2nd ODI, Punjab Cricket Association Stadium, Mohali 13 December, 2018

Toss won by Sri Lanka (decided to bowl)

India beat Sri Lanka by 141 runs

Man of the Match: Rohit Sharma

19:22(IST)

The three match ODI series now stands level at 1-1 with the final game set for Sunday at Visakhapatnam. 

19:21(IST)

That's it. India have beaten Sri Lanka by 141 runs in the second ODI at Mohali. 

19:21(IST)

The Sri Lankan bowler plays a perfect forward defensive push to pick up another run. Off the next delivery Mathews' has bat pad moment and Shreyas appeals hopefully. The camera pans towards Rohit Sharma who has a quick laugh. 

19:20(IST)

Mathews plays the second ball of the over away for a single to long on and Lakmal is on strike. 

19:18(IST)

One more over to go and Mathews is still holding up his end. Shreyas will bowl the final over. 

19:14(IST)

Two more overs left in the innings, will India be able to close it out before the end of the 12 balls? Or will Mathews and Lakmal keep them at bay? 

19:13(IST)

Next ball, same shot but Shikhar Dhawan can't hold on to it as he is coming in. Mathews survives and Washington Sundar misses out on another wicket. 

19:12(IST)

Mathews faces up to Sundar and goes down on one knee before hoicking it over mid wicket for a boundary. He is breaking lose now with less than 15 balls to go. 

19:11(IST)

Lakmal is eyeing the midwicket boundary, twice he has had a go towards that's side but hasn't picked up a boundary. 

19:10(IST)

Washington Sundar bowling his final over of the match. He has gone for a few runs, but has bowled well and would have surely learnt a few things with Dhoni standing behind the wickets. 

19:07(IST)

Century! 100 for Angelo Mathews, he plays it to the leg side and picks up two runs to complete his second ever ODI hundred. But it has come at a cost as he is visibly uncomfortable. Unfortunately it has come in a losing cause. 

19:05(IST)

Bhuvneshwar is back in the attack now as India look to wrap this up. Ravi Shastri will be very impressed by the way his team has fought back after the debacle in Dharamsala. 

19:03(IST)

Chahal's set of overs are done and he finishes with figures of 3/60. There are 4 overs to go and Sri lanka are 230/8 with Mathews batting on 98. 

19:01(IST)

Close appeal for stumping against Mathews by Chahal and MS Dhoni. Simon Fry says Mathews is safe and can continue with his innings. 

18:59(IST)

But, Mathews has other plans as he steps out and smashes it over Chahal's head for a six. Mathews now three runs away from three figures. 

18:59(IST)

Chahal is bowling his final over. He has picked up 3 wickets so far and will surely want to end his spell with another wicket. 

18:57(IST)

Mathews moves to within 9 runs of the much spoken about century. The commentators are convinced about the fact that he is taking it slow and biding his time so that he can achieve the milestone. Sri Lanka have five more overs to play and are 222/8. 

18:54(IST)

6 runs off the Chahal over. India have another 6 overs to get the two wickets while Sri Lanka are doing their best to delay the inevitable. 

18:52(IST)

Both Lakmal and Mathews have been able to rotate the strike in the 44th over. Chahal has conceded the easy singles along with a wide within the first four balls. 

18:51(IST)

Mathews plays Chahal out to deep cover and takes a single to move onto 88. 

18:50(IST)

Yuzvendra Chahal is back in the attack now and bowling to Mathews who is as good as stuck to his crease due to the cramps. 

18:49(IST)

Sri Lanka and Mathews have another 7 overs to play and are 215/8. India need two more wickets to wrap this up and bring the three match series to 1-1 with the decider set for Visakhapatnam.

18:48(IST)

Bumrah is into his 9th over and he is bowling to Mathews who has moved on to 87. Bumrah has two wickets to his name and he and Rohit would surely like another wicket soon just to hasten things up till the end. 

18:45(IST)

Pandya ends the over with a bouncer that has floored Mathews. The bowler enjoyed that even if the batsman is feeling the pain on his hamstring. Pandya has finished his quota of overs and returns with figures of 1/39.

18:42(IST)

Pandya from the other end to a limping Angelo Mathews, but the batsman stepped out and smashed the first ball through mid off for a boundary. He is keen on getting his second century. He has Suranga Lakmal with him at the other end. 

18:39(IST)

WICKET: Jasprit Bumrah has Akila Dananjaya caught at leg slip as he tries to turn the ball away for runs. Dananjaya is dismissed for 11 and India need two more wickets. SL are 207/8

18:36(IST)

Another boundary! Bumrah bowls it short and Dananjaya just guides it through the empty slip cordon to the third man boundary. 

18:35(IST)

Ten overs left here in Mohali and Sri Lanka are 203/7. The third powerplay begins now and India can have 5 fielders outside the 30 yard circle. 

18:35(IST)

Rohit Sharma has brought his fielders in to the circle and is looking to stop the easy singles. Mathews on the other hand is doing all he can to take them to a respectable place even in defeat. 

18:33(IST)

Boundary! A determined Angelo Mathews leg glances Pandya to fine leg for 4 runs. Sri Lanka's 200 is up. SL are 203/7 and Mathews is unbeaten on 81.

PREVIEW IND vs SL, 2nd ODI: Handed an embarrassing defeat in the inaugural ODI, a wounded India would look to get even against an inspired Sri Lanka in a do-or-die second match on Wednesday. The loss not only hurt but was also an eye-opener for a team that has been dominant all throughout the long home season. Proving that the opening day surrender to Sri Lanka pacers at the Eden Gardens was no aberration, the Indian batting stood exposed once again against the moving ball. Chandigarh won't be as cold as Dharamsala but the pacers should come into play considering it is another 11:30 am start to the day-night affair. In that case, it will be another test for the Indian batsmen if the home team happens to bat first in a must-win contest. Barring old war-horse MS Dhoni, the highly-rated batsmen seemed like sitting ducks every time Suranga Lakmal pitched the ball up in the off-stump corridor. After the experienced Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan fell early, it was an ideal opportunity for the likes of Shreyas Iyer, Dinesh Karthik and Manish Pandey to weather the initial storm and make a big score. However, they all came a cropper and if it was not for Dhoni's fighting 65, India could well be out for their lowest ever total. If it was one person, who would be gutted looking at his teams' performance, it would be captain Virat Kohli, who opted out of the series to get married to Bollywood actor Anushka Sharma in Italy. Rohit, leading the side in Kohli's absence, was not amused either in his first ODI as captain. Though, he promised that the team will learn from Dharamsala debacle and bounce back in the remaining two games. "It is important to thrive in these conditions and come out good. It is an eye opener for all of us," Rohit had said after the seven-wicket loss. He is unlikely to tinker with the playing eleven but there is a possibility that Ajinkya Rahane is picked to shore up the inexperienced batting, especially the middle order.
Rahane sat out of the opening game as the team management only sees him as the back-up opener in the presence of Sharma and Dhawan. However, he has batted in the middle-order in a few games out of the 84 ODIs he has played. In the bowling department, the worry for India will be the performance of Hardik Pandya, who again leaked runs as the hosts tried to defend a paltry 112. He is picked as the bowling all-rounder for the South Africa Test series and needs to be at the top of his game ahead of the crucial tour starting next month. Considering Sri Lanka cantered to victory in 20.4 overs, spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav did not come on to bowl. They would be itching to get back into action after a month's gap. While India find themselves in an unusual situation at home, Sri Lanka have a golden opportunity to seal the series after ending a 12-match losing streak with a thumping win in Dharamsala. New Zealand too were on the cusp of history last month but faltered after winning the series opener as India bounced back to win the next two games.
The win must have done a world of good to the islanders' confidence after the beating they have taken at the hands of India at home and away this season. Lakmal was lethal again on a helping pitch while Angelo Mathews too made a promising return with the ball. Also effective on a seaming surface was pacer Nuwan Pradeep. The batting too clicked and completed the modest chase rather comfortably. As put by Rohit after the match, another 70-80 runs and it could have been a different story with the ball still moving in the evening.
