Yuvraj wins it for India on his birthday

Sri Lanka batted the same way they did in Nagpur. They went on to score 200+ and Sangakkara scored a fifty. It was good performance from The Lankans point of view. Jayasuriya and Jaysinghe scored thirties. The same bowling performance by Nehra and same fielding. Maybe butter was today too on their hands. But between the crucial overs 1015 the Lankans lost their way. Indians picked up wickets. And the Chief Guest today Amitabhjee as Auro was commentating with Murali Karthik. It once looked that The Lankans wont even touch 200 but the cameo by Angelo Matthews and Kulasekara insured it. The last over proved a lot. Ashish Nehra went for 17 runs. The spinners bowled 11 overs and gave only 92 runs. It was a good bowling by the spinners. But the pace laced performance. Ishant Sharma bowled beauties but couldn’t keep his economy below 10. But the Lankans managed to score 206 off 20 overs.

The Indian batting was amazing today. It was like hitting sixes all the ball. Indian proved they are the best. Especially Yuvraj and Dhoni.
All started off when Sehwag laid the platform. Gambhir started well but unfortunately runned himself out. There was something funny going on in the ground. Indians took all the singles they could and Sri Lanka missed the run out oppourtunities. Their fielding too was like the Indians they dropped catches.
After Gauti got out Sehwag n Dhoni continued a 58 run partnership. Sehwag was timing the ball perfectly. But he mistimed a ball that went to Mid ON. He walked back to the pavilion for 64.
But the match never ended Birthday boy Yuvi and Dhoni kept on going. Sixes and fours were always on. After Dhoni perished, Yuvi still kept on going to get his 50. Raina runned himself out, Karthik came in and scored 4 of the only ball he played. Yuvi hit the winning run of a six over the ground.        GR8 win by INdia to level the series 11.
