Yesterday cricbuzz prediction: “India aims for another series win after Mumbai jailbreak

Securing a series at home has become almost routine for the Indian side. This is true even if you don’t get the first nomination at the park. On Thursday (January 5th), Hardik Pandya’s revamped T20I team continues to make positive progress, so jump at the chance to add it to your silverware collection.

But it may not be as easy as it sounds, especially after a close result in the series opener in Mumbai. India struggled to bat at Wankhede his stadium for most of the innings and in the final few overs Deepak he had to be saved by Hooda and Axor his Patel. Newcomer Shivam Mavi got off to a good start with the ball, but in the end the game all but slipped as Dasun Shanaka and Wanindu Hasaranga brought Sri Lanka closer. Also in the final, Hardik played bowling Axor Patel against Chamika Karunaratne and the move paid off. Hardik stressed that the possibility of losing the match did not affect his decision to pass the ball to Axor, as he wanted to test his squad under pressure. was intended to be the first to hit at Wankede, and reiterated that the team would have to put themselves in a difficult situation that could help them in major tournaments.

The series is for takeout, but you can expect the same in Pune. From Sri Lanka’s point of view, they want similar performances from their bowlers to have the best chance of squaring the series. Keeping the likes of Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav at bay isn’t easy, but leaving them alone greatly reduces your chances.
