India vs Srilanka Final Cricket Match of Tri Series 2013

India vs Srilanka 

Yet another time! India vs Srilanka. Yes many of the cricket fans are now overdosed with matches between these two teams but let us accept it and enjoy because its a big one. It is the finals of a hard fought tri series in West Indies. Ten Cricket and Ten Sports will telecast this cricket match live in India on TV.

These two teams know a lot about each other as they are playing for a staggering 56th time against each other in last five years. The biggest match these two teams played was the 2011 world cup finals when India defeated Srilanka to life the trophy. India also defeated Srilanka in the semi finals of the recently concluded Champions Trophy. Overall India have had an upper hand agaisnt this team in recent past but they can't write off the potential of Srilanka.

MS Dhoni who didn't play after the first match is likely to return in the finals. Virat Kohli, the acting captain hinted his return and even Dhoni was seen in the practice sessions. So probably he may join the team back as the skipper to add more experience to the team. Someone like Murali Vijay may have to sit out.

India seemed to be already eliminated from the tri series played well in last two matches to beat West Indies and Srilanka with bonus points. Thus India finished on the top of the points tally with 10 points followed by Srilanka and West Indies sharing nine points each. West Indies were eliminated due to lower net run rate than Srilanka.

Bhuvaneshwar Kumar took four wickets giving away just eight runs in the last match against Srilanka. He will be pick of the bowlers for India. He enjoys good support of Umesh Yadav and Ishant Sharma. A lot is expected from the spin duo of Ashwin and Jadeja.

Srilanka have got few batsmen in good form viz. Tharanga, Jayawardene and Sangakkara. Even skipper Mathews have scored some good knocks. He is in good form with the ball too. Eranga and Malinga can trouble the Indian batsmen.

Let us hope we have a rain free full match and clear winners! Lot of cricket updates coming up after this series. The Ashes has already begun between Australia and England. Even India vs Zimbabwe ODI series begins soon! Stay tuned.
