India chase in a nutshell

KL Rahul got some much-needed runs under his belt as his unbeaten 64 helped India beat Sri Lanka by 4 wickets in the second one-dayer in Kolkata. With the victory India took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. Chasing a modest 216, India openers Rohit Sharma (17) and Shubman Gill (21) started off swiftly but then the hosts lost wickets in a flurry, courtesy some tight bowling by the Lankans. Virat Kohli was cleaned up cheaply for 4 while Shreyas Iyer too departed for 28 putting India in spot of bother. However, Rahul along with Hardik Pandya (36) then forged a crucial 75-run partnership to bring India out of the troubled waters and put chase back on track. After Hardik’s departure, in-form Axar Patel (21) cracked a few blows taking India closer to the target. Rahul along with Kuldeep Yadav (10*) eventually took India home in the 44th over. The third ODI will be played on Sunday in Thiruvananthapuram.
