Second ODI: Kuhaldeep hits big, Chahal reaches century



Colombo: India are gearing up for the second ODI against Sri Lanka at the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. India, who won the first ODI, are confident of coming down with the youngsters and sweeping the series. In the second match, Indian spinners Kuldeep Yadav and Yusvendra Chahal were on the cusp of a rare victory. Chahal, who took two wickets in the first ODI, has taken 94 wickets so far. Chahal, who has taken so many wickets in 55 ODIs, needs just six wickets to reach the century. Chahal could have achieved this feat if he had shone with an amazing performance on the spin-assisting Sri Lankan pitch. Chahal will be able to catch up with fast bowler Mohammad Shamim, who has taken 100 wickets in 56 matches. Also Read: Kuldeep has a chance to join Yuvraj Singh and Jaspreet Bumra. Kuldeep needs just one more wicket to catch up with Bumrah, who has taken 108 ODI wickets. He took two wickets in the first match. Kuldeep has a chance to catch up with Yuvraj Singh who took 110 wickets. With one more match left in the series, Kuldeep may be able to overtake both. Wrist spinner Chahal is on the verge of another achievement. If Chahal can take a five-wicket haul against Sri Lanka, he will be able to catch up with Harbhajan Singh. Harbhajan has taken five wickets in three ODIs. Harbhajan’s tally comes from 236 games. Chahal has played only 55 ODIs so far. He has taken four wickets twice.
