Earlier, India opted to bowl first and a starring display from Renuka Singh helped them bowl out Sri Lanka for 173 in 50 overs. Renuka took four wickets while Deepti Sharma and Meghna Singh struck twice each. Sri Lanka failed to build partnerships and a couple of run outs in the middle overs further dented their progress. Ama Kanchana finished as their top-scorer with 47 not out.
The Indian women’s cricket team would look for some stability from its top-order as the visitors aim to seal the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka in the second game here on Monday.
After clinching the preceding T20 series 2-1, India have taken a 1-0 lead in the ODI series by winning the low-scoring first match by four wickets. Despite the comfortable win, the Indian think tank would be a little concerned about the opening pair of vice-captain Smriti Mandhana and young Shafali Verma.
Sri Lanka, on the other hand, would hope skipper Chamari Athapaththu can inspire the side with the bat after a relatively poor show so far.
The likes of opener Hasini Perera, Harshitha Samarawickrama and Nilakshi de Silva have batted well but need to stitch partnerships. On the bowling front, left-arm spinner Inoka Ranaweera has shone bright but will need more support from her colleagues.
