India v Sri Lanka, 2nd ODI, Ahmedabad India beat Sri Lanka by 6 wickets

After guiding India to a comprehensive six-wicket victory over Sri Lanka in the second One-Day International here, man-of-the-match Ambati Rayudu said he was happy to fulfill the role given to him by the team management.

"When we play for India, whatever role the team gives us, I am happy to fulfill them. I am happy to fulfill the role given to me. It's all about roles of each individual, more than landmarks like 50s and 100s," said Rayudu, who struck his maiden century, a brilliant unbeaten 121, in his 21st ODI last evening at the Sardar Patel Stadium in Motera last evening.

Ajinkya Rahane has been awarded the Man of the Match award for his brilliant century.Ajinkya Rahane and Shikhar Dhawan delivered a staggering mid-innings explosion that yielded 96 runs in eight overs, and for the rest of the match, Sri Lanka were left chasing a runaway engine. India continued to hurtle ahead, hitting 363 for 5 after Rahane and Dhawan had hit hundreds, before Sri Lanka's chase began to run out of steam inside the first 20 overs. Ishant Sharma's 4 for 34 hastened the end, as he made excellent use of the bounce on the Cuttack pitch as well as the seam on offer.
