  • 45.1

    Vishwa Fernando to MS Dhoni. Full toss, down leg side on the front foot working, leading edge in the air uncontrolled to deep mid wicket for 1 run, fielded by Kapugedera.

    The game finally ends with Dhoni hitting the winning runs. Rohit Sharma was superb and finished on 124 not out while Dhoni scored 67. Their partnership of 157 was the crucial part of the game for India and they batted brilliantly together. Akila Dananjaya tried his best to spin another web but the Indian batsmen played him a lot better today and picked his mystery deliveries. India have now moved into an unassailable victory in the ODI series with the lead 3-0 with two to play. Join us in Colombo for the next game in this contest and hopefully the crowd will be slightly happier than they were today.
