India look to seal series

From Dhoni's 100 stumpings in ODI to him surpassing Mohammad Azharuddin's tally of runs. The two had added 140 against Australia in a Test at Chennai in 2013. "I am not the kind of batsman who can hit big sixes", Bhuvi told mediapersons on Thursday.

Such was Mendis' hold over Indian batsmen in that series that reading his mystery ball right became an obsession for the great Indian batsmen.

Niroshan Dickwella will hope for a good start in the third ODI after having contributed 31 and 64 in the last two ODIs.

While Dhoni kept picking singles and twos, Bhuvneshwar was happy playing the second fiddle before unleashing his power and registering his maiden one-day half-century.

"Compared to the Test side, I think our ground fielding has improved significantly over the last three or four years". The match ended with a wide from Fernando.

Earlier, the Rising Pune Supergiants owner's brother, Harsh Goenka has topped the Twitter charts after posting tweets that partly looked like visualizing the former RPS' Captain MS Dhoni.

After going down in the first ODI by nine wickets, Sri Lanka regrouped their strategy in this game and started off on a positive note but some poor shot selection from the in-form and experienced players resulted in their downfall in the middle overs. No politics only cricket.

"We would have been happy had we won the game".

Recent data released by Broadcast Research Audience Council India (BARC) between the period August 12 to 18, revealed that the India-Sri Lanka series has failed to attract ample audience on television. This is the best match for Bhubaneshwar Kumar and it is the first time that he scored 50 runs. Sharma and Dhawan added 109. Kohli, Kedar Jadhav and KL Rahul were all dismissed by that ball in the space of five deliveries. The Indians had no answers of his variations, and ended by taking six wickets for his side. There was an unsuccessful review.

Dananjaya trapped Sharma leg before for 54 and Dhawan (49) swept Milinda Siriwardene towards fine leg where Angelo Mathews lunged to take a stunning catch. What followed was magic and madness. "Then three-four wickets fell quickly and so it was a bit of a panic situation for us". Following their clinical come back and a phenomenal piece of innings, cricket fans on social media went berserk congratulating the duo.

His performances saw him being selected for the 2012 ICC World T20 but there were still eye brows raised as to how a player with only school-level cricket experience could be selected in the national squad. "He attacked the stumps", Kohli said. On the fifth ball he had Rahul, again with a googly.

Jasprit Bumrah accounted for both on his way to figures of 4 for 43 which made him the pick of the India bowlers. Dananjaya was flying and so were Lankan flags.
