Whatever happens for the first time in one's life is remembered. Something similar happened during the second ODI match played between India and Sri Lanka. Five things happened in this match, which was seen for the first time. From the captain to the coach and from the batsmen to the bowlers, everyone did some things for the first time, which proved to be memorable for them. India won the match by 3 wickets and won the series 2-0.
In fact, in the second ODI against Sri Lanka played at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, Bhuvneshwar Kumar bowled a no-ball for the first time after a long time. Suryakumar Yadav scored the first half-century of his One Day International career. Something similar happened with Deepak Chahar. At the same time, a special achievement was also recorded in the name of captain Shikhar Dhawan, and in the meantime, former Indian team captain and current coach Rahul Dravid also won the series for the first time as a coach.
Talking about this match, the name of Bhuvneshwar Kumar will come first, who bowled a no ball in international cricket for the first time since October 2015. After bowling more than 3 thousand balls, this has happened in the career of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, when his leg went out of the crease.
Playing his second ODI, Suryakumar Yadav scored 50 or more runs for the first time. This is his first half-century in ODI cricket, which has come in victory. In such a situation, Surya will always remember this important half-century inning, because it has happened for the first time.
Cricket is a game of uncertainties. When Krunal Pandya was batting with Deepak Chahar, he was giving low strike to Deepak, but even Krunal did not know that not himself, but Deepak Chahar would win matches and series for the Indian team by scoring a half-century for the first time.
Shikhar Dhawan may not have been able to do anything with the bat in the second ODI, but he has won the ODI series for the first time as a captain. He has done this in his very first series, when he has taken a 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
Coach Dravid's enchantment
Head coach Ravi Shastri is on a tour of England. In such a situation, the responsibility of coaching the Indian team under the captaincy of Shikhar Dhawan was entrusted to Rahul Dravid during the tour of Sri Lanka. He has done wonders by winning his maiden ODI series for the very first time as a coach.
8th number record
Let us tell you, this is the first time in the history of Indian cricket, when the number 8 batsman has played such a big innings and the team has won. Deepak Chahar played an unbeaten innings of 69 against Sri Lanka in a successful run chase, which is the first time in Indian cricket.
