India vs Sri Lanka Third ODI at Colombo

IND v SL, 3rd ODI, Colombo: India beat Sri Lanka by 147 runs to seal series (IND 3:0)

Yuvraj Singh and Virender Sehwag cracked blistering centuries as a ruthless India clinched the five-match cricket series against Sri Lanka by spanking the hosts by 147 runs in the third ODI at Colombo.
Electing to bat first, India rode on a 221-run stand for the third wicket between Sehwag (116) and Yuvraj (117) to amass 363 for five, their highest score in Sri Lanka.
Chasing the mammoth total, Sri Lanka folded for 216 in 41.4 overs, despite Kumar Sangakkara's defiant 83 off 82 balls. Left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha did the maximum damage to Sri Lanka, claiming four for 38.
India thus took an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series and both the teams will square off again here on Thursday for the fourth match.
The capacity crowd at the R Premadasa Stadium found the only solace when off-spinner Muttiah Muralitharan removed Yuvraj to equal Wasim Akram's world record tally of 502 ODI scalps. This was India's highest total on Sri Lankan soil, eclipsing the previous best of 307 for 6 in 1998 at the same venue.
IND v SL, 3rd ODI, Colombo: India 363-5 (50.0 overs) beat Sri Lanka 214 (41.4 overs) by 147 runs

IND v SL, 3rd ODI, Colombo: Sri Lanka seek consistency in vital India one-dayer

Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardene is looking for a consistent all-round performance from his team in the crucial third one-day international against India starting at Colombo on Tuesday.
It is a must-win tie after the home team lost the first two games of the five-match series but Jayawardene said his side were capable of raising their performance. The Sri Lankan captain said his team needed to put more pressure on in-form India who had won their last seven one-dayers, including five against England at home last year.
India made one change to their 15-man squad, with paceman Lakshmipathy Balaji replacing injured Munaf Patel.
India team (from): Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Captain), Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, Ravindra Jadeja, Yusuf Pathan, Zaheer Khan, Ishant Sharma, Lakshmipathy Balaji, Pragyan Ojha, Irfan Pathan, Praveen Kumar.
Sri Lanka team (from): Mahela Jayawardene (Captain), Sanath Jayasuriya, Kumar Sangakkara, Upul Tharanga, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Chamara Kapugedera, Thilina Kandamby, Jehan Mubarak, Farveez Maharoof, Muttiah Muralitharan, Ajantha Mendis, Dilhara Fernando, Nuwan Kulasekara, Thilan Thushara, Angelo Mathews.
