Winner of SL Vs IND Second ODI
Question in detailSri Lanka Vs India 2nd ODI: While the hosts were hoping to come out strong in the ODI series, change in format did no good to their quest as India continued their dominance with a thumping win at Dambulla. A nine wicket loss, the biggest ever for Lanka in terms of balls remaining while defending a target of 200 or more runs, adds to Lanka's pang. The hosts are now eyeing a competitive hand from their batsmen and bowlers, who as of now have drastically failed to vie Indian warriors in the Test series and the first ODI as well.
Lanka was once 139 for one in the 24th over but late downfall, which saw 6 Lankan batsmen collapsing at a mere of 16 runs, restricted them to 216. Much to Lanka's Dambulla apathy, the hosts lost their 9 wickets in 19 overs scoring just 77 runs. The hosts wouldn't have thought such a dismal start of the ODI series. Lanka will have to toil hard if they want to become the winner of SL Vs IND second ODI.
While Lanka is yet to taste a victory, India has got a strenuous start to the five-match ODI series winning the opening match at Dambulla. Now, both the teams move to Pallekele for Sri Lanka Vs India 2nd ODI with hopes to win it. With 0-1 down ahead of the second game, Lanka will be under tremendous pressure when facing dominant India at Pallekele. India, on the other side, will come up with clear intent to become the winner of SL Vs IND second ODI. The visitors have been ascendant throughout. It's now over to India as to how much freedom they give to Lanka in the second ODI commencing on August 24.
Will India continue their destructive show in Sri Lanka's second ODI?
