Team India nearly was on point in the last two matches. However, there are some points that a coach like Rahul Dravid would love to point it out to the team. It was sensational how Deepak Chahar took them home in the last match. But, surely they know that it won't happen everyday.

The openers looked solid and attacking at the top. However, there is some issue with quality spin at the start. Shaw has failed twice against spin. Therefore Sri Lanka surely has got a plan for the Mumbaikar. Along with him Dhawan looked great despite some tough time in the last match.

The middle order is a bit weak. Hardik's position is a tricky one. And, he will have to prove himself in the middle order to stay in the team. If he does not bowl that many, India can look for a change in solid Sajnu Samson or Rituraj Gaikwad in the bench.

Now, the bowling lacked some death bowling detailing in the last two games. Though Bhuvi has come back as a wicket-taker in the last match, he looked below par against Karunaratne some times. On the other hand, Deepank Chahar needs to struck early to within the first few overs. Otheriwse, Kuldeep and Chahal were good in the middle overs. Krunal supported them with some economical bowling as well.

Few takeaways for the Indian team from last two ODIs

1. No news of injuries
2. Dhawan has lead well
3. Players have stood up in the crisis moments
4. Manish Pandey looked solid along with Surya Kumar Yadav in the middele order.
5. Dravid and management might look for some changes, specially in the bowling line up or at the top of the order.

Micky Aurther and Dasun Shanaka both were very much proud of how the team played in the second ODI against ODI. Though, they will be very much disappointed for not finishing as the winner. However, they can take few major positives from the last match.

The openers looked good. But, they can be far better. Starts needs to be converted if Sri Lanka wants to cash in in the middle overs. Avishka Fernando is the senior pro of the openers and he needs to score big. Minod Bhanuka might be fighting for a place in the team if he fails again.

In the middle overs, they have found it hard to rotate strikes. Singles needs to prioritize. This will surely take the scoreboard ticking. Meanwhile, they will have to play the spinners better to go beyond India's reach. Captain Dasun Shanaka has looked good but lacked strike rotation in the middle overs.

But, the men who impressed everyone in the series are Karunaratne and Hasaranga. Both the Sri Lankan players have done their best in the Sri Lanka vs India ODI series. Karunaratne's batting at the death has asked many questions to a specialist like Bhuvenshwar Kumar. Meanwhile, Hasaranga has been the pick of the bowlers with his variations and accuracy.

Few takeaways for Sri Lankan team form the first tow ODIs

1. Everyone is getting starts
2. Hasaranga has been brilliant through out the bowling inning
3. Karunratne's batting at the death has been outstanding.
4. Chameera is bowling over 90+ mph consistently.
5. Sandakn needs to attack more with the ball.
6. Asalanka's batting looked solid in the second ODI.
