India won the toss and choose to bowl first against Sri Lanka

India captain Virat Kohli won the toss and chose to bowl against Sri Lanka in their second one-day international in Pallekele on Thursday.

The visitors, who lead the five-match series 1-0, have retained the XI that crushed Sri Lanka by nine wickets in Dambulla on Sunday.

“You might see different guys coming in at different times of the innings, or people bowling at different times,” said Kohli about his tactics for the match.

Sri Lanka captain Upul Tharanga has made three changes to the starting lineup in a bid to reverse his team’s wilting fortunes.

Fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera and all-rounders Akila Dananjaya and Milinda Siriwardana have been drafted in.

“We have to be patient and put up a very good batting display. When the batsmen get set, they have to get the big one (score),” said Tharanga.
