Lanka Lanka all the way…!!!
From the word go it was a huge task for the Indians.
Sehwag gave a very good start to the Indian run chase. As a perished Gambhir continued and kept the asking rate below 10. He scored a fifty in less that 20 balls and then got out in a cheeky manner.
From there on it was Sri Lanka all the way. Wickets kept tumbling, bowlers took their wickets. The pick of the bowlers was Jayasuriya taking 2 wickets and giving away only 19 runs.
India lost their way and the middle order did not perform. There was a cameo from Nehra and Dinda of 26 and 19 runs,
At last the Lankans won by 29 runs.
The man of the match obviously goes to Sangakkara for his blistering innings.
It was a poor performance from India’s point of view- Bowling lacked quality spin, pace was poor, fumbles, drop catches, mis fields, poor show from the middle order.etc.etc
Lets hope India do better in the next match on 12th and correct all their errors.
ITS ADITHYA R
