In reply, riding on Shehan Jayasuriya’s unbeaten ton (108 of 120), Sri Lanka managed 269-6 in 42 overs. Mayank Markande bagged two wickets for India and was the pick of the bowlers for the hosts.
Both the teams will be hoping for a full game on Saturday.
The clash will begin at 09:00 AM IST.
Despite the rain pouring at the start of the game, 300 runs were scored in both the innings in first ODI. So, expect another high-scoring encounter as the surface is more of a flat track which will assist batsmen at first place.
