India vs Sri Lanka 2017: 5 factors which could determine the 3rd ODI
Shikhar Dhawan played exceptionally well in Wednesday's innings, scoring 68 in 67 balls (c Thirimanne b Sachith Pathirana), while Shreyas Iyer too contributed 88 runs off 70 balls (c (sub) C de Silva b Thisara Perera).
His breathtaking knock included a dozen sixes and 13 boundaries as he literally toyed with the opposition bowlers. This turned out to be Rohit's third double hundred in ODI cricket (four others have one each) and he became only the second captain to crack a double ton in the 50-over format. Indian skipper Rohit Sharma was on fire as he slammed his 3rd double hundred in the match helping his team reach such a massive score. Trailing 1-0 in the series, India were put to bat by Sri Lanka.
After 37 years, Voyager 1 has fired up its trajectory thrusters
Now, nearly four decades later, they've come back to life without a hitch to take over for the failing attitude control thrusters. Voyager 1 is 13 billion miles from home and is the first man-made object to leave the solar system and enter interstellar space .
The first such instance of penalising the fielding team occurred this September just days after the law came into effect when Marnus Labuschagne of Queensland was found guilty of teasing the Cricket Australia XI batsman Param Uppal.
Sri Lanka, whose captain Thisara Perera won the toss and opted to field, had been hoping for a repeat of the series opener in Dharamsala on Sunday, when India were bundled out for 112 in a seven-wicket defeat. He would have had his heart in his mouth when a better throw from long off could have resulted in his run out on 197. The openers, Rohit and Dhawan, kept the scorecard ticking over with a diet of singles and twos. Rohit took 115 balls to score the first 100 runs while the next 100 runs came off just 36 balls. In this match India had scored 383 runs losing 6 wickets. There was more in store, but this time for Nuwan Pradeep.
After being surprisingly inserted into bat, India began rather sedately.
In reply, Sri Lanka's innings never took off and despite Angelo Mathews' fighting hundred, the visitors only managed 251/8 from their 50 overs and lost the match by 141 runs. In 2014, in Eden Gardens, Rohit, after being dropped on four, thrashed the Sri Lankan bowlers to all corners and made a sensational 173-ball 264 - the highest ever individual score in ODIs.
