Toss Sri Lanka chose to bowl v India
Sri Lanka’s new captain Thisara Perera won another important toss in hazy, overcast conditions in Mohali, and asked India to bat again. India captain Rohit Sharma said he would have bowled first as well. Sri Lanka named an unchanged XI from their win in the first ODI.
Rohit said India’s batting mindset “will have to change” in conditions similar to Dharamsala. “It is a sticky wicket. Every game teaches you so many things.” Rohit said. “As I mentioned in the press conference, we are a young bowling group and hopefully the guys learn from the mistakes made.”
