India and Sri Lanka face off in the second One-Day International (ODI) at the Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera, Ahmedabad on Thursday. Hosts India are leading the series 1-0 after a massive 169-run win in the first ODI at Cuttack.

The two sides meet at the Sardar Patel Motera Stadium, Ahmedabad for the second One-Day International (ODI) on Thursday. The first ODI was a largely one-sided affair, and the tourists looked undercooked and unprepared for the challenge. For this game, they would come in with better preparations and have already put in the hard yards in the nets. On the other hand, India would aim to keep up the intensity and deliver another performance.

Ahmedabad has often had help for spinners and that should help both sides. There could be some dew in play, which may push teams to opt to bat first if they win the toss. In the first game, Angelo Mathews took a similar decision and that backfired. India put up a huge score, which was way beyond Sri Lanka’s reach once they started slow.
