IND vs SL Live Score 2nd ODI, India vs Sri Lanka Live Score, 2nd ODI
On Thursday, the 12th of January, India will lock horns with Sri Lanka in the 2nd ODI at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Sri Lanka lost the T20I series by 2-1 and are 1-0 down in the ODI series as well, it’s a do-or-die game for them with the series on the line.
Despite missing a few senior players, India managed to win the T20 Is and will be raring to bag the ODI series. Although the return of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma has boosted their batting, the focus will be on Shreyas Iyer and the other youngsters.
It was Virat Kohli’s who came out trumps at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Skipper Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill laid the platform with classy half-centuries, and Virat Kohli continued the onslaught with his 45th ODI hundred as India posted 373/7 in their allotted 50 overs.
The Men in Blue would look to continue their good run of form in the second ODI, as India will look to seal the series with a game in hand.
With most of the senior players back in action, it will be a very tough task for Sri Lanka to get over the line in this series.
On the other hand, Sri Lanka have lots of concerns. Their bowlers let them down after opting to bowl first on a solid batting track. Virat Kohli made them pay with a fantastic knock.
The Island Nation had a huge task ahead of them, chasing 374 to win. While Pathum Nissanka held one end up with a fighting half century, wickets fell regularly at the other end. Once Nissanka got out, it was thought that the visitors would fold out quickly, but Dasun Shanaka had other ideas as he continued his rich vein of form from the T20Is.
Sri Lanka might make a change or two depending on the fitness of Dilshan Madushanka, who landed awkwardly on his right shoulder in the previous match and walked off the field bowling only six overs.
