India was 147 for 3 in 23 overs when heavy rain halted play on Friday. After the downpour stopped, the ground staff needed some time to clear the water from the covers.
It was during that time when Shanaka and Dravid were seen talking. It is not known what the two were having a conversation about but the chances of it being about cricketing strategies being the highest.
It could have just been a coincidence that Sri Lanka got back into the game very strongly when the match was resumed. Sri Lankan bowlers for the first time in this Indian series bowled out India for 225. The match was reduced to 47 overs to each.
The target of 227 needed to chase by Sri Lanka by the DLS method. Sri Lanka chased down the target 8 overs to spare in the DLS method. Sri Lanka registers in this ODI series as well as in this tour. Finally, Sri Lanka ended their losing streak in ODI’s to India at Colombo.
