India vs Sri Lanka LIVE Cricket Score, 2nd Test Ind vs SL Live Updates: After a thrilling encounter in Kolkata, the action now shifts to Nagpur as India takes on Sri Lanka in the 2nd Test of the three-match series. The last match played at this venue was a low-scoring affair, with 215 made by India being the highest score of the match. However, we would be surprised if a similar wicket is prepared for this encounter, given that India is looking to prepare for the South Africa series. Despite the grass on the wicket, Sri Lankan captain Dinesh Chandimal believes that it will assist the spinners. Going by that statement, we can hope that life will be easier for the batsmen. As far as the team combination goes, Murali Vijay is certain to replace Shikhar Dhawan who is missing out due to personal reasons. Apart from him, India can also bring in Vijay Shankar in place of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Shankar will not only act as the third seamer but will also add depth to India’s batting. We are expecting five sunny days in Nagpur, with maximum temperature in mid-30s. So, there is no fear of rain and we should have uninterrupted play.
