    India's ODI Tour of Sri Lanka - Jan 28 to Feb 10, 2009

    India are scheduled to arrive in Colombo on January 26, playing five one-day internationals and a Twenty20 international.

    India begin their tour on January 28 with the first of two ODIs in Dambulla - the second will be held on January 30 - before the series returns to Colombo. The third and fourth ODIs will be at the Premadasa Stadium on February 2 and 5, followed by the final game at the SSC on February 8. India wrap up their tour with a Twenty20 international at the Premadasa on February 10.

    Apart from the fifth ODI, all games will be played under lights.

    India toured Sri Lanka in July-August of 2008, losing the Tests 2-1 and winning the ODIs 3-2.

    India's itinerary
    • January 28 - 1st ODI at Dambulla (d/n)
    • January 30 - 2nd ODI at Dambulla (d/n)
    • February 2 - 3rd ODI at R Premadasa Stadium (d/n)
    • February 5 - 4th ODI at R Premadasa Stadium (d/n)
    • February 8 - 5th ODI at SSC
    • February 10 - Twenty20 at R Premadasa Stadium (d/n)

    The Indian squad for the short tour of Sri Lanka starting later this month would be picked in Mumbai on January 18, according to BCCI.

    I said because quite a few countries have expressed reservations about touring Sri Lanka.
    And I was surprised that even the issue never came up, as if every thing was normal there.

    Well, Teams from the sub-continents never raise such an issue... India not going to Pakistan was a government's diplomatic decision... not BCCI's...

    Poor Sachin was wrongly given out by Umpire(Dharmsena- who hanged his boots just couple of yrs back!)...

    But cricket is a great leveller as Gambhir was given not out by 3rd umpire due to benefit of the doubt... It appeared to me that catch was taken cleanly... He was dropped on two occassions too... One of them was a lollypop!

    India has lot two wickets in quick succession... Score is 144-3 in 29 overs.. Yuvi & Dhoni are on the crease...

    Sachin is once again out due to a poor decision by the umpire..
    the umpiring has been very bad in this whole series...

    What's happening??? :crying:

    Sehwag drives to mid off and calls immediately but it was timed too well as Jayasuriya got to the ball quickly and knocked down the stumps at the non-striker's end! :32:

    A brilliant innings nevertheless! :clap: :clap: :clap:

    Sehwag : run out (Jayasuriya) 116(90)

    We would have easily reached atleast 400 runs if the duo had stayed..
    But, still....
    Let's not loose hope...

    I'm waiting to see Balaji back on action...(Both batting and bowling)...

    Current Score :

    Raina comes down the track and tries to drive through cover but was nowhere near the delivery as it spun away from him, easy stumping for Sanga!

    Raina : st Sangakkara b Mendis 9(14)

    The 40th over was a maiden over...
    The rates are ticking down...

    Yusuf seems to be in a good touch. He had just hit a six from a deliver from Jayasurya...

    Yes. We now need to take 12 more runs from 12 balls to reach 350.

    But field appears to be a small one, so if the batsmen place it correctly then they also have an equal chance of winning.. a lot rides on our fielders and bowlers...
