Kumar Sangakkara has won the toss and his team is going to bat first in the second T20I at the PCA Stadium in Mohali. The Indian team has been hit by Swine Flu with Sreesanth testing positive and taking treatment in the hospital. Gautam Gambhir was suspected to have the same flu but has tested negative. Gambhir surprisingly is playing today although India has made as many as three changes.
Rohit Sharma, Ashok Dinda and Pragyan Ojha are missing out and replacing them are Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja and Sudeep Tyagi who will be making his international debut. Sri Lanka have made a change with medium pace all-rounder Kaushal Weeraratne replacing Pushpakumara.
The ball is expecting to swing around right through the match, the pace and bounce should be good at Mohali like always. Dew is expected to make life tough for the spinners in the latter half although the ball is going to wobble a lot under the lights.
India XI : Gautam Gambhir, Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni (Captain and Wicket Keeper), Yusuf Pathan, Ravindra Jadeja, Ashish Nehra, Ishant Sharma and Sudeep Tyagi
