Right then! It would take Sri Lanka some time to sink in with this loss. They put up a real good fight and nearly gave the Indians a run for their money but in the end failed to capitalize on the platform that was set. The pressure now stays firmly on them as another loss would see the series go away from their hands. Can they keep the Men in Blue at bay? Or will Kohli and co. seal the deal in the third ODI? Join us on 27th August, 2017 at 1430 local (0900 GMT) to find out. Until then, it's goodbye and take care. Cheers!
Virat Kohli says that it was an exciting game of cricket which gave them a good test. Informs seeing two 100-run stands in a 237-run chase was quite bizarre but felt good to come through. Mentions that he doesn't regret experimenting with the batting order. Backs it by informing they were sent to slog but got out to good deliveries. Praises Akila Dananjaya for mixing it up well and outfoxing the Indian batsmen.
Upul Tharanga is really disappointed to not have cross the finish line. Rues the fact that they failed to create further in-roads after having an upper hand. Credits Dhoni and Bhuvneshwar Kumar for playing so well and taking their side through. Ends up saying he is really proud of his boys and gives a special credit to his bowlers and fielders and lauds the effort of Siriwardana and Kapugedera for putting up runs on the board.
Man of the Match, Akila Dananjaya says that the variation was working quite well for him and hence he made full use of it. Adds that he had his wedding yesterday and reached the hotel late at night. Ends by saying he is happy to put up a good show but at the same time is disappointed to be on the losing side.
As the saying goes - "It's never over, until it's over" was something we got to witness thereafter. Dhoni and Bhuvneshwar Kumar kept a calm head and countered through the turbulent tides. The latter in particular, was exceptional with his defense and aggression. He registered his maiden ODI fifty and recorded a 100-run stand for the 8th wicket which helped him bail his side out of an embarrassment. True to say that, the experiments failed miserably for India but they will take a leaf out of this extraordinary effort from their No. 9. Stay tuned as Roshan Abeysinghe is out there for presentation...
What a memorable victory for team India to take a 2-0 lead! Something that they will cherish for a very long time. Not many would believe it if you tell them, India started the chase in a stunning manner with Rohit and Dhawan motoring along rapidly. They raised a 109-opening stand in no time and it seemed like this match is heading towards one way. But, a young Akila Dananjaya changed the complexion of the game. He ran through the star-studded batting line-up and claimed a 6-fer in his first game against the Indians. From 109-0 to 131-7 was the collapse that the Indians had. They were literally on the mat to say the least.

A WIDE TO SETTLE IT! What a match this has turned out to be. Short and down the leg side, Dhoni looks to pull but isn't able to do so. Dickwella takes it by moving to his left. INDIA WIN BY 3 WICKETS WITH 16 BALLS TO SPARE. And the customary handshakes follow.

A loud appeal from Milinda to which the umpire shakes his head. Sri Lanka take the review and replays shows it was in line but would have gone on to clip the leg pole. So, the umpire's call stays.
Sri Lanka have taken the review against an LBW decision given not out against Bhuvneshwar Kumar. It seems to be sliding down. Let's see...

Akila starts running in celebration and then appeals ala Philander. The umpire obliges by raising his finger. India have lost the way from 109/0 to 131/7!

He dances down but the flight and googly does him in. Dickwella behind the stumps gathers the ball and has enough time to take the bails off. Hardik can't get back in his crease and now has to walk back dejected. 5 wickets in span of 13 balls from the leggie! He has just turned the game around. Unbelievable stuff, this!

OUT! Timber! Big, big wicket this! Once again it's the wrong 'un which does the trick for Akila. Tossed up fuller around off, spinning in, Kohli looks to flick it across the line but misses it completely and then sees the woodwork being rattled. Kohli has to walk back with a disappointed face. Dananjaya is pumped up and why won't he be? It's his third wicket of the match and that too of the Indian skipper. India are in trouble for the first time in the match. Can Lanka make the most of this?

Vishwa Fernando To Rohit Sharma
FOUR! Another poor line from Fernando. He sprays it onto the pads. Rohit stays in the crease and flicks it square of the wicket on the leg side for a boundary. Gets to his 8000 international runs with that. He has been such an important player for the Men in Blue in recent times.

SIX! Just the flick of the wrists! That's a great pick-up shot from Rohit Sharma. He pounces on the fuller length delivery on middle and leg with an elegant flick over mid-wicket. It travels flat and straight into the stands there. This will get him going!

Lasith Malinga To Rohit Sharma
Beautiful delivery! A perfect outswinger, a touch fuller than a length in the corridor of uncertainty. Sharma feels for it but the ball shaping away beats him. Malinga is unlucky not to get a nick there.
