Sri Lanka v India, 2014-15

Wisden's review of the second ODI, Sri Lanka v India, 2014-15

At Ahmedabad, November 6, 2014 (day/night). India won by six wickets. Toss: Sri Lanka.
Rayudu's expertly paced maiden one-day international hundred turned a potentially tricky chase into a stroll. With India continuing to use the series to test players for the World Cup, he was given a go at first drop. He didn't waste it, weathering a probing burst from the seamers, then taking full toll as the ball got older. It was the 15th century by an Indian No. 3 since the start of 2010 - and the first not by Kohli. As at Cuttack, Dhawan had a lucky escape on ten, when the umpire failed to spot his feather to Sangakkara off Lahiru Gamage, playing his second international (as ever in series involving India, there was no DRS). Rahane nearly survived too, when Sangakkara parried a chest high chance, but Jayawardene reacted smartly in the slips, and dived to his left to grasp the catch. Sangakkara had been in better form with the bat, hitting his 87th half-century (the second-most in one-day internationals, after Sachin Tendulkar, with 96) in an innings-retrieving stand of 90 with Mathews. But it was a rare bright spot for Sri Lanka.
Man of the Match: A. T. Rayudu.
