India’s young guns will be looking to seal the three-match series when they take on a struggling Sri Lankan side on 20 July, in the second ODI at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.
Two days ago in the opening match at the same venue, stand-in captain Shikhar Dhawan was delighted after watching the ferocious battings of Prithvi Shaw, Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav from the other end. Chasing a challenging 263, the trio attacked the opposition from ball one to take India past the finishing line with 13.2 overs to spare.
The Sri Lankan bowlers need to raise their standards if they have to swing things back in their favour. The relatively inexperienced group of batters – Chamika Karunaratne, Avishka Fernando, Dasun Shanaka – showed composure last time; they will be looking to carry that momentum forward.
- In their last encounter, Dhawan became the second-fastest (140 innings) India batter to score 6000 ODI runs, after Hashim Amla (123 inns), Virat Kohli (136) and Kane Williamson (139). He was unbeaten on 86, and will be happy to anchor India innings again.
- Kishan made fifties on both ODI and T20I debut. The pocket dynamo of India enjoyed his 23rd birthday with 42-ball 59 less than 48 hours ago, and will continue to bat in a similar fashion.
