India Cruised 2 a 6 wkt Victory In 1st odi against SRL

hey frnds…m back aftr pak series…well 2day i wz in my collage wen d match started..but i caught up around 12 noon Indian time…Dhoni won d toss n put SRL in 2 bat…we were off 2 a poor start as Dilshan wz run out of d 3rd ball of the match…den it wz a gud partnership by Sanath n Sanga…both added 118 for the 2nd wkt before Sanga got out…off Ojha…Sanath batted wid a lot of caution..he wz picking up one’s n 2s…n it wz gud 2 c the odd boundary also…Sanga showed alot of character as well…The wicket wz quite slow..d ball wz not cumin on 2 d bat…but both of dem adjusted pretty well…Kandamby came in wid a couple of 1’s n 2’s…den Sanath brought up his 28th Odi ton…n 7th Vs India…WHAT A LEGEND SANATH IS…he wz vry tired n exhausted due 2 d hot n humid conditions in Dambulla…But we shud appreciate Sanath’s knock..he is 39 yrs old n still going strong…hope he’l get more n more 100’s in future for Sri Lanka….Aftr Sanath departed..d SRL innings got carried away…Maharoof batted well..but der wz no support…I m vry disappointed wid Mahela Jayawardena…he needs 2 cum at his best…Kapu wz ok…So after 50 overs SRL scored 246 for 7…I think we were 30-40 runs short 2day…

The Indian Chase

We were pretty fortunate we got Sachin early…We all kno he is a class act….Den it wz a gud partnership b\w Gambhir n Raina…But i think wen Kulasakera took a low catch off his own bowling 2 dismiss Gambhir..dat wz out..but wz given not out…but still we managed ..murali gave us a breakthrough…den indians played well in partnerships..n reached d target…Yuvraj is still facing problems against mendis…it wz clear.dat he wz not at all confortable against Mendis…Dhoni played a good captains knock…But i m vry upset frm Mahela’s captaincy..he released all d pressure..wen Yuvraj came in 2 bat…dey were easily taking 1’s n 2’s….dey can b stoppedan xtra fielder shud hav ben der 2 stop d singles…I think Mahela missed a trick der…but dats ok..it happens sumtimes…Credit shud b given 2 Gud indian batting…we din fielded well at all…Dilshan dropped Raina On 7..WE HARDLY SEE DAT…i Wz SURPRISED…!!!!…But India won..congrats 2 dem…

POSITIVES
1..Our top order is luking pretty gud..touch wood…we shud continue batting like dis…Mahela wilo came back 2 his form nxt game..i m damn sure abt it…
2..Never say die attitude___It is always der in our team till d last ball…so its good…

Negatives
1..Fielding__we shud improve our fielding in d nxt match..we shud stop d singles…make d batsman work hard 4 runs..n shud not gift dem singles…
2..Mahela shud show a lot more passion n enthusiasm in His captaincy…

I M DAMN SURE WE WILL CUM BACK AT DEM VRY STRONGLY IN D NXT GAME AT COLOMBO.RPS..ON 31ST JAN….WE WILL WIN DAT GAME…TILL DEN TAKE CARE…CHEERS!!!
