- Charit Aslanka’s bat
Sri Lanka and India met in the second ODI on Tuesday. Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat and made a good start adding 77 runs. However, the Sri Lankan team could not sustain the joy of a good start for long. At one point the host team’s score became three wickets at 124. In such a situation, middle-order batsman Charit Aslanka came on the field and he played a half-century for his team in difficult conditions. Thanks to his innings, Sri Lanka scored a respectable score of 275 runs.
Charit Aslanka made three important partnerships
Charit Aslanka, who came to bat at number five, made three important partnerships. He added 38 runs for the fifth wicket with Dasun Shanaka (16). Aslanka made a short partnership of 22 runs with Vanindu Hasaranga (8) for the sixth wicket. This partnership was broken in the 40th over at a total of 199. Even after this, Aslanka did not lose courage and faced the Indian bowlers firmly. He shared a 50-run partnership with Chamika Karunaratne (44 not out) for the seventh wicket. This pair was broken by Bhuvneshwar in the 48th over by dismissing Aslanka.
Aslanka did this feat for the first time
Aslanka batted in the first ODI as well, but he missed out on scoring a half-century. He became a victim of fast bowler Deepak Chahar by playing an innings of 38 runs. However, when Aslanka got a chance again, she did not spare Team India. The fifty he scored in the second ODI is the first fifty of his one-day international career. He accomplished this feat in the fifth ODI. Aslanka made her international debut in the ODI series against England last month. He was dismissed for zero in the debut match but the team’s faith remained in him.
