Hobart, Feb 25 : India will take on Sri Lanka in a penultimate league match of the ongoing Commonwealth Bank tri-series cricket tournament here on Tuesday.
It is a crucial encounter for both the teams. A victory will put India into the Best of Three Finals with 16 points. However, Sri Lanka, who have only six points, face the difficult task of winnining Tuesday's fixture as well as their next match against Australia to enter the finals. Australia are already in the Final with 26 points.
Meanwhile, the Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports, Mani SDhankar Aiyer has welcomed the offer of 100 crore rupees help from BCCI for the development of other sports.
He told reporters in New Delhi that the idea is highly appreciative as it comes from a agency which is solely meant for cricket.
Aiyer said that BCCI President Sharad Pawar hadinformed him about the offer.
