During the first One-Day International between India and Sri Lanka in Colombo on Sunday, pundits debated the two sides' head-to-head record. It goes without saying that India has a far better record versus Sri Lanka, dominating the match 92-56 after winning the opening match.
However, there was a moment in the mid-to-late 1990s when Sri Lanka was the world's ODI champions and nearly unstoppable in the game. Sanath Jayasuriya, Aravinda de Silva, Muttiah, and Chaminda Vaas had transformed them into a world-beater, and India suffered the consequences throughout that period.
Murali Kartik, who referred to India's career record against all the Lankans, reminded commentator Roshan Abeysinghe of those golden days in commentary.
On Tuesday, India, headed by Shikhar Dhawan, now have the opportunity to close off the match and extend a run of dominance that hasn't been witnessed in the competition before.
With a win in the 2nd ODI, India would have won nine straight international ODI series versus Sri Lanka, tying for the most in the 50-over format.
