Sri Lanka opt to bowl against unchanged India

Kusal Perera remained the top scorer for Sri Lanka with his 77 runs knock.

India are already 1-0 up in the three-match rubber, having won the opener at Cuttack by 93 runs. While the Indian youngsters have put their hands up to deliver the goods, the Lankans are going through a bad phase of transition during which they are badly in need of reliable performers.The result has been a lack of contest and one-sided results, prompting many to question the very logic of India playing such a weak side again and again.

With India set to tour South Africa next, Rahul's fine form will be a welcome boost to the team.
