Pandya To The Rescue?There's no refuting that Hardik Pandya comes across as an astute skipper, and it will be interesting to see the changes he makes for this game. By bowling three overs in Powerplay in the first T20I, Pandya showed he is not afraid to take big calls.

Team News - Sri LankaThere's very little chance of Sri Lanka flirting with their top seven, thus Avishka Fernando will have to wait. Kasun Rajitha proved to be expensive in the last game, and he might make way for another pacer.
