India will look to continue their good form by winning the 2nd ODI against Sri Lanka at Ahmedabad. They have a very strong batting line-up mixture of young players. Needless to say that India will be starting as overwhelming favourites at the Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera, having walloped the opponents by 169 runs in the opening match. The Lankan bowlers allowed the Indian openers – Ajinkya Rahane and Shikhar Dhawan – to put on a double-century (231-run) stand, which also happened to be the third best for the country for the first wicket and was the platform for the tall Indian total. Rahane and Dhawan, having laid a perfect platform for the big total in the first game, are looking good, and with an in-form Virat Kohli and Suresh Raina to follow behind, the home team sports a formidable top-order.
The Sri Lanka batting-order has vast experience in the big three – Tilakaratne Dilshan, Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene – apart from Upul Tharanga, but a few of these batsmen have to fire big in unison to match the Indian batting might. The Lankan batsmen struggled against Axar Patel, but the inexperienced left-arm spinner, included in place of Ravindra Jadeja, can expect a better battle from the likes of veteran batsmen Sangakkara and Jayawardene in the second ODI. It’s in bowling that Lanka appear the weaker side especially without the services of slinger, Lasith Malinga and left-arm spinner Rangana Herath who are not with the touring party.
