Under the leadership of a new Test captain, Rohit Sharma, India showcased an all-round performance in the first Test match against Sri Lanka in Mohali. India won the game by a huge margin of an innings and 222 runs and, thereby, took a 1-0 lead in the series.
The second Test is scheduled to be played from 12th to 16th March 2022. Heading into the next Test, India would be looking to continue the winning momentum and seal the series 2-0. Here’s a look at our predicted playing of the Indian Cricket Team for the second Test:
IND vs SL: India’s Predicted Playing XI Against Sri Lanka, India vs Sri Lanka, 2nd Test
- Openers: Mayank Agarwal and Rohit Sharma
In the absence of KL Rahul, India persisted with Mayank Agarwal to open the innings with Rohit Sharma in the first Test. However, he once again failed to convert the start into a big score. Agarwal scored 33 off 49 balls in the last Test match. Shubman Gill is waiting for his opportunity but the team management is likely to persist with Mayank Agarwal for the next Test as well.
