Indian bowlers thrashed Lanka to a loss
It never looked that the depth batting line up of Lanka would get thrashed for 213 by the Indian bowlers. But it happened. The bowlers scripted India the mammoth victory to get through to the Final. With Sehwag, Nehra and Bhajji rested it looked that India lacked spin bowling and explosive opening. But, all the experiments they tried worked out well.
Dinesh Karthik gave the start India needed as fast and explosive as Sehwag and Mishra spun the ball taking 3 wickets.
Zaheer to was in fine form picking up 3 wickets. Even the Indian fielding was fantastic. The Lankan skipper did a blunder by choosing to bat first.
Gambhir and Kohli powered the Indian batting as they scored 71 each to take India to an emphatic win.
