India Vs Sri Lanka 5th ODI Highlights Video, Idea Cup

Idea Cup, 2008; Sri Lanka vs India,
5th ODI Highlights; R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo, August 29, 2008

This has been an amazing tour which has witnessed some high quality cricket. After being trampled in the Test series, the Indians came back strongly with their young brigade putting up a brilliant show. It was the Mendis and Murali show in the Tests and surprisingly enough, they failed to perform in the one-dayers. Young India played them a lot better and hence the positive result. Mahendra Singh Dhoni led his side from the front with a few good knocks, Suresh Raina glittered with the bat and young Kohli showed a lot of promise about him as well. Zaheer Khan is back to his best too by performing like a real spearhead for his side. For the Sri Lankans, it was Kulasekara, Thushara, Mendis and the skipper himself who performed very well. Despite these efforts, it was India who walked away with the Idea Cup.

Result Sri Lanka won by 112 runs (D/L method)
Nuwan Kulasekara is the Man of the Match for his outstanding spell of 4 for 40 from 9 overs.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the Man of the series for his consistent run with the bat. He stacked up a brilliant 193 runs from the 5 games.
