Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka won the toss and elected to field first against India in the second game of the three-match Twenty20 International series in Colombo.
Sri Lanka made two changes to the line-up from Sunday with Sadeera Samarawickrama and Ramesh Mendis returning to the side in place of Charith Asalanka and Ashen Bandara.
India who were forced to make several changes after Krunal Pandya tested positive for COVID-19, handed debuts for four players.
Accordingly, Devdutt Padikkal, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Chetan Sakariya and Nitish Rana received their T20I caps today.
India lead the series 1-0 after winning the first T20 by 38 runs on Sunday.
Although the second game was due to be played yesterday, following the confirmation of a COVID infection within the Indian camp, the match was rescheduled for today.
