India Vs Srilanka 2nd ODI will be played at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur, after the match was shifted from Vizag due to the Telangana issue in Andhra Pradesh.

Cricket Nirvana and Willow TV will show the online live cricket streaming of the 2nd ODI between India and Sri Lanka.
The men in blue, Team India won the 1st ODI against Sri Lanka in Rajkot by just 3 runs. With India already winning the 1st ODI and taking a 1-0 lead in the 5 ODI match series, Sri Lanka would very much want to bounce back strongly and thus level the series 1-1.
The Nagpur pitch is the same pitch where the Sri Lanka scored over 200 runs in the 1st T20 runs, which they won by 29 runs. However, Sri Lanka would be under pressure as they won’t be having Muttiah Murlidharan and Dilhara Fernando in the playing eleven, because of injury. Sangakkara would be hoping that his good form with the bat continues and would even want Dilshan and Jayasuriya to give them a solid start.
Yuvraj Singh would also be not playing in the 2nd ODI as he is down with flu. However, Sehwag has been declared fit and would be playing in today’s match. MS Dhoni who is in a good form, would again want Sehwag and Tendulkar to fire at the top.
Team India has a good record at the Nagpur stadium against Sri Lanka, with India having played 12 ODIs here and winning 6 of them. On the other hand the Sri Lankan’s have played 3 matches and have faced defeat in all of them.
The toss would be crucial in the 2nd odi between Ind and Sl as it’s a day night affair and the dew factor would come into play in the second half of the cricket match. However, one need not be surprised if the captain winning the toss, opts to field first.
