India beat Sri Lanka by 141 runs in 2nd ODI

“The first 100 a little longer. the second you are set and seeing the ball nice and hard

Hence, the debate about allowing Sri Lanka an extra five runs would not have found acceptance with Dhoni well within his rights. Among the bowlers, debutant Washington Sundar picked up a wicket in his second over while Yuzvendra Chahal claimed 3.

Rohit's majestic 208 not out off 153 balls powered India to a massive 392/4 after Sri Lanka asked the hosts to bat first on a flat pitch.

He guided India to 392 for 4 in 50 overs.He displayed his dazzling form in the 44th over as he loafted Suranga Lakmal over the fence four times in four legal deliveries. Batting on 199, Rohit scored a couple of runs off the last over bowled by Sri Lankan captain Thisara Perera to reach the landmark in the last over of the innings.

Rohit Sharma also became the first player in world cricket to hit three double centuries in List A cricket.


“I count I analyse and I talk to myself about it when I am batting.”

Result: India won by 141 runs. The openers, Rohit and Dhawan, kept the scorecard ticking over with a diet of singles and twos. As you all know that now he is running the team as a captain and Rohit Sharma became the first batsman to score three double hundreds in One-Day Internationals. Rohit took 115 balls to score the first 100 runs while the next 100 runs came off just 36 balls.

Suchith Pathirana finally broke this stand when he deceived Dhawan with his flight and Lahiru Thirimanne took a sharp catch at short mid-wicket.

After India losing Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer joined his captain Rohit Sharma.Earlier, executing his shots all over the ground, Dhawan completed his half centry from 47 balls as he hit Sri Lanka offbreak bowler Akila Dananjaya for two runs by hiwas on 47 from 45 balls with the help of seven boundaries.

When Rohit Sharma gets on the song, he does play one of the greatest of innings we've ever seen in limited-overs cricket. The yorkers ended up in full tosses and the slower ones were smilingly put away by the batsmen. The third ball, Sharma brought up his double hundred taking two off a push to the mid-wicket area. But everyone will agree that it was Rohit Sharma who was the star of the show.
