India vs Sri Lanka 2nd ODI: Squads, timings, where to watch, other details


Buoyed by the form of their top three batsmen, a clinical India will look to take an unassailable 2-0 lead when they face Sri Lanka in the second ODI at the famous Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

The last time the two teams met here in an ODI, Rohit’s world record 264 was eight years ago. Now here at his favorite spot as the Indian captain, Rohit would certainly like to score big. An ODI century has also eluded him for a long time – his last ODI hundred coming against Australia in January 2020, will also be an added motivation. Add young opener Shubman Gill’s brilliant ODI run to the Indian top three and the Indian top-order looks settled and once again looking to dominate the on-foot Sri Lankan attack.

The young pacer is a work in progress and will look to improve with every match. Skipper Dasun Shanaka has been the only ray of hope for Sri Lanka in a one-sided contest in Guwahati. Sri Lanka’s premier all-rounder scored an unbeaten 108 in their 179/7 to give the visitors some hope as they look to continue their fine form.
