Sri Lanka and India are battling it out against each other in the second ODI of the three-match series. India showed their dominance in the first match by securing an easy victory and heading into the second match they had their spirits high. However, something that has intrigued everybody is the Deepak Chahar celebration that he brought in after sending back Sri Lanka’s all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga.
On the first ball of the 40th over, Deepak Chahar started his over smartly by producing some change in the pace and bowling a splendid knuckleball to get Wanindu Hasaranga. Sri Lanka was pushing their limits to take the total past 300 by accelerating the innings. Hasaranga and Asalanka were trying to build a partnership but Chahar made sure that doesn’t happen. His delivery locked Hasaranga into the crease with his footwork as Chahar received his second wicket for the day.
The dismissal was special but what stood out was Chahar’s little celebration post that wicket. The 28-year-old went on to a small dance mode as he came up with a funky move. The slower one helped Chahar to get another success for the day and it was evident from his celebration that the seamer seemed happy about it.
Deepak Chahar fools Hasaranga with a slower one right on the money 🙌

Deepak Chahar started the day on a rough note
Chahar didn’t start the day quite impressively in the second ODI against the Lankans. In his first three overs he conceded as many as 25 runs but made sure that he bounces back in the game. In the middle overs, he first secured the important wicket of Dhananjaya de Silva. The batter tried to make some room and hit it at extra cover but he got early on the shot and had to depart.
Sri Lanka has thus posted the target of 278 onboard for India. Both Prithvi Shaw and Ishan Kishan departed early on leaving India to struggle. However, Shikhar Dhawan, who took the side to triumph in the last game, fell prey to Wanindu Hasaranga who picked his second wicket of the game. With Manish Pandey and Suryakumar, they will have to hold the fort to lead India to a series victory.
