srilanka vs india

Sri Lankan captain Kumara Sangakara won the toss and decided to bat first. His decision gave him a fruitful result when Sri Lankan opener started thrashing Indian bowlers from the starting of the game. With the help of 1st wicket partnership of above 100 runs Lankans started very well in the final match. Indian bowlers were trying hard for the breakthrough in the game

Finally, it was provided by Ishant Sharma when he sent back Jayawrdene on 39 runs. Dilshan scored 110 runs and the other batsman down the order stringed good partnerships which lead to the score of 299 runs on dambulla which was looking almost impossible for Indian team to chase.

Chasing a target of 300 runs, India again started off their innings very badly and lost early wickets in the game. There was lot of expectations from Sehwag but he departed earlier in the match. Dhoni, Raina and Kohli tried their best to stand on the crease but it was not India’s day as Lankans won the match by 74 runs. Indian team was bowled out at 225 runs in 46.5 overs. Dilshan was declared as man of the match.
