India in Sri Lanka ODI Series - 2nd ODI

Sri Lanka v India

Sri Lanka won by 9 wickets (with 181 balls remaining)

1.4

Udana to Sehwag, FOUR, too easy for Sehwag, too wide and a bit too short too, carves it over point and third man had no chance

India 15/0   V Sehwag 9* (7b 1x4)   I Udana 0.4-0-8-0

1.6

Udana to Sehwag, FOUR, ends a nightmare over for Udana, he bowls it straighter but still gives him enough width to punch it past the covers, good timing and placement

India 23/0   V Sehwag 15* (9b 2x4)   I Udana 1-0-16-0

2.3

Malinga to Gambhir, FOUR, great shot, gives him a hint of width and he opens the face and slices it off the meat of the bat past point

India 27/0   G Gambhir 7* (6b 1x4)   SL Malinga 1.3-0-11-0

2.4

Malinga to Gambhir, FOUR, a bit too straight and drifts on the pads, he easily works it away past midwicket and it races away, Malinga struggling too here

India 31/0   G Gambhir 11* (7b 2x4)   SL Malinga 1.4-0-15-0

6.1

Mathews to Gambhir, FOUR, poor start by Angelo, full and a touch too wide and firmly punched wide of mid-off, nice follow through as well

India 37/2   G Gambhir 16* (14b 3x4)   AD Mathews 0.1-0-4-0

9.4

Perera to Dhoni, FOUR, solid drive, that should please India greatly, swings it in and Dhoni shows the full face and punches it past a diving mid-off

India 47/4   MS Dhoni 5* (5b 1x4)   NLTC Perera 3.4-3-6-3

11.3

Perera to Dhoni, FOUR, nice shot, gets forward and across to a full delivery and drives wide of cover, Udana gives the chase and dives in vain at the boundary

India 53/4   MS Dhoni 9* (8b 2x4)   NLTC Perera 4.3-3-11-3

13.3

Perera to Gambhir, FOUR, poor delivery there, too full and wide outside off and slapped off the front foot wide of cover

India 60/4   G Gambhir 25* (36b 4x4)   NLTC Perera 5.3-3-15-3

21.6

Malinga to Ashwin, FOUR, outside edge and it sneaks through! Full outside off and he goes for the drive, the ball hits the turf and travels low and wide of keeper and slip

India 89/6   R Ashwin 8* (8b 1x4)   SL Malinga 7-0-34-1

22.4

Udana to Ashwin, FOUR, take that for timing! Short and angling wide across him, Ashwin stands tall and takes it high on the bat, glides it away wide of point and third man had no chance

India 96/6   R Ashwin 12* (9b 2x4)   I Udana 4.4-0-35-0

23.5

Herath to Ashwin, FOUR, bad fielding! Ashwin took a pace forward and punched it towards short cover, Dilshan could easily have stopped that but it beat him and raced to the rope, the fielder dived in vain

India 105/6   R Ashwin 19* (14b 3x4)   HMRKB Herath 0.5-0-7-0
