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.

Maiden ODI fifty for Bhuvneshwar Kumar. What a knock this has been, especially overshadowing Dhoni in a run chase. He will remember this for a very long time. A raise of the bat from him and Kohli in the dressing room is all smiles. He cheers and Dhoni walks towards his partner to give a pat on the back. Well played, Bhuvi!

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...
