Two neighbouring countries are ready to went under 2nd ODI in the 3 match ODI series today, at R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo starting from 3:00 PM IST.
After winning first match by 7 wickets India’s team B will be on their high notes of confidence while Sri Lankan team would try to find the ways to control the game against all firey Indians. “The way Indian players played, they’re very aggressive. We all know how good they are but our bowlers need to improve. Have to execute our plans well.” Dasun Shanaka, Sri Lanka’s captain, after his team’s loss in the first ODI
“IT was a great job from the bowlers to restrict them to 260. The spinners were excellent bowling in tandem. My batting is all about the situation. I just looked to rotate strike because the others were batting superbly. We’re playing the same side,” Shikhar Dhawan said on the toss today.
Pitch Report: As per the forecast, the conditions are expected to be cloudy in certain phases. Even as there was both swing and turn on offer in the first game, batting is expected to be easy. Sri Lanka, in specific, would look to be a little more dominant than they were. Expect slightly higher scores.
