Jayasuriya closes out tense win
Sri Lanka 208-7 beat India 205-9 by three wickets

Sanath Jayasuriya shrugged off a shoulder dislocation (In Picture) to lead Sri Lanka to a tense victory over India in the first match of the Indian Oil Cup. Muttiah Muralitharan and debutant Dilhara Lokuhettige both bowled well to to restrict India to 205-9 in Dambulla. But Jayasuriya, who popped his shoulder in the field and batted down at number six, had to hold the tail together after Sri Lanka slipped to 112-5. His unbeaten 38 off 47 balls saw Sri Lanka home with 10 balls to spare. India won the toss and opted to bat in the curtain-raiser of the triangular series, which also features a weakened West Indies. But without Sourav Ganguly or Sachin Tendulkar available, India were not at full strength either and they struggled with only Rahul Dravid (54) the only batsman in the top six to play any sort of innings. Muralitharan took 3-33 while opening bowler Lokuhettige had 2-31.

India cruise to win over Windies
India 180-4 (36 overs) bt West Indies 178 all out (47.4 overs) by six wickets

India coasted to a six-wicket victory in their tri-nations one-dayer against a West Indies side missing the majority of their first-team players. West Indies were reduced to 178 all out, a total India reached with 14 overs to spare. Rahul Dravid (In Picture) was the pick of the Indian batsmen with a half-century. West Indies captain Shivnarine Chanderpaul won the toss and elected to bat against the same India line-up that lost Saturday's opener against Sri Lanka by three wickets. His side gave new caps to both Narsingh Deonarine and Denesh Ramdin, who rewarded that faith with knocks of 41 and 24 respectively. After a slight rain delay, though, their team-mates at the top of the order struggled - the Windies crumbing to 32-3 after 13 overs before settling courtesy of Deonarine and Chanderpaul.
India, though, rarely looked in danger of failing to reach the target even when Sehwag was trapped lbw by Jermaine Lawson with just three runs on the board. Mohammad Kaif was then joined at the crease by Raina, and the pair put on a run-a-ball partnership of 65 before Kaif was caught by Joseph off Best. Raina followed moments later off the bowling of Dwayne Smith before Dravid and Yuvraj Singh virtually assured the win. Although Yuvraj lost his wicket late on, Dravid remained at the crease to steer India to victory.

Mahroof rips through Windies to clinch victory
Sri Lanka 241-6 bt West Indies 191 by 50 runs

Seam bowler Fervez Mahroof (In Picture) ripped through the West Indies top order to clinch Sri Lanka a 50-run victory on Tuesday in a limited-over tri-series. Mahroof snared three wickets for nine runs in an accurate 10-over spell as Windies were dismissed for 191 in 45.1 overs chasing Sri Lankas challenging score of 241 for six from 50. Half-centuries by Kumar Sangakkara and skipper Marvan Atapattu boosted Sri Lanka to the highest total in the current tri-series. Left-hander Sangakkara smashed 79 and opening batsman Atapattu scored 70 to share an innings-building partnership of 138 from 207 deliveries for the second wicket against a weak Windies attack. The victory, Sri Lankas second after defeating India by three wickets in the tri-series opener Saturday game the home team one foot in the final. The tri-series comprises a double-leg preliminary round, followed by a title encounter between the top sides on Aug 9. No. 7 batsman Dwayne Smith provided respectability to the Windies total through an aggressive 68, his highest score in 28 one-dayers that included two sixes and nine boundaries off 90 deliveries. Middle-order batsmen Denesh Ramdin (29) and Narsingh Deonarine (23) also made useful contributions. The Windies have been forced to field a second-string squad due to a contract dispute between the West Indies board and the players body.

Lanka clinch dramatic win over India
Sri Lanka 221-6 bt India 220-8 by four wickets

Mahela Jayawardene rediscovered his batting form at the right time as Sri Lanka staged a dramatic recovery to stun India and romp into the finals of the Indian Oil Cup cricket triseries. Chasing a target of 221, the hosts were precariously placed at 95 for six before Jayawardene swung the game in his team's favour with a controlled 94 not out to help Sri Lanka record a four-wicket win at the Rangiri stadium. The Indians had themselves to blame for the debacle as the lack of a quality fifth bowler allowed the hosts to wriggle out of a tight situation through an record unbroken 126-run partnership between Jawardene and Upul Chandana (45).
Ganguly (In Picture) made it a memorable return to international cricket with a well paced 51 that also saw him cross the 10,000-run mark in One-Day Internationals. The result ensured Sri Lanka's berth in the final on Tuesday and left the Indians needing to beat the West Indies in their last league match to reach the summit clash.

West Indies revel in first win
West Indies (226-7) beat Sri Lanka (193 all out) by 33 runs

West Indies recorded their first win in the triangular series with a 33-run victory over Sri Lanka in Colombo. They notched up 226-7 in their innings and skittled the hosts for 193 to give themselves a chance of qualifying for Tuesday's final.
Sylvester Joseph (In Picture) top-scored with 58 before being run out and Shivnarine Chanderpaul added 57. Deonarine took 2-18 off four overs while seamer Dwayne Smith and spinner Omari Banks shared four crucial wickets. Smith grabbed two wickets off successive balls and Banks took two scalps in three overs Sri Lanka, who had already qualified for the final, fielded well, with three run-outs, while Upul Chandana took 2-49 in his 10 overs.
West Indies must now beat India in the final qualifying game on Sunday. It brought to an end an 11-match winless run after the West Indies were decimated by the loss of 10 first-team players because of a sponsorship dispute.

India 262-4 beat West Indies 255-7 by seven runs

India entered the final of the IndianOil Cup after scoring a tense seven-run victory over West Indies in Colombo. A century by Yuvraj Singh and a well-paced knock by Mohammad Kaif helped India reach 262 for 4, the tournaments highest score, following which a fatal mixture of mounting run-rate and inexperience saw the West Indians stumble out of the competition. Yuvraj was Indias man of the hour, with Kaif, when the team had effectively lost four batsmen and were in trouble. At 51 for 3, with Dravid, Virender Sehwag and VVS Laxman out, and Sourav Ganguly in hospital after a short delivery thudded into an unprotected arm, Yuvraj and Kaif had quite a task ahead. India managed only 24 for 2 in the first 10 and 89 runs in the last 10, helped by Mahendra Singh Dhoni's daring batting.

Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium, Dambulla

The opening of Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium on 23 March 2001 was an historic event in Sri Lankan cricket. The new Cricket Stadium was built in 155 days, on a World Heritage listed area in the middle of a jungle. India Cricket Live

R. Premadasa Stadium, Khettarama, Colombo

The Premadasa International Cricket Stadium (known prior to June 1994 as the Khetterama Cricket Stadium) was the brainchild of the late Sri Lanka President Ranasinghe Premadasa, who championed the development of this colossal 35,000-seater concrete bowl, the biggest stadium in Sri Lanka. Opened on February 2, 1986 with a limited overs match between a Sri Lanka 'B' side and an England 'B' team, the stadium was built on swampland previously used by monks ferrying across to the Khettarama temple adjacent to the stadium. The inaugural one-day international was played on April 5, 1986 between Sri Lanka and New Zealand. On August 28, 1992 it hosted its inaugural Test match between Sri Lanka and Australia. The venue is best remembered for holding the world record for the highest Test total - 952/6 declared by Sri Lanka against India in 1997/98 in which former Sri Lanka captain Sanath Jayasuriya scored 340 and Roshan Mahanama 225, the pair sharing the highest partnership for any wicket in Test cricket with 576 for the second wicket.
