Deepak Chahar (69*) smashed a gusty fifty and stitched an unbeaten 84-run stand with Bhuvneshwar Kumar (19*) to take India home after the visitors were reduced to 193/7 in the second ODI. India were down and almost out in their chase but Deepak Chahar made sure India get home in the final over.

“It was hot there, we did well there. Got two wickets. We managed to stop them at 270. It was a decent score [to chase] on this wicket. Only one thing that was going on in my mind: this is the kind of innings I’ve been dreaming of. No better way to win the match for the country. Rahul sir told me to play all the balls,” Deepak Chahar said after the match.

Ind vs SL 2nd ODI: India needed 16 runs to win in the last three overs and the duo ensured the visitors do not lose any wickets and then guided the Shikhar Dhawan-led side to win with five balls to spare. With this victory, India have taken an unassailable 2-0 series lead.

Chasing 276, India got off to flying start but were soon put on the backfoot as opener Prithvi Shaw and Ishan Kishan departed in quick successions to reduce visitors at 39/2. Skipper Shikhar Dhawan and Manish Pandey stitched a 26-run stand but Wanindu Hasaranga trapped the opening batsman in front of the stumps in the 12th over.

India breath on short partnerships as Suryakumar Yadav gave the visitors a glimmer of hope. However, the right-handed batsman departed after scoring his half-century as India got reduced to 160/6.

“I’ve played a few innings with India A and I think he has belief in me. He told me he thinks I’m good enough to be a No. 7. He has belief in me. Hopefully, in the coming matches I don’t have to bat. When we came under 50 is when I believed we can win. Before that, it was ball by ball. I took some risks after,” Deepak Chahar added.

Earlier opting to bat first, Charith Asalanka (65) and Chamika Karunaratne (44*) played fighting knocks as Sri Lanka scored 275/9 in the allotted 50 overs.

Ind vs SL 2nd ODI: Sri Lanka was in a spot of bother at 194/6 before Asalanka’s gutsy fifty and Karunaratne’s late cameo took the hosts over the 250-run mark. For India, Deepak Chahar backed Chahal and Bhuvneshwar as he scalped two wickets.

Sri Lanka began well as they scored 59 in the first 10 overs. Openers Minod Bhanuka (36) and Avishka Fernando (50) got Sri Lanka off to a solid start.

However, twin strikes from Yuzvendra Chahal in the 14th over put the hosts on the backfoot.

Ind vs SL 2nd ODI: Chahal got the wickets of opener Bhanuka and Bhanuka Rajapakasa in back-to-back deliveries to put India in the driver’s seat.

Fernando steadied the innings as the hosts went past the hundred-run mark, but Bhuvneshwar sent him back as soon as the batsman completed his fifty.

Two overs later Deepak Chahar struck for India as Dhananjaya de Silva failed to convert his good start into a big score as Sri Lanka got reduced to 134/4.

Every time Sri Lanka steadied the ship a wicket fell as Chahar and Chahal kept the length tight. Sri Lanka was on 194/6 in the 40th over when Charith Asalanka revived the hosts’ innings.

Ind vs SL 2nd ODI: Asalanka’s fighting fifty kept Sri Lanka ticking the scoreboard as the hosts reached 244 before he got out. In the last two overs, Sri Lanka scored 23 runs to reach 275 despite losing two wickets in the final six balls.

Earlier, some good hitting from Chamika Karunaratne in the end and half-centuries from Charith Asalanka and Avishka Fernando helped Sri Lanka set 276-run target for Shikhar Dhawan’s India. Shikhar Dhawan found no luck with the toss as Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka won the toss and opted to bat first against India with the series at stake.

Ind vs SL 2nd ODI: Yuzvendra Chahal and Bhuvneshwar Kumar picked three wickets apiece but Charith Asalanka (65) and Chamika Karunaratne (44*) played fighting knocks as Sri Lanka scored 275/9 in the allotted 50 overs in the second ODI against India at the R Premadasa Stadium on Tuesday.
