Man of the match:
Rohit Sharma, for scoring his third ODI double hundred and organising India’s victory.
High scorer within the 2nd ODI:
Rohit Sharma [208* (153); 13×4 and 12×6; strike rate 135.94]
2nd ODI report:
Just like the Dharamsala ODI, this was a one-innings match as properly, that means the aspect batting first, on this case, batted the group bowling first out of the match. And when you’ve got a weak batting line-up like Sri Lanka’s, you stand subsequent to no likelihood of chasing down 393, significantly towards a potent bowling assault like India’s.
Rohit Sharma’s third double hundred in ODI cricket, evidently, gained India the 2nd ODI at even the halfway level. This Mumbai batsman started slowly and Shikhar Dhawan’s aggressive batting and boundary hitting allowed Rohit to play his pure sport and bat the size of the Indian innings. His first 50 runs got here in 65 balls and the balls per 50 saved coming down from then on: Rohit’s second 50 got here in precisely 50 balls; the following 50 (101-150) got here in 18 balls, and the fourth 50 got here in 18 balls as properly. And he hit 11 sixes and three fours within the final 27 balls he confronted, going from 116 off 126 balls to 208 in 153 balls. This demolition job considerably decreased Sri Lanka’s probabilities of successful. As a result of, as aforementioned, their present batting line-up doesn’t have batsmen who can play an extended innings while additionally sustaining a excessive strike-rate. Rohit was at his typical six-hitting finest, as he made nice contact with the knee-high full-tosses that the Sri Lankan seamers generously supplied him and despatched them crusing deep into the stands.
Thisara Perera gained his second consecutive toss and selected to bowl first once more, in all probability anticipating the dampness and small blade of grass on the Mohali pitch to help Suranga Lakmal, Angelo Mathews and Nuwan Pradeep just like the pitch in Dharamsala did. However not solely was this pitch on the slower aspect, however the ball hardly moved within the air or off the pitch and the Indian openers, specifically, felt at dwelling towards the identical bowling assault which had troubled them solely a few mornings in the past.
Dhawan and Rohit Sharma too, to an extent, didn’t thoughts charging the Sri Lankan bowlers and thereby nullifying the potential for the ball to maneuver and catch the perimeters or wrap their pads. Additionally, the Lankan seamers weren’t in line with their traces and lengths, which they wanted to be to maintain the Indian batsmen on a decent leash and choose wickets by drying up the runs. The Indian batsmen had wised up and the circumstances weren’t as testing as in Dharamsala. So, as a bowler, you needed to strike the appropriate steadiness between bowling for wickets and bowling to maintain the runs down.
In Dharamsala, the Sri Lankan bowlers managed to string maiden over after maiden over they usually had been choosing wickets in clusters too; right here, nonetheless, they managed neither and although India had been off to a fairly sedate begin, Dhawan and Rohit constructed a stable basis from the place posting a 300-plus whole was potential.
Dhawan performed an pointless, reckless shot to be caught at brief mid-wicket off left-arm spinner Sachith Pathirana, after scoring 68 off 67 balls and having shared a 115-run stand with Rohit for the primary wicket. Shreyas Iyer, enjoying solely his second One-Day Worldwide, batted comfortably towards tempo and spin bowling alike and extra importantly, exhibited his big selection of strokes, which basically allowed him to attain at greater than run a ball with out breaking a sweat. Iyer was not solely offered the platform by the twelfth 100+ opening partnership between Rohit and Dhawan, to make an impression, however he additionally had a innocent, easy-paced pitch to attain runs at a brisk tempo. And he did utilise this chance to make an 80+ rating (a 70-ball 88, exactly) and being dismissed solely after he had shared a 213-run stand for the second wicket with Rohit and India had been aiming for a rating in extra of 350.
Rohit made his 16th ODI century on what was his second wedding ceremony anniversary and in entrance of his spouse Ritika, whereas that is now the seventh particular person double hundred to be scored in ODI cricket. Sri Lanka’s bowlers had been punished for bowling poorly and besides Akila Dananjaya (of the bowlers who bowled greater than 5 overs), all of them conceded at seven runs or extra per over, with Nuwan Pradeep the most costly (zero/106 in 10 overs). Angelo Mathews, like in Dharamsala, took the brand new ball and bowled a frugal four-over spell, conceding simply 9 runs.
Sri Lanka by no means actually batted like they had been chasing 393. They not solely obtained off to a gradual begin (scoring at lower than 4 runs per over 4 a majority of the primary powerplay, but in addition misplaced the three key wickets of Danushka Gunathilaka (16 off 19 balls), Upul Tharanga (7 off 14 balls) and Lahiru Thirimanne (21 off 35 balls) with simply 62 runs on the scoreboard. Truthful to say majority of the Sri Lankan batsmen felt the slowness of this pitch greater than their Indian counterparts and struggled for timing.
Angelo Mathews, although, held one find yourself and with out taking massive dangers, scored at a strike fee of near 90. His means to seek out the boundary every so often helped his strike fee, whereas he additionally appeared that Sri Lanka had accepted defeat and solely wished to make sure they didn’t lose by an enormous, embarrassing margin. Nonetheless, he made his second ODI century, reaching the landmark in 122 balls, and ending on 111* off 132 balls (9×four and three×6).
The Indian bowling assault collectively fared properly, although it was unable to bowl Sri Lanka out regardless of moving into the tail as early because the 31st over. Washington Sundar, at simply 18 years and 69 days outdated, turned the seventh-youngest to play an ODI for India.
