Mumbai, December 2-6, 2009

Mumbai, Day 5: India on Top of the World (IND-SRL: 2-0|3)

Zaheer Khan dismissed Sangakkara, Herath and Kulasekara in quick succession during his morning spell for his 8th 5-wicket haul, to lead India to a sensational victory over Sri Lanka by an innings and 24 runs. India took the 3-match series 2-0 and now leads the ICC Test rankings chart for the first time ever - with 124 points from 29 matches. South Africa 122 (30 matches) and Australia 116 (31) are in the second and third position.Resuming at Saturday's score of 274-6, Sri Lanka was bowled out for 309. It was India's second straight innings victory over Sri Lanka in the series. Offspinner Harbhajan Singh had Muttiah Muralitharan (14) caught behind to complete the victory.
In India's first innings total of 726/9 declared, six batsmen posted fifty or more for India for the fifth time in Tests - Vijay (87), Sehwag (293), Dravid (74), Tendulkar (53), Laxman (62) and Dhoni (100*). Sehwag was named Man of the Match for his 293. He was also named Man of the Series. It was Sehwag's fourth Man of the Series award, and eighth Man of the Match award.India's overall Test record after the Bombay Test: Played 433, won 101, lost 136, tied one and drawn 195.

Mumbai, Day 4: India on the brink of victory despite Sangakkara's ton

Captain Kumar Sangakkara hit 19 fours and a six, during his twenty-first Test hundred (133 not out), but Sri Lanka closed day four in the final Test on 274/6, still needing 59 to make India bat again.Sri lanka started the day disastrously, as Dilshan (16) was sent back wrongly in a mere 8.5 overs, given out lbw to Harbhajan (1-70), with the score on 29. Then Paranavitana (54) managed to make a steady partnership with Sangakkara, bringing the score to 119 runs before he was dismissed by Sreesanth (1-36) in his first over after lunch. Zaheer (2-51) then struck twice in a magnificent five-over spell, in which he conceded just three runs. Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha (2-84) picked up the last two wickets that fell on day four.
Sri Lanka 393 and 274/6 (Sangakkara 133*, Paranavitana 54) trail India 726/9 dec by 59 runs

Mumbai, Day 3: Dhoni hits ton; Sehwag misses triple

Mahendra Singh Dhoni struck a spectacular hundred after Virender Sehwag fell seven runs short of a record third test triple century as India remained on top on day three of the final Test. Dhoni declared India's innings just before stumps at 726/9 - India's highest Test Innings total - as soon as he completed his third 100 by hitting a six that landed outside the Brabourne Stadium. India's run rate was 4.44 runs per over.In the morning, all eyes were on Sehwag, who could add just nine runs to his overnight score before offering a return catch to offspinner Muttiah Muralitharan to be dismissed for 293. Sehwag's overnight partner Rahul Dravid (74) soon followed him to the pavilion but skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (100), VVS. Laxman (62) and Sachin Tendulkar (53) - who completed his 97th half century - piled on the agony against a weary Sri Lanka attack.Sri Lanka, who scored 393 in their first innings, were 11-0 in their second innings at stumps, requiring another 322 runs to make India bat again.
Sri Lanka 393 and 11/0 trail India 726/9 declared (Sehwag 293, Dhoni 100*, Vijay 87, Dravid 74, Laxman 62, Tendulkar 53) by 322 runs

Mumbai, Day 2: Sehwag nears fastest triple ton, India lead by 50 runs

India made a mammoth 443/1 in the first innings in reply to Sri Lanka's 393, with the help of Sehwag's unbeaten innings of 284 from just 239 deliveries. The Indians completely dominated the first three sessions after bowlers packed up the Sri Lankan tail within 30 minutes early in the day at the Brabourne.Virender Sehwag looks set for his third 300 - a feat no one has achieved in Test Cricket - after slamming his sixth double hundred. Sehwag's 284 was the second fastest double ton in Test history (168 balls) - fastest double century is by Herscelle Gibbs - and the fastest 250 ever (207 deliveries). It was also the game's third highest individual score in one day's play. Sehwag reached his first 100 off 101 deliveries, and his second took just 67 deliveries. He smashed 40 boundaries and seven sixes in his 239-delivery innings.The only Indian wicket to fall was that of Murali Vijay (87), the partnership broken at 221, just 2 runs shy of what Sehwag and Gambhir added for the first wicket in Kanpur. At stumps Rahul Dravid was on 62 after adding an unbeaten 222 with Sehwag.
India 443/1 (Sehwag 284*, Vijay 87, Dravid 62*) lead Sri Lanka 393 (Dilshan 109, Mathews 99, Paranavitana 53, Harbhajan 4-112) by 50 runs

Mumbai, Day 1: Dilshan's ton gives Sri Lanka solid start

Tillakaratne Dilshan hit a century as Sri Lanka scored 366 for eight in the first innings against India at the end of first day's play in the third and the final cricket Test at the historic Brabourne Stadium. The Brabourne Stadium was hosting it's 18th Test match, India's first after the match against England in February 1973 - 36 years ago - a record.Harbhajan Singh took four wickets to keep India on par after Opener Dilshan slammed 109 and shared in three crucial partnerships to lead Sri Lanka's charge for a series-levelling victory after opting to bat first. Angelo Matthews was 86 not out after Tharanga Paranavitana had made 53 and wicketkeeper Prasanna Jayawardene 43. Tamil Nadu opener Murali Vijay, who has played one Test, is in place of opener Gautam Gambhir, who skipped the Test to attend the wedding of his sister.
Sri Lanka 366/8 (Dilshan 109, Mathews 86*, Paranavitana 53, Harbhajan 4-107) v India
