    Sri Lanka Win a Tight Contest

    Slow batting from India, after winning the toss and electing to bat, cost them the game. Only making 222 from their 50 overs, for the loss of just one wicket, and opener Uthappa making an unbeaten ton in the last over.

    Uthappa was the mainstay, as Dravid and Ganguly made 49 and 60 not out respectively, although none of the three Indian batsmen made it into second gear. Blame could be dealt to the Indian selectors who left the little master out of the team, resting him for a sore thumb.

    The Sri Lankan bowling could be a weakness to address in future competition, having only taken 21 wickets from the 6 matches to date.

    In reply the Sri Lankan's, also, didn't manage to get out of second gear as they cruised to victory in the 48th over. Atapattu and Jayawardene topscored with 52 a piece.

    Ajit Agarkar kept it tight for India, finishing with figure of 2 for 35 from ten.

    India 222-1 (50 overs)
    AR Uthappa 100* (152), SC Ganguly 60* (77)
    ST Jayasuriya 1-37 (10)

    Sri Lanka 223-4 (47.3 overs)
    MS Atapattu 52 (67), DPMDS Jayawardene 52 (91)
    AB Agarkar 2-35 (10)

    Sri Lanka won by 6 wickets
    Man of the Match: AR Uthappa (Controversial decision for Sri Lankan fans)

    Sri Lanka : 2 - 4 : India

    Batsmen Dominate Once More

    India won the final, dead rubber, match of the series by pipping the Sri Lankan's in another run-fest. The Indian batting line up once again dominated the Sri Lankan bowlers, only losing 4 wickets in their 50 overs, with Ganguly, Tendulkar and Dravid once again the stand outs.
    Malinga was the only Sri Lankan bowler to take multiple wickets, but at more than 6 an over.

    In reply the Sri Lankan's came out all guns blazing with openers Jayasuriya and Tharanga hitting early boundaries, clearing the rope as much as going through it.
    Regular wickets ultimately was the downfall for the run chase, though, as the Sri Lankan outfit fell 17 runs short of their goal of 297. The tail wagged with Muralitharan and Maharoof both making effective, if not ugly, contributions.

    India 296-4 (50 overs)
    SC Ganguly 117 (114), SR Tendulkar 71 (100), R Dravid 62* (60)
    SL Malinga 2-67 (10)

    Sri Lanka 280-9 (50 overs)
    ST Jayasuriya 44 (44), KC Sangakkara 38 (47)
    AB Agarkar 3-53 (10), IK Pathan 2-47 (10), Harbhajan Singh 2-56 (10)

    India won by 16 runs
    Man of the Match: SC Ganguly

    Sri Lanka : 2 - 5 : India

    Series Victory for India!
