Brisbane, Feb 5 (ANI): The second one-day international (ODI) of the Commonwealth Bank series between India and Sri Lanka was called off on Tuesday due to rain with both teams getting two points each.

Earlier in the day, 184-run partnership between Gautam Gambhir and Team India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni helped Indians in scoring 267 after its top-order batting collapsed.

Gambir made unbeaten 102, while Dhoni finished on 88 not out after the pair guided India to an impressive total at the Gabba in Brisbane.

Openers Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag made 68 runs in the first 14 overs.

Lasith Malinga bowled Tendulkar for 35 and Sehwags wicket was taken by Ishara Amerasinghe.

Muttiah Muralitharan took two wickets of Yuvraj Singh and Rohit Sharma.

On Sunday too, the opening ODI between India and Australia was washed out. (ANI)
