Indian Cricket Team had won the toss & elected to bat first. The hosts had a turbulent start as they managed to score 75 runs for the loss of no wickets in the power-play overs. Shubman Gill was looking ominous where he formed a critical partnership of 95 runs with Rohit Sharma.
Shubman Gill smashed his 2nd ODI century where the batter was in complete control of the match. Gill frustrated the bowlers as he rotated the strike on a consistent basis. The Lankan bowlers bowled their hearts out but couldn’t find the perfect line & length which hurt the team.

Kasun Rajitha Rattles Shubman Gill’s Stumps
At the end of 33 overs, India’s score was 224-1 where Shubman Gill’s score was 115 runs in 95 balls whereas Virat Kohli was on 57 runs in 54 balls. Kasun Rajitha came into the attack and was about to bowl the 34th over. On the 4th ball of the overs, Rajitha bowled a good length delivery which was an off cutter where there was no bounce off the pith and Gill went down the track & was foxed where he got bowled. India’s score at that time was 226-2 where Shubman Gill got out on 116 runs in 97 balls where he struck 14 fours and 2 sixes.
Crucial Phase for Sri Lanka
The way the pitch has panned out so far, we can expect a mammoth total around 375 runs. Given the fact that this time, India has got the services of Suryakumar Yadav the fans can expect some fireworks at the back end of the innings as he is slated to bat at No.6 position.
The billion people would be hoping that Virat Kohli smashes yet another century. All eyes would be on Shreyas Iyer, as the right handed batter has had a topsy-turvy ODI Series so far where a 70 runs knock can make a strong case for himself for ODI World Cup 2023.
