Sri Lanka has won the fist match for eight wickets when India filed to lead a big score than 146 runs by loosing all wickets just playing 46 overs. To reached the target of 147 runs Sri Lanka has to spend 24.5 overs and 2 wickets. BAW Mendis was crowned the man of the match title strong bowling figure (9-4-21-3-2.33). This is his second man of the match against India in as short time. On the other hand Sri Lankan Captain Jayawardene has secured his 11th fifty against India whenever he was not with 61 runs in the first ODI.
We can not say that the second ODI was totally positive for the India although they got victory by three wickets. I think bowling first was the most positive to level the series. In the Test series and two ODIs where abortive batting is the main caused to get defeat. In this series India has secured some lowest records whereas Sri Lanka hero.
Both team’s eyes are to take lead in the series. Sri Lanka steps ahead to compare the last ODIs winning statistics, including the Asia Cup Series which was held in Pakistan. So enjoy the match.
