India toppled by Srilanka

Srilanka put up a very good show in the Trination series against India the third team being New Zealand. After putting a mammoth total 307 runs for loss of six wickets one would have thought a very difficult task ahead of Indian batting line up. For the home team the veteran Sanath Jayasurya scored a brilliant knock of 98 with thirteen fours and Kandamby followed suit with a swash buckling 91 not out of 73 balls with 11 fours.

The vistors when resuming their run chase found it very uphill task under the flood lights. The opening pair put up only 43 for the 1st wicket but this time Ragul Dravid managed 47 runs where others swayed.

M.S.Dhoni felt the loss may be due to sluggish fielding and opening partnership failing again. he also of the opinion that more young people of high talent may be groomed into the game. After being at Top of the World for just one day team India went to 3rd rank.
