Chandimal fractures thumb, in doubt for India series

It was a familiar tormentor for the home side as Jasprit Bumrah rocked their top-order and continued to dent hopes in the death overs; hereby picking his maiden 5-wicket haul.

On the other hand, Niroshan Dickwella and Kusal Mendis will have to kick as well as they need to alter their meaningful contributions towards the match. One won't be able to express oneself so that thing which he said in the first match is till with me and I shall try to carry it forward, ' he said. The visitors slipped from 109-0 to 131-7 before an unbeaten 100-run eight-wicket partnership between Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Bhuvneshwar Kumar pulled the team through.

Having already secured a 2-0 lead, India will look to seal the series against Sri Lanka in the third of the five-match ODI series at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Pallekele on Sunday.

Post this, the players remained on the pitch, with MS Dhoni asleep, security cleared the hurls, and the match was resumed soon after with India clinching the match subsequently.

The feeling of being challenged so obviously doesn't faced by the team India in this series, until Dananjaya came along and he turned the second ODI on its head. They are also emotional and passionate about Sri Lanka cricket, and the national team are struggling against India of late in the Test series, and now ODIs. He was ably supported by Bhuvneshwar Kumar who couldn't scalp any wicket but put a break on the Sri Lankan batting.

Dinesh Chandimal was struck on his right thumb by a bouncer from Hardik Pandya.

Apart from Rohit (122 not out), former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (61 not out) played a ideal support role at the other end after India's top order got exposed with the scoreboard reading 61 runs for four wickets down in 15.1 overs.

Bumrah was awarded man of the match for his brilliant bowling performance.

India have retained their winning combination from the last two ODIs while Sri Lanka have brought in Lahiru Thirimanne and Dinesh Chandimal in place of injured Gunathilaka and suspended Tharanga.
