwar Kumar was named the player of the match but truth be told, three of his four victims were tail-enders. For some, Yadav deserved the award more.

A slight concern for the Men in Light Blue should be the recent form of Hardik Pandya, who has yet to play a decent knock on the ongoing tour.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Prithvi Shaw to score over 20.5 runs @ 1.832

Prithvi Shaw is too good a batsman to get out on the very first ball of his T20I career. That unfortunate thing happened to him in the opening T20I. A batsman of his promise should bounce back immediately. We do not expect him to score heaps but he should at least cover the 20.5-run spread. This bet can be found on 22Bet.

Tip: Best bowler on India – Yuzvendra Chahal @ 3.5

Yuzvendra Chahal has historically done well against and in Sri Lanka. He was again excellent in the first T20I but was unlucky to only get one wicket. We expect him to pick up more scalps in the next game, which is why we like this bet. The play can be found on 22Bet.


India did not have to be at their 100% and still won the game. We expect them to flex their muscles in the next game and maybe even secure a dominant win and the series.
