- New Delhi: India and Sri Lanka will take part in the second Test match in Nagpur, starting on Friday.
- After dominating the rain-affected first Test, India will go as overwhelming favourites in this match.
- Denied by the Weather Gods in the opening Test, a supremely confident India are set to make some strategic changes to ensure that their dominance of Sri Lanka continues unchallenged in the second match.
