MS Dhoni scored an unbeaten 45 off 68.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Bhuvneshwar Kumar anchored India’s chase as the visitors edged past Sri Lanka by three wickets in the second one-day international on Thursday.

Leg-spinner Akila Dananjaya returned career-best figures of 6-54 to make India stutter at 131-7 while chasing a Duckworth-Lewis revised target of 231 in 47 overs in Pallekele.

Dhoni, who scored 45, then put on an unbeaten 100-run stand with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who made 53, to steer the team home in 44.2 overs and take a 2-0 lead in the five-match series.
