India v/s Sri Lanka, 2nd ODI

India v/s Sri Lanka, 2nd ODI

For the first time in the series, the Islanders had shown some sign of a fight back and it proved quite brutal for the Indians. He eventually got to his half-century, his third successive 50 against India after 52 in Ranchi and 59 in Kolkata in 2014.

The men in blue suffered a dramatic batting collapse, losing seven wickets in the space of 22 runs to be reduced to 131/7 at one stage thanks to excellent bowling by Sri Lanka off-spinner Akila Dananjaya, who returned with a six-wicket haul.

India were nearly set to lose but MS Dhoni and Bhuvneswar Kumar displayed a resolute performance to complete a tricky chase under the Duckworth-Lewis method with 16 balls to spare.

Where to stream India vs Sri Lanka 3rd ODI live? India, chasing a modest target of 202, were cruising at 139/3 in the 32nd over when a well-set Rohit Sharma fell to Rangana Herath.

Probable XI: Virat Kohli (Captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Kedar Jadhav, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, Yuzvendra Chahal, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah. Not too many runs have come but no casualty as well. Dhoni picked up the odd single and shielded Ishant. At 131 for 7, India was at sea with no place to escape. It's unlikely that there would be any experimentation any further as far as the batting order is concerned.

India lost 7/22 on Thursday, the only time Sri Lanka seemed in a winning position. It remains the highest score by a wicketkeepr-batsman in ODIs. The former Indian captain played his trademark innings.

But Ranchi boy was smart enough to stand still to save his wicket. But after adding four more runs, the Mumbai batsman was adjudged leg before wicket off Dananjaya.

He dealt two more blows to leave India reeling on 131-7 when Dhoni reprised his finisher's role and Kumar proved a flawless foil as they bailed out India with a century partnership. If I had gone at No. 3, I would have still missed that ball because he (Akila Dananjaya) was bowling that well.

MS Dhoni was at his vintage best in the previous match, coming from behind to put an unbeaten 100-run partnership with Bhuvneshwar Kumar to seal a sensational victory.

Dhoni and the young lad, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, fought the most nerve-racking situation of the match easily.
