During second ODI against Sri Lanka at Pallekele an amazing 100-run partnership between MS Dhoni (45 not out) and Bhuvneshwar (53 not out) for the eighth wicket ensured that India beat Sri Lanka by three wickets and went 2-0 up in the five-match series. However, a change in batting order almost hindered India's hunt in the second ODI against Sri Lanka at Pallekele. As the same time the partnership between former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni and pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar delivered the visitors.
Virat Kohli defended his decision to demote himself and said he had no regrets. Kohli added that with the follow going well he was willing to give the other batsmen in the team a chance to bat. From 113 for one in the 17th over, India were reduced to 131 for seven in the 22nd over with mystery spinner Akila Dananjaya taking six wickets in a sensational spell.
