However, man of the match in the first ODI ,Virender Sehwag, who was doubtful for the Nagpur game after sustaining a knee injury during the first match, has been cleared to play in Friday's game.
Lanka will be without key spinner Muttiah Muralitharan and paceman Dilhara Fernando due to finger injuries as the duo has been ruled out of the series.
India won the first match at Rajkot by 3 runs after scoring a record total of 414.
