Axar Patel is back in the Indian squad while Kuldeep Yadav has been released. While Axar is likely to slot in back for Jayant Yadav, India may opt to rest either Jasprit Bumrah or Mohammed Shami and give chance to either Mohammed Siraj or Umesh Yadav.
For Sri Lanka, Lahiru Kumara, who got injured on Day 1, will give way to another fast bowler Dushmantha Chameera. Either left-arm spinner Praveen Jayawickrama or leg-spinner Jeffrey Vandersay is likely to replace Vishwa Fernando.

Fantasy cricket tips: the second Test will be a day-night contest and will be played with the pink ball. India have won both their home pink-ball Tests – against Bangladesh in Kolkata and England in Ahmedabad – and both Tests ended inside three days with pacers enjoying conditions versus Bangladesh and spinners versus England.
India haven’t lost a Test in Bangalore for the past 16 years. Spinners are once again expected to have a big say in the result. Ravindra Jadeja, who has 17 wickets in 3 matches at this venue, once again is the safest option for captaincy in your fantasy team, while Ashwin (23 wickets in 4 matches), or Virat Kohli (average of 60 in 3 Tests) are good vice-captaincy options.
