Delhi ODI: Match abandoned; Kotla may lose 2011 WC matches (IND-SRL: 3-1|5)

The fifth and final ODI at the Kotla, on Sunday, was forced to be abandoned after 23.3 overs as the pitch was deemed too dangerous to play on. Sri Lanka had toiled on the tricky surface to post 83/5, after being put in to bat in foggy conditions, before play was abandoned. Zaheer Khan provided India a dream start, cleaning up the in-form Upul Tharanga with the first delivery of the match. As the pitch turned nasty, Dilshan was struck on the elbow by Nehra's second delivery in the tenth over. Sanath Jayasuriya was also struck on the shoulder by Zaheer first and then Sudeep Tyagi. Tyagi, who made his ODI debut, finished with figures of 6.3-1-15-1. His lone wicket was that of Kumar Sangakkara who made one. Soon after he was out, Sangakkara decided he had enough and called his batsmen back to the pavilion. There were mild, isolated protests which spread and took a violent turn when it was announced at 12:30 pm that the match has been abandoned.The Board of Control for Cricket in India responded to the fiasco by dissolving its grounds and pitches committee, while the Delhi District Cricket Association apologised to fans and spectators and offered to refund the cost of tickets. Haroon Lorgat, the ICC's chief executive, said that Delhi would not be punished for the abandonment before an investigation was held.
