Back Angelo Mathews to shine for Sri Lanka

India 1-3 to bounce back from Dharamsala debacle

Angelo Mathews looks a nice price to top-score for Sri Lanka in Mohali

Second ODI
Sky Sports Cricket & Main Event, 6am Wednesday

India's dominant batting unit malfunctioned spectacularly in the first ODI against Sri Lanka, slipping to 29-7 before MS Dhoni's 65 hauled them to 112 all out.

The Lankans chased down that target comfortably enough but India are 1-3 to make amends in the second of the three-match series in Mohali.

Conditions are likely to be very different to the first game in swing-and seam-friendly Dharamsala and Virat Kohli's unbeaten 154 helped India chase 286 to beat New Zealand in Mohali last year.

Kohli is rested for this series while Sri Lanka Test captain Dinesh Chandimal has also been left out but the Lankans can rely on Angelo Mathews for runs in the middle-order.

Mathews was unbeaten on 25 at the end of the first ODI, following scores of 70 and 55 in his last two one-dayers against India, and he also shone through the Delhi smog with 111 in last week's third Test. 

Recommendation
A Mathews top Sri Lanka runscorer
1pt 5-1 Betway
