Indian cricketers currently in Australia playing Tri-Nation Series are badly beaten by Australia. Having bowled out for paltry 165 runs and not able to complete even 40 overs. Now the visitors are boarding flight after tomorrow's match against Sri Lanka which is only an academic interest. As usual Australia chose to bat and managed a modest total of 252. India who is having such a batting strength faltered so cheaply whereas Warner scored a brilliant 68, Wade contributed 56 and ever reliable D.Hussey made 54. For the visitors the top scorer is Ashwin who made 26. Overall Dhoni's tactics are far from satisfactory.

Both India and Srilanka looked to win the second One Day International match in the Tri-Nation Series. But the luck eluded both the teams. Srilanka scored modest total of 236 in the 50 overs. Dinesh Chandimal who scored a brilliant 81 was run out and their captain Jayawardene contributed 43 runs. For India Vinay Kumar took 3 wickets while Ashwin took two.
In reply, India’s opening batsman Tendulkar got out early by just scoring 15 runs and again the hero was Gambir who made 91. But in the mix up with his captain he was run out. Then it was once again left to Dhoni who scored a valiant 58 not out. But in the middle overs like Lankans the Indians also lost too many wickets. In the last ball of the innings, Dhoni drove the ball to the cover point which everyone thought a certain four. but Nuwan Kulasekara push the ball back in to the play by diving full length thus saving one run and the scores tied at 236.

The one day international match between Australia and Srilanka on yesterday had a nail biting finish. Australia hosted a decent total of 231 runs. In which Captain Clark scored 57 runs in 88 balls. In reply the Srilanka started slowly and also they lost too many early wickets. Dilshun was out after scoring 40 runs and also their ex captain Sankakara was run out as he slipped while taking a run. But the hero for the visitors is definitely Mathews who scored a brilliant 64 and almost took away the match from Austrlians but the luck would have had other thoughts. Being at 181 for 9 the last pair took the match to a last but one ball finish but falling short by 5 runs.
