After the match, a video of Sri Lankan coach Mickey Arthur has gone viral, in which he is seen arguing with captain Dasun Shanaka on the field. When former Sri Lankan cricketer Russell Arnold questioned him about this, Arthur said that it was actually a good debate, there is no such thing as a fight. Shanaka was given the captaincy even before the series against India. There is a dispute between the Sri Lanka board and the senior players regarding the contract. Due to this many senior players are out of the series.

Dasun Shanaka said – we fought a good fight
After the match was over, Sri Lankan team captain Dasun Shanaka said that we did well throughout the match. But Team India made a great comeback. Especially Deepak Chahar snatched the victory from us. He said that we had a good start in the match. But we lost wickets in the middle overs. We will not give wickets easily in the last match. We have to bat well till the last powerplay. Earlier, Sri Lanka’s team had also lost in T20 and ODI series in England.
Mickey Arthur clarified.
Deepak Chahar scored the first fifty of his career
In the second ODI, Deepak Chahar (69 *) and Bhuvneshwar Kumar (19 *) gave Team India an unbeaten partnership of 84 runs in 14 overs for the 8th wicket. This is the first half-century of his ODI career by Deepak Chahar, playing the fifth ODI. Earlier 12 was his highest score. In IPL, he plays for MS Dhoni’s team CSK. On several occasions, Dhoni sent him to bat above him.
