India restrict Sri Lanka to 217/9 in 50 overs

In the past few years Dhoni the batsman has been playing a sedate role in the middle order and had had problems finishing games on occasions

However, Dhoni and Sharma kept their calm and composure to help India not only get out of troubled waters but also take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series.

Sri Lanka vs India: The third One Day International between India and Sri Lanka is going to take place today. Initially it was a bit hard to read him from the hand but later on when I played him for 10-15 balls I could read his variations.

Whereas Lasith Malinga's poor run seems to have no impact on the team Sri Lanka, on the other side Dushmantha Chameera and Vishwa Fernando also failed to show their required worth, which allowed the Indians to have added advantage. Kusal Mendis had no idea which way the ball was moving.

120/7 - Sri Lanka's score in the last 25 overs of their innings in this match.

Rohit Sharma (54) and Shikhar Dhawan (49) gave India a great start to their chase before Akila Dananjaya tore through the top order.

This is just the latest in a spate of bad luck that has set Sri Lanka back during India's tour.

"If I had come at No 3, I would have still missed that ball because he (Dananjaya) was bowling that well". Virat Kohli & Co will not be looking to repeat the same mistakes they made in the 2nd ODI.

Then, then next day, he generated further controversy with his "both sides" remark during a press conference at Trump Tower. Some other White House officials, including Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, have defended Trump .

Pandya and Patel became Dananjaya's fifth and sixth victims respectively as India were reduced to 131/7. The mini-experiment failed spectacularly, but because of MS Dhoni and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, India managed to scrape through.

Batting at number eight in his first test innings in Galle, Pandya scored 50 off 49 deliveries with five fours and three sixes. The players retreated to the pavilion briefly but returned to complete the match after some spectators were evicted. We didn't capitalise again. "So it's an opportunity for everyone in the team including MS to create good habits and sustain them over a period of time".

Kedar Jadhav (1/12) then got the breakthrough, tapping Mathews LBW in the 35th over. Often he is seen giving his inputs to Kohli about field settings and bowling changes.

Meanwhile, Rising Pune Supergiants owner's brother, Harsh Goenka went berserk along with the fans after India's clinical come back into the game.

However, the complication in the 231-run chase in the second ODI occurred due to a shuffle in the batting order. We don't have any regrets. Here the wicket was a bit more challenging. We'll be more careful next time.

"The off-spin was working, so continuously used the variations".
