Sri Lanka beat defending champions India by 7 wickets after chasing down a target of 322 runs in 48.4 overs at Kennington, Oval. Sri Lanka didn’t really begin their run-chase well after Dickwella was undone By Bhuvneshwar Kumar for 7 but they soon got the momentum back after Danushka Gunathilaka and Kusal Mendis compiled a partnership of 159 runs for the second wicket. Gunathalika was sent back in the hut after getting run-out but it didn’t really cause much problem for Sri lanka as all other batsmen contributed good amount of runs.

Mendis scored 89 during the course while Kusal Perera was retired hurt for 47 while Angelo Mathews and Asela Gunaratne scored unbeaten 52 and 34 respectively. Here’s what pundits and experts have to say about Sri Lanka’s run-chase.
