New Delhi. India defeated Sri Lanka by 10 wickets in the second ODI on the basis of a record partnership of 174 runs between Smriti Mandhana and Shefali Verma. With this, India took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the 3 ODI series.

Smriti Mandhana scored an unbeaten 94 runs in 83 balls for India. Mandhana hit her 23rd half-century. At the same time, the second opener Shefali Verma also took the news of the Sri Lankan bowlers fiercely. He scored 71 runs in 71 balls with the help of 4 fours and 1 six.

There was a 174-run partnership between Shefali-Smriti, which is the highest partnership from India for any wicket in ODIs against Sri Lanka. At the same time, the Indian team has achieved this victory while chasing the biggest target without losing a wicket in the women’s ODI. Renuka Singh did wonders with the ball before Smriti Mandhana and Shefali Verma. He dismissed 4 Sri Lankan batsmen for 28 runs in 10 overs.

Sri Lanka could not handle Renuka’s ‘four’
Earlier, India won the toss in the second ODI and invited Sri Lanka to bat. Indian bowlers tightened their grip on Sri Lanka in the first few overs. On the fourth ball of the first over, Renuka Singh gave Sri Lanka the first blow by dismissing Hasini Perera for zero. Then Sri Lanka’s account was not even opened. Sri Lanka’s 2 more wickets fell within 11 runs and all three wickets came in Renuka Singh’s account.

The innings of the Sri Lankan team was faltered by the first three blows. However, in the middle, Anushka Sanjeevani and Nilakshi de Silva tried to bring the required Sri Lankan innings back on track. But, both of them also got out after scoring 25 and 32 runs. After this Emma Kanchana definitely took one end. But, that proved to be insufficient. Sri Lanka’s team could score 173 runs in 50 overs. Kanchana remained unbeaten on 47. Renuka Singh took 4, Meghna Singh and Deepti Sharma took 2-2 wickets for India.
