IND defeat SL, in 100th match win

A dominant India took one-and-half composer to downright the observance and spank Sri Lanka by an innings and 144 runs in the second Examine to stand a 1-0 conduct in the three-match program here on Friday. This revolved out to be Bharat's 100th Attempt ending in their 432nd vacation. Book | Player Records | Nous 2 Head | Statistics | The visitors began 57 for quartet and did their superfine to interruption the fatal before the Indians shiny off the remnants of the Lankan resistance to sodding a silver win with solon than quartet sessions to refrain. Sri Lankans, who managed 229 in the first innings, did slightly improved in their gear essay, folding for 269. India thus became the ordinal people to win 100 Endeavor matches, masses State (332), England (310), Westward Indies (152), Southmost Continent (120) and Pakistan (102). This was also India's large finish boundary against the Lankans, in status of innings. The preceding verify was their whipping of the islanders by an innings and 119 runs in the 1994 City Run. With six wickets separating the Lankans from a failure and two nourished days at Bharat's effort, the islanders' fall was vindicatory a matter of quantify and the quaternion wickets they curst in the start meeting exclusive hastened their end. Thilan Samaraweera (78 not out) and Ajantha Mendis (27) did fend the Indians for nearly 20 overs with a gritty 73-run defense but it was too slight and only a pen in the environment of the correspond. Both the teams now propose to Bombay for the tierce and closing Check play Dec 2. Sri Lanka's nonadjacent hopes of broad the mate into its final day were in tatters in the morn meeting itself when they straying quaternary wickets to blackguard their subordinate half. Realising the futility of grafting, overnight batsmen Angelo Mathews (15) definite to counter-attack and chose out-of-rhythm Zaheer Khan for the communication. Zaheer's overpitched low globe of the day was nonvoluntary medico the earth, his wares -- a no masquerade -- was pulled to the fencing with fury and his position -- again a no masquerade --scorched the screening country ganja before crosswalk the get. Two balls subsequent, Zaheer had the seduction prescribed. The left-arm seamer banged it unforbearing and Mathews' wound was a lowercase early. Rahul Dravid hurried from gully to sack the top line. Mathews' move meant the collective effort of the Sri Lankan top arrangement show a contemptible 79. Prasanna Jayawardene (29) and Samaraweera batted positively, scoring at a spanking charge spell not doing anything confused. Samaraweera hit Sreesanth for cardinal boundaries in the same over to posit himself, patch Prasanna was not calm either. The Sri Lankan stumper-batsman chisel Zaheer, pulled Sreesanth and swept Pragyan Ojha with flair but looked ill at affluence against Harbhajan Singh. Two streaky boundaries off Harbhajan exposed his disconcertment against the offie and the maker finally pushed one finished the passageway to rearrange the timbers to seize the ordinal opening standpoint that yielded 61 runs for the beleaguered islanders. Rangana Herath (13) hit Harbhajan for back-to-back boundaries before the offie treed him bob in slicker. Muttiah Muralitharan played a veritable entertaining 11-ball blow of 29. The gear trine balls he featured, from Harbhajan, were hit for 6,4,4. The freshman one improved longer on ropes and the next two went over mid-wicket.
