Cricket News sort by Sri Lanka Vs India 1st ODI at Hambantota - Jul 21, 2012

India's win against Sri Lanka at Hambantota on Saturday was an impressive one no doubt, and Virat Kohli’s chanceless hundred, his fourth in the last five ODIs, was another example of his growing stature as a magnificent one-day batsman.

India-Sri Lanka matches, of late, have developed a rather familiar script. And, high-scoring games have often gone in India’s favour, whether they are batting first or not. Saturday’s game was no different.

India defeated Sri Lanka by 21 runs in the opening ODI at Hambantota. Irfan Pathan and R Ashwin played a key role for India taking two wickets each and keeping the scoring under a check.
