SL vs IND 2nd ODI Match Preview
Sri Lanka’s search for the win continues as they lost the first match of the series by seven wickets. Avishka Fernando and Bhanuka gave an excellent start to the team but couldn’t convert into a big score. At No.3, Rajapaks batted decently. In the middle-order, Dasun Shanaka and Asalanka rebuild the innings but were slow in their approach. Still, in the end, Karunaratne batted brilliantly and helped the team to reach a good total.
The bowling department looked utterly clueless in the last game as they conceded many runs and did not pick up many wickets. Dhananjaya de Silva picked up two wickets. Chameera, Udana, and Asalanka leaked runs, and if Sri Lanka wants to make a comeback in this series, they need to improve their bowling performance a lot.
Indian team started the series with a bang as they won the first match comfortably by seven wickets. Both youngsters, Prithvi Shaw and Ishan Kishan smashed the bowlers all around the park and took the game away from the opposition in just 10 to 15 overs. Skipper Dhawan batted well but did not have enough runs left to score a hundred. In the middle-order, Manish Pandey and Surya Kumar Yadav also played a decent inning.
All the bowlers did an outstanding job except for Bhuvneshwar, who conceded many runs and went wicketless. Kuldeep Yadav, Deepak Chahar, and Chahal managed to pick up two wickets each. India is in excellent form, and they will be looking to win the series by winning the next match.
