Sri Lanka vs India: Chahar's magnificent knock propels the visitors to a dramatic victory Scores:

Sri Lanka

275/9 (50.0)vs

India

277/7 (49.1)

Before walking out and playing a courageous knock of 69 not out in India's 3-wicket triumph in Colombo on Tuesday, Deepak Chahar stated he was informed by Rahul Dravid that he was good enough to bat at No. 7.

Sri Lanka produced a challenging 275 for 9 in 50 overs after winning the toss and batting first. India responded by reaching 277 for 7 with five deliveries remaining.

During their pursuit, India lost seven wickets for 193 runs and appeared to be on the verge of losing, but Chahar combined with Bhuvneshwar Kumar (19 not out) for an unbroken 84-run eighth-wicket partnership to seal victory.

Deepak Chahar kept his cool despite Sri Lanka sliding in a few tight overs following the loss of Krunal Pandya, which many felt was the end of India's prospects in the second ODI. During the early stages of his partnership with Bhuvneshwar, Chahar kept the scoreboard going and then accelerated after the 43rd over. Deepak Chahar struck seven boundaries and a six as India won their ODI series against Sri Lanka for the 10th time.

Chahar had previously been awarded player of the match after taking two wickets for 53 runs in eight overs in Sri Lanka's innings. Kumar bowled 10 overs and collected 3-54.
