Former India cricketer Virender Sehwag has posted a funny update on his social media account regarding the ongoing second ODI between India and Sri Lanka in Colombo.
Sri Lanka won the toss and decided to bat first in the second one-dayer on Tuesday. The match is a must-win one for the hosts after they went down by seven wickets in the series opener.
Taking to his official Instagram handle, Sehwag posted two comparison pictures of himself. On the left, he is seen keenly following the proceedings on his Apple device.

Sri Lanka were 137 for 4 after 28 overs. The hosts got off to an impressive start with openers Avishka Fernando and Minod Bhanuka adding 77 for the opening wicket. Leggie Yuzvendra Chahal then got India back in the match, taking two wickets in consecutive deliveries.
Chahal first sent Bhanuka back for 36 as the Sri Lankan opener hit one to Manish Pandey at midwicket. On the next ball, the leg-spinner had Bhanuka Rajapaksa caught behind with one that held its line and took a thin edge.
Fernando fell immediately after reaching his half-century, top-edging Bhuvneshwar Kumar to Krunal Pandya at midwicket. Dhananjaya de Silva looked good for his 32 before skying a slower ball from Deepak Chahar to mid-off.
After losing the toss, Team India’s captain Shikhar Dhawan informed that they were going unchanged into the second ODI. Sri Lanka, on the other hand, replaced Isuru Udana with Kasun Rajitha. Udana conceded 27 runs in his two overs in the first match.
