India vs Sri Lanka ODI Series
India defeated Sri Lanka by 33 runs to take a 2-1 lead in the five match ODI series. The day-night match played at the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, saw a battle of wits between the two captains. The Indians started disastrously losing Gambhir and Kohli quickly. Dhoni and Suresh Raina played sensibly and brought stability to the Indian innings. Raina was run out for 54 and Dhoni scored 74. India ended their quota of 50 overs and scored 237/9.
The Lankan batting order collapsed again as Zaheer Khan and Praveen Kumar bowled in tandem to reduce Sri Lanka to 90/6. Mahela Jayawardene played a brilliant knock of 94 and almost snatched victory from India Finally the run chase proved taxing and the lankans were bowled out for 233.
India should try their best to win the fourth ODI on Tuesday to win the series. Let us see what happens...
