India win series amid crowd trouble

In the past few years Dhoni the batsman has been playing a sedate role in the middle order and had had problems finishing games on occasions

Akila Dananjaya's career-best 6-54 was in vain as India beat Sri Lanka by three wickets in their second one-day worldwide to go 2-0 up in the five-match series yesterday.

The frustrated crowd started throwing bottles onto the ground forcing the umpires to stop the play.

Earlier, pacer Jasprit Bumrah came out with a stupendous bowling performance as India restricted the hosts 217-9 in their stipulated quota of 50 overs.

Sri Lanka will be including on their experience and because of this they can delivers a good job.

While Dananjaya delivered the spell of his life, Sri Lanka's remaining bowlers were again largely unable to make breakthroughs. Sri Lanka have won the toss and elected to bat first.

Sri Lanka's regular captain, Upul Tharanga, is unavailable for this game as well as the 4th ODI courtesy a suspension due to slow over-rate in the last match.

Mourinho didn't see the goal, relying instead on the fans' cheers, because he was already planning his next substitution. After we missed a penalty with half an hour to go, normally there is always a little collapse and that didn't happen.

This also means that the reigns of a tumbling Lankan side will now fall in the hands of Chamara Kapugedera. His absence and a shoulder injury to Dhanushka Gunathilaka have paved way for the return of Dinesh Chandimal and Lahiru Thirimanne to the ODI set-up.

Sri Lanka: Chamara Kapugedera (c), Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Lahiru Thirimanne, Kusal Mendis, Dinesh Chandimal, Angelo Mathews, Akila Dhananjay, Milinda Siriwardana, Dushmantha Chameera, Vishwa Fernando, Lasith Malinga.

Indian openers Dhawan and Rohit started the chase perfectly by forging a 109-run partnership. Kohli, Kedar Jadhav and KL Rahul were all dismissed by that ball in the space of five deliveries.

Thirimanne, playing his first global match since June 2016, scored 80 off 105 deliveries including five boundaries and a six.

India lead the 5 match series 2-0. In Dananjaya's next over, Hardik Pandya also came down the track and played for the legbreak, only for the ball to break back towards him, and slip between bat and pad.

16.14 - Rohit Sharma's batting average in ODIs in Sri Lanka before this match. Team India whitewashed the 3-match Test series and now, seems to be planning the same in this series too. For the second time in the series Sri Lanka lost their way in the latter half of their innings: In the first ODI, they had collapsed from 141 for 2 at the end of 25 overs to 216 all out.
