Jadeja and Sachin guide India to a outstanding victory.

After a decent perfomance with the bat, the Lankans were ready to rule the pitch. But as usually Sehwag and Tendulkar started of with their aggression. Tendulkar hit 2 fours in 5rd over. Viru scored a blistering 44 of just 28 balls which helped India to start of well. But unfortunately,attempting an outside off stump delivery of Welegedara, Sehwag hit it to the safe pair of hands of Dilshan.

The Master started of really well .Departure of Sehwag did not harm India’s good run. Gambhir also gave a good stand to Tendulkar. But was back to the pavilion after he knocked the ball straight to the bowler S.Randiv for 32 of 52 deliveries.

The next batsman in was Yuvraj Singh who started with timing the ball really well. But couldn’t give a proper stand with the Mastero as he was struck by a quick delivery by Welegedara edging it to the Lankan Skipper. On the other hand the Master blaster scored his 73rd ODI fifty and was in a very good touch.

India closing to the target of 240 with Dinesh Karthik and The Master on the crease. Tendulkar needed 13 for his ton and India needing 9 for an outstanding victory. The Mastero was just 4 runs short of his next ODI ton but Karthik leaded India to a emphatic win thrashing the Lions and take a cruise lead of 21.
