Highlights Cricket Score, India vs Sri Lanka 2nd ODI: Men in blue, led by Rohit Sharma looked near perfect before the start of India vs Sri Lanka series but Dharamshala exposed their weakness badly. 

Thisara Perera, in his second match as Sri Lankan captain, is already close to creating history. Under him, Sri Lanka can win its first ODI series in India since 1997 if, they can defeat the Indian team at Mohali today. Men in blue, led by Rohit Sharma looked near perfect before the start of India vs Sri Lanka series but Dharamshala exposed their weakness badly. The top-order struggled against the new ball and Shreyas Iyer at number 3 will have to step up his game to lend some stability to the team. The conditions in Mohali are expected to be same as in Dharamshala, presenting a stern test for the Indian batsmen. The bowlers did reasonably well to defend the low total in the last game but the management would be expecting more from Hardik Pandya who is struggling to fill in as the third fast-bowler. Jasprit Bumrah needs to find an answer to his no-ball problem as it has already cost India on more than one occasion. The management has decided to play an extra all-rounder in Washington Sundar in place of Kuldeep Yadav. Rain is expected in the latter half of the day and can play spoilsport. The live score is 392/4 after 50 overs.

4:50 PM: Washington Sundar to Thirimanne, OUT, bowled him, that’s his first ODI wicket. Flat, full, angling into middle stump, and that’s probably not the best ball to reverse-sweep. Has to try something, though, and he ends up yorking himself
