3 batsmen who can score the most runs in the second ODI between IND and SL

After Team India’s 67-run victory over Sri Lanka in the first ODI on Tuesday (January 10), the two teams are set to meet again for the second T20I at Eden Gardens in Kolkata on January 12. The highly anticipated match is set to take place on January 12.

Fans witnessed as many as 676 runs being scored in the first One-Day International in Guwahati. Three half-centuries and two centuries were scored.

Additionally, a flurry of runs is anticipated in Kolkata. The batters of both teams will want to make the most of the conditions, which include short boundaries and a great batting surface, in order to gain an advantage in the content.

In light of this, let’s take a look at three batsmen who might score the most runs in the second one-day international between Sri Lanka and India.

#3 Rohit Sharma

The Hitman broke every record when he played Sri Lanka in a One-Day International in Kolkata in November 2014, scoring a historic 264-run knock.

The Indian captain adores batting at Eden Gardens, where he has scored over 1200 runs in competitive cricket. In addition, the Mumbai youth performed admirably upon his return from a thumb injury sustained in the previous ODI.

He impressed the Lankan bowlers with his aggressiveness early on, scoring a solid 67-run 83.
Rohit’s current form and tendency to score runs in Kolkata and against Sri Lanka (1748 runs at an average of 47.5) suggest that he may soon produce another prolific knock.

#2 Dasun Shanaka

Dasun Shanaka has scored 47*, 74*, 33*, 45, 56*, 23, and 108* in seven of his last seven international matches against India. His 108* run knock in the Guwahati ODI was the bright spot for Sri Lanka, even though the first six scores came in T20Is.

Based on these scores, it has been difficult for Team India’s bowlers to catch Shanaka, who enjoys batting against the Men in Blue.

Shanaka, who bats in the lower middle order, has frequently taken the helm for his country and produced a captain’s knock, just like he did in the previous game.
This time around, it will be interesting to see if the hosts are able to stop Shanaka.

#1 Virat Kohli

Star Indian batsman Virat Kohli started his 2023 season with a bag after scoring his 45th ODI century in the first ODI. On his way to a magnificent 87-ball 113, the modern legend was at his peak, scoring 12 boundaries and one six.

Against Sri Lanka, Kohli added yet another chapter to his story of accumulating runs. In fact, in 47 ODI innings against the island nation, he has scored 2333 runs at an average of 61.4. This is the highest score that any current cricket player has ever made against a specific opponent in the 50-over format.

Virat Kohli would love to add to his impressive score against Sri Lanka and help his team win their tenth consecutive ODI series against their Asian rivals.
