Preview: 4th ODI India vs Lanka

With the brilliance of Ravindra Jadeja and Sachin Tendulkar, India went on to win the match and lead the series 21 in Cuttack, now India plans to win the series in the Mecca of Cricket Eden Gardens.

After starting of to a flier by Dilshan and Tharanga supported by Sangakkara the rest of the batsmen collapsed to the spin of Jadeja, Sehwag and Harbhajan. With a small target India achieved this target led by Sachin Tendulkar’s 96 with seven overs to spare. Now all the eyeballs turn to the Eden Gardens.

After about 34 months The coliseum of cricket is hosting a ODI match because of the problem between CAB and BCCI.

Both the team reached Calcutta on Tuesday with the Indian team missing Mr. Kool Captain Dhoni and the Prince- Yuvraj Singh It is a do or die for The Islanders. Mostly The Veteran would return into as Jayasuriya has a high record in this stadium.

The Lankans need some changes in the team and in the batting order. While Dilshan, Tharanga and Sangakkara are in their best, the rest of the players were the cause of loss in the last match.

While the bowling really couldn’t restrict India’s 414, 301 and 242. All the batsmen for India are in prime form. Meanwhile, the spinners are doing well, even Zaheer and Nehra but the third bowler i.e Ishant did very bad last match. And Praveen Kumar’s economy in first two ODIs were around 6 but he was wicket less in both the games . Maybe Sudeep Tyagi will be picked or India will retain Ishant.

Fielding is improving day to day from India’s point of view. Without Yuvraj India will loose experience if early wicket falls. Virat Kohli will take his place in his absense.

It will be important for India too to win the match and go on to win the series. Very Important that Sehwag shuffle his bowlers, bat well and most of it captain the team well.
