India clinch the ODI series

India beat Sri Lanka in a high scoring game to win the ODI series.

India have beaten Sri Lanka in a high scoring game in the second ODI to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the 3 match ODI series. Batting first India with the help of centuries from captain Ajay Reddy and Anil Ghariya scored a mammoth 464/6 in their 40 overs. The team got off to a good start but lost a few wickets in the middle before Ajay and Anil got to the middle and put up and undefeated partnership.
