West Indies Tri-Nation Series - Final

India v Sri Lanka

India won by 1 wicket (with 2 balls remaining)

6.6

Kumar to Tharanga, OUT, this one will carry alright, and the angle has worked for Bhuvi, the last one held its line, this one comes in from short of a length and bounces, Tharanga leans out half forward, is completely cramped by the angle and Dhoni takes the inside edge

WU Tharanga c †Dhoni b Kumar 11 (28m 29b 2x4 0x6) SR: 37.93

Sri Lanka 27/1   DPMD Jayawardene 9* (13b 1x4)   B Kumar 4-2-14-1

13.1

Kumar to Jayawardene, OUT, oh dear, Mahela's just guided this tamely to the lone slip, it was a nothing delivery, a wide one moving away a bit, Mahela could have done a lot with it, he went rather softly at it with an open face, did all those Ishant short balls have anything to do with this?

DPMD Jayawardene c Ashwin b Kumar 22 (57m 28b 2x4 1x6) SR: 78.57

Sri Lanka 49/2   KC Sangakkara 9* (22b 1x4)   B Kumar 6.1-3-22-2

37.5

I Sharma to Thirimanne, OUT, gone this time, walks out, makes some room outside leg, and slogs at a short ball, mid off runs back to his left and takes it

HDRL Thirimanne c Kumar b I Sharma 46 (89m 72b 4x4 0x6) SR: 63.88

Sri Lanka 171/3   KC Sangakkara 71* (98b 6x4 1x6)   I Sharma 5.5-1-38-1

39.1

Ashwin to Sangakkara, OUT, Sanga's gone, big strike, Ashwin stops and bowls a tossed up full delivery, Sanga could not get under it as he tried to loft it, and mid on took a high, tumbling catch

KC Sangakkara c Vinay Kumar b Ashwin 71 (126m 100b 6x4 1x6) SR: 71.00

Sri Lanka 174/4   AD Mathews 2* (6b)   R Ashwin 8.1-0-36-1

39.5

Ashwin to Perera, OUT, Perera has been duped all too easily, he's walked down to a juicily tossed up ball, missed it with all the turn and bounce, and Dhoni's moved across to do the rest, that bounced too much

MDKJ Perera st †Dhoni b Ashwin 2 (1m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 176/5   AD Mathews 2* (6b)   R Ashwin 8.5-0-38-2

42.2

Jadeja to Chandimal, OUT, Sri Lanka are crumbling, Chandimal's swept in the air, he's made good connection, but picked out deep backward square leg to perfection

LD Chandimal c Ashwin b Jadeja 5 (7m 7b 0x4 0x6) SR: 71.42

Sri Lanka 183/6   AD Mathews 4* (14b)   RA Jadeja 4.2-0-18-1

45.2

I Sharma to Mathews, OUT, now Mathews goes, a short ball outside leg stump, Mathews made lots of room, and gave it a heave, ended up slicing it to third man, nothing shot

AD Mathews c Vinay Kumar b I Sharma 10 (31m 24b 0x4 0x6) SR: 41.66

Sri Lanka 193/7   HMRKB Herath 4* (8b)   I Sharma 6.2-1-38-2

46.1

Jadeja to Herath, OUT, Dhoni's missed the stumping on the first attempt, but that has ended up helping him get the wicket, Herath missed a sweep, Dhoni collected but could not break the stumps on the first attempt, Herath was in at that time, but he lost balance and went out, Dhoni was alert enough to spot that and did not miss the second time, an unusually vigorous appeal from him suggests he rather enjoyed that

HMRKB Herath st †Dhoni b Jadeja 5 (18m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Sri Lanka 196/8   RMS Eranga 1* (3b)   RA Jadeja 6.1-0-22-2

46.3

Jadeja to Malinga, OUT, skips out, tries to go big but skies it, Bhuvneshar charges in from long off, extra cover runs across too, but Bhuvneshwar has judged it superbly and avoided the fielder as well

SL Malinga c Kumar b Jadeja 0 (1m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Sri Lanka 196/9   RMS Eranga 1* (3b)   RA Jadeja 6.3-0-22-3

48.5

Jadeja to Lakmal, OUT, that is it, he walks out and misses outside off, Dhoni gathers, Lakmal is so far down he does not even look back, Dhoni waits and removes the bail finally

RAS Lakmal st †Dhoni b Jadeja 1 (8m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Sri Lanka 201/10   RMS Eranga 5* (12b)   RA Jadeja 7.5-1-23-4
