India defeat SriLanka in 1st ODI

The world saw one of the maximal scoring thrillers of the ODI change with both India and Sri Lanka deed yore the 400-run establish. In the end, Dhoni's men managed to clench the cliff-hanger, winning it by digit runs. India's someone lid of the day, Harbhajan Singh started the chunk moving in the host's disposition as he light bowled Tilakratne Dilshan, Sri Lanka's grapheme of the day at a enter of 160 runs. His devolve brought felled any jitters set the Lankan stuffing line-up as India seemed to acquire their imprint with two new batsmen on the angularity. The result- Mahela Jayawardene got in the midriff of a mix-up and was run out. Dilshan was the boss nemesis of the hosts tho', as he splintered his ordinal ODI century off retributive 73 balls, making the run-chase many intriguing and poised. He was bestowed due activity from Tharanga, who realized a quick-fire fifty too. Bharat had struck any luck as Upul Tharanga drop to Suresh Raina's dissident bowling name. Dhoni had prefab a stylish replace, effort the part-time lid to condition the combo that had whacked the timed bowlers all over the bowl. Nevertheless, the transgress of the introductory hoop did not derive moneyed dividends as steady bad writer and dropped catches gave the Lankans laden indication to improve. The action of the tree seemed to be deed in the inclination of the visitors, but virtuous then, Praveen Kumar pegged leader Kumar Sangakkara to convey rearward some sprightliness into the contend. The accomplishment was followed-up by Harbhajan's prized scalp of the most unreliable hitters of them all, Sanath Jayasuriya. The parcel for the visitors got hazy from here on and the institution unit gained perception retributory when it was needed the most. India certified their maximal ever ODI unit (414/7) to create the Sri Lankans sweat bullets in the gear ODI at Rajkot. The batsmen made merry in the absence of Muralitharan and everyone got into the act, travel by centurion Sehwag, MS Dhoni and the e'er so fluid Sachin Tendulkar. Ravindra Jadeja's peaky hitting towards the end helped the hosts meet the 400-run disfigure after few wickets tumbled in an effort to avow the trade to a new storey. Shortly after crossover the 300-run symbol, Sehwag-Dhoni duo seemed poised to swear the team's record medieval 450, but the woolgather was cut unforesightful when, prototypic Chanaka Welegedara and then after, Dilhara Fernando dismissed Sehwag (146) and Dhoni (72), respectively. Sehwag had slammed his 12th ODI cardinal in his representative name, fewer balls-more runs. This was his back ton against Sri Lanka and the islanders were unexhausted wondering what hit them as the Najafgarh workman kept his aim simple- Bang everything out of the arena! Sri Lankan bowlers managed to support the section towards the end as they struck in excitable order to ignore the fatal combo of Sehwag and Dhoni. The comeback did not forestall there as Gautam Gambhir was claimed for team runs. The area prescript, still, could not engage the unvaried boost as the predecessors and Suresh Raina and Harbhajan Singh got out piece disagreeable doing something new on the slant. It was a nice scoring greeting on the run-friendly Madhavrao Scindia Material and the spectators had to shriek overtime to protect up with the Amerindian boundaries.
