IND vs SL: Dilshan Madushanka doubtful for 2nd ODI against India due to dislocated shoulder


Indian Cricket Team would be all set to conclude the 3 Match ODI Series on January 12 (Thursday). The Men in Blue would be bubbling with confidence after a clinical performance. The skipper Rohit Sharma was quite deadly with the bat where he hit a staggering 83 runs in 67 balls where he hit 9 fours and 3 sixes.

Sri Lanka fans would hope the batters show some kind of fight as apart from Pathum Nissanka and skipper Dasun Shanaka the rest of the batters couldn’t make the most of their starts. Management would reconsider sending Avishka Fernando for Kusal Mendis.

Taking care of Sri Lanka

The island nation must play their ‘A’ match against India as this Indian side does not depend on a single individual. There are chances of Maheesh Theekshana being called up for the playing 11 as Dunith Wellalage was quite expensive where he gave away 65 runs in his 8 overs.

It is believed that the field at Eden Garden’s Kolkata would be a batting course. The Lankan batters have to find a way against Siraj as the pacer bowls quite straight and from wicket to wicket. It would be interesting to see Rohit Sharma give Umran Malik the new ball as the pacer was quite brilliant in the 1st ODI.
