19 December 2017

After Sri Lanka's heroics in the 1st ODI against India, it seemed as if Lankans are going to stamp their authority in the series.

Tharanga hit 12 fours and three sixes in his 83-ball 95 and gave Sri Lanka a strong platform and shared a second-wicket stand of 121 with Sadeera Samarawickrama.

India have to make a forced change to their winning combination from Mohali as Kuldeep Yadav replaced ill Washington Sundar in the playing XI. Both of them took three wickets each.

Mathews' return to form must be heartening news for them as is the fact that he is bowling some overs, and with a degree of success too.

Dhawan-Iyer duo have put up a partnership of 135 runs which weighed on the Lankans badly. He scored 17 runs off 28 balls with the help of 2 boundaries.

Smith's partnership of 301 runs for the fifth wicket with Mitchell Marsh proved to be decisive as Australia claimed 259 run first innings lead while Josh Hazlewood claimed a five-fer in the final innings to bowl out the visitors for 218 on the final day to reclaim the Urn following wins in all the three games of the series so far.

WICKET! Angelo Mathews has been bowled by Yuzvendra Chahal, as he departs for 17 runs.

Hardik Pandya took two wickets for 49 runs in 10 overs while Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah managed a wicket each.
