The Sri Lankan team won the toss and elect to field first in the second Twenty-20 International match of Paytm series between India and Sri Lanka.
Rohit: “That’s the most important thing, toss doesn’t matter much but it’s what we do on the field that matters. We are happy batting first. Looks a good pitch and we need to do the same things that we did in the first game. Need to post a good total first up and then bowl well. Yes, it’s important not to be complacent and need to take things one game at a time. Just need to do the same good things over and over again. One needs the right attitude to execute the good habits repeatedly. We are unchanged.”
Perera: “We would like to bowl first. Looks like a ground with small boundaries and so we want to chase whatever they put on the board. Two changes from the last XI, Sadeera and Chaturangaare in.”
