Kolkata: The second one-day international (ODI) of a three-match series between India and Sri Lanka is currently underway. The captain of Sri Lanka chose to bat first after winning the toss.
The Sri Lankan batters got off to a good start and scored 51 runs in his first 10 overs.
Axar Patel also did minor damage as the left-arm orthodox took the wicket at a cost of 16 runs in five overs.
Hardik Pandya also saved some runs while fielding. However, Pandya got attention for totally different reason.
The all-rounder was abusing a substitute fielder for bringing him water late in the field during the match and this incident was caught on the stump mic.
The incident happened at the end of the 11th over of the 1st innings, and the camera caught Pandya’s voice. “Paani manga tha last over g***d marwa raha tha udhar,” Pandya was heard yelling.

While it’s not clear at whom Pandya was shouting, fans looked upset at the cricketer’s behavior.
