Dilshan: 40*

After 9 overs: Sri Lanka 64/0

Tharanga and Dilshan batted well and denied India any wicket as they went to the mid-innings break at 64/0. Both the batsmen looked really impressive as they plundered runs at will. Indian bowlers looked pedestrian in these 9 overs. Sri Lanka were all set to clinch this 2nd ODI.

Tharanga: 24*
Dilshan: 28*

After 5 overs: Sri Lanka 24/0

Chasing 139 to win the 2nd ODI, Sri Lankan openers gave their team a very good start. Sri Lanka were 24 after 5 overs with both the openers-Upul Tharanga and Tilakratne Dilshan-looking in great touch.

Tharanga: 12*
Dilshan: 6*

After 33.3 overs: India 138 all out

Gautam Gambhir failed to become the first Indian batsman to carry his bat as he became the last batsman to get out for India. India were finally bowled out for a meagre 138. Gambhir became the highest scorer for India with 65 while Thisara Perera and Angelo Mathews took 3 wickets each to give Sri Lanka a good chance to level the series 1-1.

Brief Score: India 138 all out in 33.3 overs (Gambhir 65, Parera 3/19, Mathews 3/14)

After 30 overs: India 123/8

Gambhir scored a fine half-century to help India gain some kind of respectability in the match. Gambhir needed 71 balls to reach the milestone. Before he reached fifty, India had lost their 8th wicket in Zaheer Khan. India were 123/8 after 30 overs.

Gambhir: 56*
Ojha: 2*

After 25 overs: India 112/7

Ashwin’s horrible sense of running between the wickets cost him his wicket as India lost their 7th wicket in the 24th over of the match. Ashwin played well for his 21. Gambhir, however, was closing in on a fighting fifty. India were 112/7 after 25 overs.

Gambhir: 48*
Zaheer: 0*

After 20 overs: India 79/6

India lost another wicket as Irfan Pathan could not utilise the opportunity and got out for 6. Malinga came back to take the wicket in the 19th over of the match. India were in deep trouble.

Gambhir: 38*
Ashwin: 0*

After 15 overs: India 60/5

Skipper MS Dhoni, along with Gambhir, tried to take Indian innings back on track for a while. But Dhoni (11) ultimately gave a simple catch to wicketkeeper Sangakkara off Mathews. India were deep trouble, losing 5 wickets for just 60 runs. Gambhir, however, stood tall amidst the ruins.

Gambhir: 25*
Pathan: 0*

After 10 overs: India 47/4

Thisara Perera took 3 wickets to leave India reeling at 47/4 after 10 overs.

Centurion of the last match, Virat Kohli was also removed by Thisara Perera for just 1 in the 6th over. Kohli gave a simple catch to wicketkeeper Kumar Sangakkara.

Rohit Sharma’s suffering continued as, in the very next ove, Angelo Mathews bowled him for a duck.

Perera then bowled new man Suresh Raina for a duck. At that point of time India lost 3 wickets for no run on the board.

Gambhir: 18*
Dhoni: 5*

Virender Sehwag was taken in beautifully off his own bowling by Thisara Perera for a run-a-ball 15 in the 4th over of the match. India were 33/1 after 5 overs.
Gambhir: 12*
Kohli: 1*


After 1 over: India 7/0

Sri Lanka included left-arm paceman Isuru Udana in place of injured Kulasekra.

India, on the other hand, went with the same team that played in the first match.

Team India will be confident after registering a win in the first ODI of the five-match series on Saturday while on the other hand the hosts will be eager to level the series.

The Hambantota pitch is similar to the previous match that India won. It is hard, dry and flat. There is a bit more grass on this pitch compared to what we witness in the first ODI. The conditions are good for batting despite the moisture on the track.

The pitches on which india play are dead pitches.Even a child can play on these pitches.If indians have enough guts then they should prove on fast pitches like south african or Australian.You can make records only on dead pitches.
