The Sri Lankan cricketers have beaten India by nine wickets in the second one day international in Hambantota, Sri Lanka.

India were bowled out for 138 in 34 overs with Gautam Gambhir top scoring with 65.

The homeside reached their target with more than 30 overs to spare with Upul Tharanga and Tillakaratne Dilshan both scoring half centuries.

It was India's second-biggest defeat by balls remaining in one-day internationals, their worst (209 balls) also coming against Sri Lanka at Dambulla in 2010.

The series is level at 1-all with the third of 5 matches in Colombo on Saturday.
