Match Ended   
275/9 (50.0/50)
277/7 (49.1/50)
India beat Sri Lanka by 3 wickets
That concludes the proceedings for this heart-pumping game! India adopted the English approach to chase down the target. They always kept the required rate under control and that played a big role in their victory. With the series gone, Sri Lanka's only aim will be to win the last match and get 10 points for the ICC Men's CWC Super League. Can they cross the line in the third ODI? Do join us on Friday, 23rd July to find out. The first ball will be at 3 pm local (9.30 am GMT) but you can join us in advance for the build-up. Until then, it's goodbye and cheers!
Shikhar Dhawan, the Indian captain, says the wicket felt a lot better than the last one and he thinks that the bowlers did well to restrict Sri Lanka to a gettable total. Admits that they did not start well with the ball and it is a good learning curve for the youngsters that every day is different. States Manish Pandey, Suryakumar Yadav played well and called Krunal's fight with the bat amazing. Praises Deepak Chahar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar and tells that they were brilliant to watch and the way Chahar finished the game was excellent. Mentions the odds were against them but Chahar has been working hard with the bat and it was good he could implement it in the game. Further says that they showed a lot of calmness and were brilliant. Ends by saying the way Lanka planned their innings was really good and their strategy with the ball was also brilliant along with their fielding. States that Sri Lanka worked hard but Dhawan is glad that India won the game.
Dasun Shanaka, the Sri Lankan skipper, says that he is proud of his boys for the way they played and calls it a tough game. Credits the Indian players especially Deepak Chahar, who took the game away from them. Mentions they did not do well in the middle period with the bat and he hopes they can reflect on this in the next game. Regarding his bowling, Shanaka replies that he did not bowl for a long time as there were plenty of options but tried his luck in this match and it worked.
THE MAN OF THE MATCH IS DEEPAK CHAHAR! Says there were a few dropped catches early on and it was also very hot. Mentions that they did nicely to make a comeback and stop them to 275 which was a decent score. States he had just one thing on his mind that he can play a dream innings here for his country and there is no better way to win the game for your side and it was important to stay there till the end. Adds Rahul Dravid has seen him bat and he believes in him and probably that's why he came ahead of Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Also says they have a good batting line-up and he hopes he is not needed in the next games. Informs this is the first time he has won the game with the bat. Ends by saying, when the runs needed came under 50, he took risks and started hitting shots but before that, he was only looking to knock it around. Feels the six that he hit gave him the momentum.
Stay tuned for the presentation...
Earlier in the game, Sri Lanka chose to bat first and started brightly. However, once again they lost the plot in the middle overs and some late flourish from Chamika Karunaratne handed them a fighting total. They almost had the match in the bag but Deepak Chahar's knock spoiled their party. With this win, India also keep their winning streak in ODIs in Sri Lanka intact.
With 83 runs needed in 89 balls and three wickets in hand, it was Sri Lanka's game to lose and they ended up losing. Chahar batted with sensibility and smartness to stitch a partnership with Bhuvneshwar Kumar who also was level-headed in his approach. They played clever cricket to knock the ball around a bit and when the equation came down below 50, Deepak started to play his shots. There were a few lucky boundaries to aid them but that's part and parcel of the game. Sri Lanka will be crestfallen at the moment, they fought very hard and this defeat will be tough to swallow. Still, their energy in the field was incredible and the bowling effort of Wanindu Hasaranga was brilliant.
The presence of Suryakumar Yadav meant that Sri Lanka were not able to exert much pressure and his partnership with Krunal Pandya steadied the chase. The good thing for India was that the required run rate never reached an alarming level. Once Surya was trapped in front by Lakshan Sandakan, Sri Lanka did have an opening but once again the Indian lower order showed fight. Krunal formed a partnership with Deepak Chahar and once the former was dismissed, Chahar took charge.
This match saw plenty of ups and downs as it swung like a pendulum. The Lankan bowlers bowled a buffet of lines and lengths upfront and were all over the place. The chase started with a flurry of boundaries with both Prithvi Shaw and Shikhar Dhawan bagging three apiece in the first two overs. After that period, Sri Lanka struck back through Wanindu Hasaranga and there was a phase where India lost three wickets. Suryakumar Yadav's arrival to the crease, however, never allowed the pressure to build on the visiting team. He stroked a delightful half-century and along with Manish Pandey propelled the chase. Just when it started to appear that India will coast to victory, Manish Pandey got run out in an unfortunate manner at the bowler's end and Hardik Pandya too was dismissed in the same over.
Deepak Chahar has done it for India! What a thrilling victory for them, it went right down to the wire and the tourists showed better nerves to end on the positive side of the result. Suryakumar Yadav is running on the ground in his slippers, he is ecstatic. The Indian players are now also coming out to shake hands with the opposition players. This is now the 9th consecutive ODI bilateral series win for India against Sri Lanka. Thorough dominance.

Dushmantha Chameera To Bhuvneshwar Kumar
FOUR! Kumar gets it away for a boundary and that is probably the stroke that wins India not only the game but the series too. Again, not a good ball with point and third man in the ring. Full and outside off, Kumar carves it over the point fielder for a boundary. 12 from the over and India are on the cusp of victory.

Wanindu Hasaranga To Krunal Pandya OUT!
OUT! TIMBER! There is the wicket Sri Lanka desperately needed. Probably, the last hope for India is walking back now and Hasaranga strikes when his side needed him to. Wastes no time as he makes an impact on the first ball of his third spell. Was wondering why they were holding him back, maybe that is why! This is the perfect delivery, it lands just outside off and spins back in slightly. Pandya plays down the wrong line as maybe he expected the ball to turn a bit extra. It goes past the outside edge and flicks the off pole. India now face a stiff task ahead.
Wanindu Hasaranga is back into the attack. 2/26 in his 5 overs so far.

Lakshan Sandakan To Suryakumar Yadav OUT!
OUT! Yadav is adjudged lbw! Body blow to India. 116 needed more off 138 balls. Sandakan was having a very ordinary evening before this ball but he has hit the jackpot now. A big wicket at this stage for Sri Lanka as Suryakumar Yadav was the last recognized batsman for India. Sandakan serves a flighted ball close to off and gets it to spin back in a bit, SKY tries to defend it close to his front pad. It appears to have come off his bat but the bowler appeals thinking it's pad first. The umpire is also of the same opinion and raises his finger. Yadav takes the DRS and the replays confirm that it's pad first. Time for the Ball Tracker and it's THREE REDS. Sri Lanka are delighted.

IN THE AIR... FALLS SAFELY! Chamika Karunaratne digs in a short ball outside off, Pandya stands back to pull but it takes the top edge. The ball flies towards mid-wicket, Dasun Shanaka runs behind from the ring, puts in a dive but the ball falls away from him. The batsmen take a run as Chamika is unhappy.

Chamika Karunaratne To Suryakumar Yadav
Shout for an lbw, not given! On a length around middle and sliding down, Yadav fails to flick and it goes off his pads to square leg. The bowler appeals and the batsmen cross for a leg bye. The fielder has a shy at the bowler's end but SKY is in despite starting late. Anyway, the ball missed the stumps.

Dasun Shanaka To Hardik Pandya OUT!
OUT! TAKEN! The dropped catch does not cost a lot as Shanaka gets his man! A duck for Pandya and his habit of going at the ball with hard hands sees him getting dismissed. That was never a good idea on this wicket which is holding up a little. Sri Lanka well and truly on top and thanks to their skipper. What an over, comes onto bowl when his team was under pressure and has taken two wickets (one was run out). This is on middle, holds on the surface a shade. Pandya looks to play it with a straight bat towards mid on but does so well ahead of his body. It flies off the inside edge to the left of mid-wicket where the fielder, de Silva, dives and takes a fine catch.

Dasun Shanaka To Suryakumar Yadav OUT!
OUT! RUN OUT! Pandey has to walk back in probably the most unfortunate way! Dasun Shanaka, you beauty! Gets himself on and provides the wicket, not in the fashion he would have thought of doing though. Gets the breakthrough as this stand was taking the game away from them. Shanaka bowls it full and on middle, Yadav strokes it back towards the bowler who gets down, it brushes his fingertips and goes behind and hits the stumps. Pandey is well out and he knows as he starts walking back. The umpire takes it upstairs and the replays show that the ball has touched his hand. Wrong positioning by Pandey there. He was quite chest on as he was taking a start and he had absolutely no chance of making it back from that position. Sri Lanka are back into this one courtesy of some luck.
Run out appeal! Has the bowler got some touch on it? Manish Pandey, at the non-striker's end, has tried his best to plant his bat inside the line but seems to have failed. He stands up and is ready to walk.

Drinks break! It's been a great start with the ball from Sri Lanka. They did get an early scare when India smashed six boundaries in the first two overs but the hosts bounced back very well. After picking three top order wickets, Sri Lanka have the upper hand but they cannot let the advantage slip again. The last two overs went for 20 runs and this is something they have to avoid. For India, it's all about getting partnerships from here on. 191 needed off 216 balls. Kasun Rajitha has returned in the attack for his third spell. 4-0-24-1 are his figures so far.

NOT OUT! The dive and probably the throw saves Yadav! A risky run that, probably not needed right now. On off, this is pushed towards cover.

The umpire initially shakes his head but then takes it upstairs. Replays show that Yadav is well in with his full length dive.

Wanindu Hasaranga To Shikhar Dhawan OUT!
OUT! THREE REDS AND DHAWAN IS A GONER NOW! That looked out, to be honest. The umpire probably felt there was some bat or maybe high. Hasaranga does the trick again for his side and India are now on the back foot. Dhawan was actually struggling. He never looked in despite facing 38 balls and finally falls. This lands on middle and straightens. Dhawan goes back and tries to work it on the leg side but misses. It hits the pads. A huge appeal follows but it's turned down. Hasaranga wants it to be reviewed and his skipper does so and it turns out to be a successful one. The Lankans are having a big celebration!
Time for the DRS! There is a huge shout for an lbw against Shikhar Dhawan but the umpire has turned it down. Wanindu Hasaranga is very sure and convinces his skipper to take the review. Is it too high? Nopes, hitting the wickets, confirms the Ball Tracker. Big blow to India!

Also, there is a bowling change - Lakshan Sandakan is into the attack. A slip in place.

FOUR! Another one that goes through! Once again such efforts just drop the morale when the team is flying high. Short and outside off, this is cut down towards third man off a thick outside edge, Rajitha there fails to stop it.

EDGY FOUR! Almost another one for Sri Lanka! They need the luck to go their way but right now it is not! Length and outside off, Dhawan pushes at it, this goes off the inside edge, closely past the off pole and down to the fine leg fence.

Wanindu Hasaranga To Prithvi Shaw OUT!
OUT! SHAW IS BOWLED! Wanindu Hasaranga strikes and Sri Lanka are delighted to see the back of Prithvi Shaw. It's a flatter delivery, landing around off and skidding straight on after landing. Shaw once again stays leg side of this delivery with the aim to power it over the infield on the off side. But he fails to connect and the stumps behind are rattled. Maybe, Shaw was expecting it to spin but it's a new ball and just went straight on. A smart piece of bowling by Hasaranga, he just mixed his length to get the better of the batsman.

FOUR! Put away! Short and on the body, Dhawan pulls it through square leg. The fielder in the deep runs across, puts in a slide and tries to stop it but touches the ropes in the process. The third umpire confirms it and India end up with three boundaries in this over as well.

FOUR! Raining boundaries again! This is just a push! He just uses the pace of the bowler! Fuller and on off, Dhawan times it brilliantly. This runs away to the long off fence. We were talking about pressure two balls back, well, forget it!

FOUR! Misfield and a boundary! This is very poor from Sri Lanka! They are already behind in the series and they just can't put in such efforts! This is short and on off, Dhawan plays the upper cut. It lands short of the fielder at third man where Kasun Rajitha overruns a bit to his right and the ball bounces past his left side for a boundary.

On the pads, Dhawan flicks but towards mid-wicket. Two dots. Does that build pressure with Shaw at the other end?

That has pinged off the bat, does not find the gap though! Fuller and on off, this is driven crisply but to covers.
Dushmantha Chameera to bowl from the other end. By far, he has been the best bowler for Sri Lanka in the recent past. Can he provide the early breakthrough?

FOUR! Three boundaries in a row and India are off to a flying start again! There is just no margin for error against Shaw. This one is on his pads, he flicks it through mid-wicket. Races away again. Not the start Lanka wanted. 14 from the first over.

WIDE! Not got it right again! Once again this is down the leg side. Wided. Maybe he is looking to shape away from the leg pole, that magic delivery but there is not that much swing.

India are underway courtesy an extra! Good pace by Rajitha! He looks for a yorker but ends up slipping this one down the leg side. The keeper does well to dive to his left and collect it.

On the fuller side, some movement away again, this is pushed back towards the bowler who gets some fingertips on it. The ball races behind as the mid on fielder circles around it. Dhawan looks for a run but Shaw sends him back.

Some swing then for Rajitha to begin with! On a good length and shaping away from off. Shaw guides it to point.
