Sri Lanka have redeemed themselves with conviction with their performance in the first ODI and are most likely to try their level best to continue in the same strain. While Mohali may not be as cold as Dharamsala, the pacers could still have a say in the second match, considering it is another 11.30 a.m. start to the day-night affair. Half volley outside off, a gentle loosener from Lakmal but Dhawan does not want any sighters. Another win could well change the scene for Sri Lankan cricket, which has been marred by internal feud and payment crisis.
The overcast conditions made it a very straightforward decision for Perera and India captain Rohit Sharma said he too would have done the same. "Toss will definitely decide the match like the previous game (in Dharamsala)", said Perera, whose side bundled out India for 112 in the opener. Will India be able to cope with Lakmal's swing? "We had gone 12 games without a win so it felt good", Perera obviously looked happy after Lanka's only fifth win in 27 games this year. Agrees that it is indeed tempting to bring in Ajinkya Rahane but the team management does not want to change his batting position by bringing him in and playing him in the middle order. "(It's an) opportunity for youngsters to step in". He will make his debut in place of Kuldeep Yadav.
