Sri Lanka wins toss, will bowl in second ODI against India

MOHALI, India (AP) Sri Lanka won the toss on Wednesday and sent India in to bat, attempting to clinch the three-match limited-overs series and achieve a historic milestone.

Sri Lanka, which named an unchanged lineup, won the first match in Dharamsala by seven wickets on Sunday. A win Wednesday would give the visitors their first win in a bilateral series on Indian soil in any format.

India made one change, handing spin all-rounder Washington Sundar his debut. Left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav was left out of the XI.

With plenty of rain in the region over the past few days, a damp wicket was expected to give assistance to the pace bowlers.


India: Rohit Sharma (captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Shreyas Iyer, Dinesh Karthik, Manish Pandey, M.S. Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Jasprit Bumrah, Yuzvendra Chahal

Sri Lanka: Danushka Gunathilaka, Upul Tharanga, Lahiru Thirimanne, Angelo Mathews, Niroshan Dickwella, Asela Gunaratne, Thisara Perera (captain), Sachith Pathirana, Suranga Lakmal, Akila Dananjaya, Nuwan Pradeep.
