Sri Lanka: Chamara Kapugedara (capt), Dinesh Chandimal, Lahiru Thirimanna, Angelo Mathews, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Chamara Kapugedera, Milinda Siriwardana, Malinda Pushpakumara, Akila Dananjaya, Lakshan Sandakan, Thisara Perera, Wanindu Hasaranga, Lasith Malinga, Dushmantha Chameera, Vishwa Fernando, Upul Tharanga.

India team had same playing XI but with some chances of lineups in the second match.

Apart from Thirimanne and Chandimal, no other batsman applied themselves sensibly and thus were dismissed on sloppy shots.

Once again, it wasn't enough to make a significant dent on the in-form men of Virat Kohli as the visitors romped home to a six-wicket win to take an unassailable 3-0 lead after being set a modest target of 218 by the islanders.

Hardik Pandya's availability for the third ODI remained a question mark as the all-rounder wore a light strap on his left knee, though the team management assured that the player is fully fit and available for Sunday's game.

Kim Wall case: Danish inventor to face murder charge over journalist's death
Madsen, who was charged with involuntary manslaughter and pleaded not guilty, maintained that her death was an accident. He later changed his statement and said he buried her at sea after she accidentally died aboard the submarine.

Expectation: The wicket was somewhat on the slower side for the second game and in this game, the spinners play the different role. A clever strategy by the Indian captain. KL Rahul with the throw after mix up between Sri Lankan batsman, Chandimal was way out of his crease, but Dhoni fumbles to collect the ball.

With Bhuvneshwar sharing the new ball and spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Axar Patel too being consistent, the T20 spirit is overwhelming in India's early build-up towards the 2019 World Cup. Bhuvi at the bowling end. He departs for 13. Dickwella started in familiar fashion hitting quick boundaries.

After all the match appeared getting out of hands, to everyone's surprise, the spectators took the hold of the situation, went bottling the ground, well, it is pretty clear that they're agitated by the team's performance. While Rahul had gifted his wicket to a poor delivery, there was no doubt about the quality of Dananjaya's dismissal of Kedar Jadhav in his very next over.
