MS Dhoni leads India to face Sri Lanka in the second Twenty20 International (T20I) at his hometown Ranchi on Friday. The defeat in the first game against a young and inexperienced Sri Lankan side came as a shocker but the Men in Blue (well, Sri Lanka are, technically speaking, Men in Blue as well) remain positive, drawing confidence from their 3-0 win against Australia as they marched to the No. 1 ranking in this format. Meanwhile, Dinesh Chandimal’s young Lankans will hope to continue building on the momentum they got at Pune. It will not be easy but we have seen that the game is full of surprises.
