A four-wicket haul by Renuka Singh Thakur followed by a record-opening stand between Smriti Mandhana (94 not out) and Shafali Verma (71 not out) helped India women romp to a comprehensive 10-wicket victory against Sri Lanka women here, taking a 2-0 lead in the series.

India won the toss and elected to bowl first and soon got success with Renuka Singh Thakur and other bowlers making early inroads.In only her fourth ODI, Renuka put up a stunning performance, ably assisted by Meghana Singh, to bowl out Sri Lanka for a sub-par total. 

Renuka had picked up three wickets in the first match with the hosts folding for a similar total of 171.Renuka got to work soon enough, dismissing three Sri Lankan wickets under seven overs. Meghana took the all-important scalp of Sri Lanka captain Chamari Athapaththu as the hosts were reduced to 42/4 in the 16th over. 

Meghana also dismissed Nilakshi de Silva crippling Sri Lanka further.Run-outs didn't help either as India's fielding was mostly on point barring a few lapses. Anushka Sanjeewani and Kavisa Dilhari were both run-out and Deepti Sharma cleaned up the tail with the wickets of Inoka Ranaweera and Achini Kulasuriya, according to a report on the ICC website.

A tight bowling performance meant that Sri Lanka were able to hit only 11 fours in their innings as they were bowled out for 173.Sri Lanka's total of 173 would have been even lower if not for Ama Kanchana's gritty resistance. 

Kanchana, who came in at No.7 when Dilhari got out in the 25th over had a tall ask with only 81 runs on the board.She went on defending, concentrating on saving her wicket but kept the scoreboard ticking with timely singles. 

Without taking any undue risks, she hit a couple of boundaries and slowly inched towards her half-century. She shared a stabilising 42-run seventh-wicket stand with de Silva. Unfortunately, she ran out of partners and was left stranded on 47 not out.

A target of 174 was not going to be a challenging one for the visitors but the India openers were quick to chase it down, winning under 26 overs. Smriti Mandhana and Shafali Verma started cautiously but soon abandoned that approach to take on a more aggressive role.

India's fifty came up in the ninth over and from there the duo did not look back. It helped that Sri Lanka were poor in the field and both batters had a couple of chances put down.Soon after her fifty, Mandhana accelerated with Verma playing her shots at the other end as they raced to complete a win without losing a wicket.

Their 174-run stand is the fifth-highest partnership for India in women's ODIs and the highest against Sri Lanka.With this win, India have not only gained an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match ODI series but also got two crucial points taking their total to four in the ICC Women's Championship 2022-25.

Brief scores: Sri Lanak Women 173 all out in 50 overs (Ama Kanchana 47 not out, Nilakshi de Silva 32; Renuka Thakur 4-28, Meghna Singh 2/43, Deepti Sharma 2/30) lost to India Women 174 for no loss in 25.4 overs (Smriti Mandhana 94 not out, Shafali Verma 71 not out) by 10 wickets
