India vs Srilanka - Another must win match for India

India vs Srilanka

Well we are about to witness another match which happens to be a do or die encounter for team India. After winning a big match against West Indies at crunch times, India kept their hopes alive for the final berth. And now they have to beat Srilanka and also take care of their net run rate if they have to reach the finals. The match between Srilanka and West Indies was delayed till the reserve day which seem to be going Srilanka's way while this post is being written. Assuming that Srilanka wins probably with a bonus point, takes them through to the finals. India has to beat Srilanka and keep their net run rate better than West Indies to see Srilanka in the finals. Although the permutations and combinations are confusing but this is this tri series has been very interesting. India TV viewers can enjoy the live telecast of this match on Ten Cricket

Srilanka is looking a strong outfit suddenly after their big loss against West Indies in the opening match of the tri series. They defeated India with a big margin and now they looked completely confident against the West Indies. They have to play continuously for three days but they will strive hard to continue the winning ways.

India have no other option but to win against Srilanka and probably face them again in the finals. Virat Kohli led the side from the front as he scored a good ton against West Indies to beat them with a bonus point. Even Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and few other Indian batsmen contributed well. Indian bowling was upto the mark as Umesh Yadav and Bhuvaneshwar provided early breakthroughs followed by few wickets to Ravindra Jadeja.

India have always had an upper hand against Srilanka in the recent past. But this time in absence of Dhoni, the Indian team looks a bit weaker. Even the fielding, bowling and batting has suffered under average performances in this series. Still let us hope for an evenly match contest which will decide the finalists for Celkon Cup Tri Series 2013. It might be another good day for the Indian team where the batsmen come up with big scores and bowler complement them with good line and length.
