India loose the Thriller

It once looked that India are the favorites, me too told that but now it is wrong. Sri Lanka dominated the match. India struggled, were under pressure, injury concern.etc.

All started off when Sangakkara won the toss and choose to bowl. As usual he selected this because of the due factor. But in the third ball of the Indian inning, Gambhir fell for a duck clean bowled by Kulasekara.

They like a row of cycle, wickets started tumbling, Kohli and Yuvraj went to the hut soon, especially Yuvraj went back to a hut with a golden duck.

Mr. Cool Skipper, Dhoni too couldn’t manage to score runs as too fell for 14 in the superb opening spell of Kulasekara.

Now, a sure partnership was needed to keep the hopes alive. Yes, Raina and Jadeja put on a needed partnership of 106 runs. But after the Drinks break in the 34th over, Dilshan struck on the pars of Jadeja.

Even with the departure of Jadeja, Raina went on to score a hundred. But, unfortunately when they to the Powerplay, wickets tumbled and India managed on 245.

The Lankan innings was expected with a high opening partnership but in 1st over Nehra struck Tharanga.

After this, they started scoring fours and also took singles. Wickets fell in their batting. But they went on to score 246 and take the cup back home.

This time, even though the Indian bowling was good, they couldn’t restrict them.
