India vs Sri Lanka 2nd ODI : Akila Dananjaya stuns visitor with 6 wickets haul
Akila Dananjaya stunned India by taking 6 wickets career-best figures. The off-spinner was introduced to the attack in the 12th over and turned the game upside down, finishing with career-best figures of 6 for 54. Rohit Sharma (lbw) was beaten by a leg-break while Kedar Jadhav (bowled), Virat Kohli (bowled) and KL Rahul (bowled) were all cleaned by by googlies in a sensational 18th over of the innings. It took Mahendra Singh Dhoni (45 not out), Dananjaya’s skipper at Chennai Super Kings, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (53 not out) and their calibrated approach to give the latter more strike to finally ensure India ended on the winnings side, but only after they were given a mighty scare.
