Virat Kohli led the reactions as India took an unassailable 2-0 lead against Sri Lanka in their ongoing three-match ODI series. Deepak Chahar slammed an unbeaten knock of 69 runs off 82 balls to help India to a three-wicket win in the second ODI in Colombo on Tuesday. Chahar also took two wickets in eight overs and conceded 53 runs. "Great win by the boys. From a tough situation to pull it off was an amazing effort. Great to watch. Well done DC and Surya. Tremendous knocks under pressure", tweeted Kohli, after India's win.

Earlier, Sri Lanka set India a target of 276 runs with Charith Asalanka registering 65 runs off 68 balls and Avishkha Fernando hitting 50 off 71 deliveries. Meanwhile, Yuzvendra Chahal and Bhuvneshwar Kumar took three wickets each.

India scored 277 for 7 in 49.1 overs. Beside Chahar's swashbuckling display, Suryakumar Yadav also scored a half-century. Meanwhile, Wanindu Hasaranga took three wickets for the hosts.

Former cricketer and commentator Aakash Chopra had a hilarious reaction to India's win. He tweeted, "India B-Eat Sri Lanka 2-0. #SLvIND".

Commentator Harsha Bhogle praised Deepak Chahar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar for their bowling in the second ODI. He tweeted, "Two calm fast bowlers in a run chase! This is absolutely top class batting under pressure from Chahar and Bhuvi".

India wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik had his say on the game. He wrote, "It's never too late to win a match! Knowing the talent we possess, not for a second I felt the game was out of our hands. This is the brand of cricket #TeamIndia plays... Well played boys!"
