Match Notes

  • A time for introspection

    Sri Lanka have slipped to a new level of incompetence and India are on the rise. For me, the disturbing signals are from seniors

  • 'It wasn't a 120 wicket' - Dravid

    Rahul Dravid has praised his bowlers for a fine performance in which in dismissing Sri Lanka for a paltry 122 in the second ODI at Mohali

  • Ganguly fails to make it

    The national selectors kept the faith in the team that won the first two one-day internationals against Sri Lanka and overlooked Sourav Ganguly

  • Moody's men face test of character

    Sri Lanka knew that touring India would be tough but not <i>this</i> tough.

  • The Perfect Performance

    As one-sided contests go, the Indian team will find it difficult to outdo this effort against Sri Lanka at Mohali
