Pre & Post Match Preview: India Wins Toss, Elects to Field

Shikhar Dhawan smashed 100 not out off 85 balls. In return, India chased the score successfully in 32.1 overs.

Earlier, Upul Tharanga's attacking half-century proved in vain as Sri Lanka was bowled out for 215 in 44.5 overs. The way Sri Lanka began despite losing a quick wicket in form of Danushka Gunathilaka at the score of 13 might have made Rohit regret the decision at the toss. Both of them took three wickets each. He scored 17 runs off 28 balls with the help of 2 boundaries.

After Rohit won the toss and opted to field fearing the evening dew would make it hard for his spinners to grip the ball, Sri Lanka lost opener Danushka Gunathilaka for 13. Later, Tharanga and Samarawickrama made more than 100 ruuns partnership where Samarawickrama finished his innings by scoring 42 runs.

Tharanga hit 12 fours and three sixes in his 83-ball 95 and gave Sri Lanka a strong platform and shared a second-wicket stand of 121 with Sadeera Samarawickrama.

Putin thanks Trump for help in foiling attack plot
Putin told Trump the information helped lead to the arrest of terrorists that had planned an attack on the city of St. Petersburg as a sign of what Moscow and Washington could do if they cooperate.

Vizag has been a batting paradise but keeping the dew factor in mind, captain Rohit Sharma made a decision to field first.

India lost their captain Rohit early but that did not hurt the hosts much as young Shreyas Iyer has once again showed his skill partnering Dhawan. In the meantime, Iyer scored 65 runs in 63 balls.

Chasing a target of 216, India easily clinched the victory with nearly 18 overs in hand. The double-century maker of the last game was back in the hut and here was an opportunity to put more pressure on the hosts.

By the time Dinesh Karthik came to the crease, India was nearly on the verge of victory, but he kept rotating the crease with Dhawan during his 26-run knock, which came off 31 balls and was laced with 3 boundaries.

But Cristiano Ronaldo equalized early in the second half and Bale netted the victor less than a minute after replacing Karim Benzema.

Sri Lanka, shockingly, lost their last seven wickets for mere 55 runs which eventually led them to 1-2 series defeat.
