Sri Lanka Too Slow
Sri Lanka won the toss and elected to bat, slowly. Making just 193 runs from their 50 overs for the loss of just 7 wickets was the downfall for the Sri Lankan team as they went down three games to one in the best of season series versus India.
Harbhajan Singh was the pick of the bowlers, again, for India, restricting the Sri Lankan middle overs with tidy figures of two for twenty seven from ten.
In reply, the Indian's slowly worked their way to the target, finally reaching their goal in the 44th over. Opener Uthappa was unlucky not to come out with triple figures, ending not out on 94. Ganguly aided in the victory with a nice, well played innings of 44.

MS Atapattu 32 (39)
Harbhajan Singh 2-27 (10)
