A match that was worth a watch

India and Srilanka were playing more matches in recent past, which keep boring the fans. First two ODI's  were almost onesided affair, But 3rd ODI was real treat for the fans as both side showed their strenght. Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene showed thier class batting and Mathews carried the match till the end. Indians started well after the loss of Sehwag as Gambhir and Kohli steady the innings. But many indian fans would have lost hope after the loss of Kohli.

Suprise was there for them as the Indian Captain MS Dhoni came up the order and holds the innings together. Match turned once again in Srilankan favor as Yorker king Malinga took two wickets in succesion.Batting power play gave only 29 runs and 3 wickets. As the run rate creep over 10, Suresh Raina started his attack and keep  the run rate under control. Once again Malinga was disappointing in the end overs against India. Suresh Rania stayed cool and take india to 2-1 lead in the series. Match went to last over finish where it may gone either way

The real winner of the match were the fans who had the match worth watching. In particular the six hit by Jeevan Mendis of Ashok dinda shows the youngster how to play a short deliver.  Suresh Raina and Irfan Pathan displayed that modern day cricketers not much worried about the run rate above 9.

The next ODI should be a cracker of a match. Kumar Sangakkara injury has open the doors for some new player to fill the place also given advantage for Indians. Indian team always loved Premadasa, Where they have record run chases and looking to wrap up the series. They wont like to put pressure on themeselves by carrying the series to Pallekele. On the other hand Srilanka will be looking to crack indian batting order and have a big hole in batting as Sangakkara injury will really going to hurt them.  Indians will not take Srilanka lightly they know that lankans would spring suprises and come hard at  them.

Looking  for another good match.

Its was another boring match. India had total control over the match (35- 40 Over was bit messy other than that) Easy and clinical Victory. Its better to watch Olympics. lol
