India vs SL 2nd Test : Virat Kohli can chose these probable XI to take 10 lead
After witnessing a thrilling draw in the rain-truncated first game, the two teams will look to draw first blood when they face each other in the second test. The match is scheduled to be played from November 24 at the Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur. The hosts will bank on their three big guns - Virat Kohli, Lokesh Rahul and Cheteshwar Pujara - to play the long innings in this match. Pujara hit a gritty fifty in the first innings while Kohli and Rahul scored 104* and 79 respectively in the second innings. With Bhuvneshwar Kumar not around, India's bowling is going to rely mainly on seamers Mohammed Shami and Umesh Yadav. The hosts will take a lot of heart from the fact that they were able to create a chance of a win from an unfavorable situation. So it is India who will be the more confident side ahead of the second test. India also have a decent record at this venue - three wins, a draw and a loss in five tests - and we expect them to gain a 1-0 lead.
