The Big Win. Keeps Us Alive!!

India Vs Srilanka,the 11th commonwealth bank series match,a must win with bonus point for India and India did exactly what the situation demanded! an awesome win.A match to remember.



A win with Bonus is what India needed to be alive in the ongoing
Commonwealth Bank series in Australia. The match started off with Indian
captain winning the toss and opting to bowl first. Many would have wondered why
is he fielding first, but somehow he was really lucky today. Sri Lanka really
started off well with once again Mahela and Dilshan gave Sri Lanka a steady
start. But this time Jaddu removed Mahela for 22,a good catch by Sehwag at slip
as the ball was travelling so quickly. Then came in the stylish left hander,
Kumar Sangakkara who has been struggling for his form this series. Both Dilshan
and Sanga batted brilliantly and added 200 runs between them saw both the
batsmen scoring their centuries too. Indians found difficult to remove the both
set batsmen and somehow Praveen got the lucky breakthrough by getting the
wicket of Sanga, he made a very good 105 with a strike rate of 120. Dilshan
remained there till the last ball of the Sri Lankan Innings and saw his team
scored past 300 and he made his career best of 160 not out. In the reply the
Indians indeed needed a very good start and this time that exactly happened
with Sachin and Sehwag showed their urgency in getting runs and in quick time
they added 54 in just 6.2 overs before sehwag lost his wicket to Maharoof.
Sachin continued to play well along with Gautam Gambhir, but Malinga taking the
wicket of his IPL team mate saw India losing its second wicket and India were
86-2 when Kohli Joined Gautam Gambhir, all India wanted to do is chase the
target in 40 or within 40 overs, Kohli and Gauti batted well together and were
adding runs quickly with an healthy run rate. Both were quick with their feet
taking one's and two's and the Boundaries were coming on the right time as
well. Unlucky Gautam Gambhir once again was run out for a well played 63 made
Raina to chip in with some quick runs and he did well what India exactly
wanted, mean while Kohli was looking too good today, the right handed batsman
was too hungry to score a century and he has a great record when it comes to
chasing under pressure, when the runs were coming quick and fast, Kohli got his
century, the highlight of the match was the 35th over when Malinga came in to
bowl,25 runs were scored in that over including four 4's and a six all these
were scored by Kohli. Raina gave him a very good company as well and this
partnership took India home. kohli made sure he stayed till the end and saw
India was not in any kind of a pressure situation and the target was chased
well within the 40 overs, to be more specific the target of 321 was chased in
just 36.4 overs, with this India getting a bonus point, India and Sri Lanka
hold 15 points each and India's fate decider would be played between Sri Lanka
and the Australia on 2nd of March.
