India Vs Sri Lanka: There has been a big change in Team India before the second T20 match against Sri Lanka. Team India’s star wicket-keeper batsman Sanju Samson has been ruled out of the remaining two matches due to injury. Jitesh Sharma has been selected as the replacement of Sanju Samson. Punjab Kings wicket-keeper batsman Jitesh Sharma has been selected in Team India for the first time.
BCCI has issued a statement informing about Sanju Samson being out of the series. Sanju Samson was injured while fielding in the first T20 match against Sri Lanka.
