India vs Sri Lanka is back with the 2nd T20, with the promise of a lot more runs than we saw in the first match, when the bowlers made merry on a green wicket. India need to bounce back from a five-wicket defeat to level the series up, and the only way to do that is by playing some good cricket (yup, I am stating the obvious).
The batsmen need to fire (there I go stating the obvious again) after their poor show in Pune, and you feel if they do, this will be India's to win.
Hello everyone and welcome to IBTimes India's one-of-a-kind (not, really, just for the effect, you know) live blog. Stay right here as I, Deepak Vikraman, take you through the entire match as it happens. All the updates will come up on its own, so you don't need to keep that F5 at the ready.
Hopefully, this will be a fun match, with lots of runs (yup, that is what T20 is all about). Sri Lanka's young bowlers were a breath of fresh air in that first match, but it remains to be seen if that bubble will burst in this more batsman-friendly Ranchi wicket.
With a dodgy outfield, we might get to see plenty of boundaries, because the way the ground looked on Thursday, not too many players will want to dive around, not with the World T20 so close.
