India vs Sri Lanka - 5th One Day International in Delhi

Delhi ODI: Match abandoned; Kotla may lose 2011 WC matches (IND-SRL: 3-1|5)

The fifth and final ODI at the Kotla, on Sunday, was forced to be abandoned after 23.3 overs as the pitch was deemed too dangerous to play on. Sri Lanka had toiled on the tricky surface to post 83/5, after being put in to bat in foggy conditions, before play was abandoned. Zaheer Khan provided India a dream start, cleaning up the in-form Upul Tharanga with the first delivery of the match. As the pitch turned nasty, Dilshan was struck on the elbow by Nehra's second delivery in the tenth over. Sanath Jayasuriya was also struck on the shoulder by Zaheer first and then Sudeep Tyagi. Tyagi, who made his ODI debut, finished with figures of 6.3-1-15-1. His lone wicket was that of Kumar Sangakkara who made one. Soon after he was out, Sangakkara decided he had enough and called his batsmen back to the pavilion. There were mild, isolated protests which spread and took a violent turn when it was announced at 12:30 pm that the match has been abandoned.The Board of Control for Cricket in India responded to the fiasco by dissolving its grounds and pitches committee, while the Delhi District Cricket Association apologised to fans and spectators and offered to refund the cost of tickets. Haroon Lorgat, the ICC's chief executive, said that Delhi would not be punished for the abandonment before an investigation was held.

Chasing India's record score of 414/7 - the fifth highest in ODI history - Tillakaratne Dilshan smashed 160 and contributed in substantial stands with Upul Tharanga (67) and Kumar Sangakkara (90), but still Sri Lanka ended up 3 runs short.

Rajkot ODI: Injury worries for India, Lanka in ODI series opener

Dashing southpaw Yuvraj Singh might sit out of the first ODI match in Rajkot because of the injury he sustained on the little finger of his left-hand while fielding in the second T20 match in Mohali. Indian Captain MS Dhoni said in a press conference that Virat Kohli might play instead. Local boy Ravindra Jadeja is also being considered to be in the playing XI. India is without the services of S Sreesanth for the first two ODIs, as he is down with swine-flu. The return of Sachin Tendulkar, Zaheer Khan, Praveen Kumar and Harbhajan Singh, who were not part of the T20 team, has strengthened the hosts' batting and bowling line-up. Sachin Tendulkar is all set to become the first player to appear in 600 international games. For Sri Lanka, pacer Lasith Malinga is down with fever. Both the sides will decide their final XI only before the start today's match.India is currently second behind Australia in the ICC ODI ratings. They will need a clean sweep to reduce the gap to four ratings points to Australia's 130.

India vs Sri Lanka - 2nd Twenty20 international in Mohali

Mohali T20: Sehwag, Yuvraj help India thrash Sri Lanka (IND-SRL: 1-1|2)

A spectacular finish by birthday boy Yuvraj Singh (60 of 25 balls) helped India win the second T20 match in Mohali by six wickets and draw the two-match series 1-1. A dazzling half-century by Virendra Sehwag (64 off 36 balls) set things in motion for India, chasing a mammoth target of 207 runs, thanks largely to Kumara Sangakkara's superb 59 off 31 balls. Sangakkara won the Man of the Series award, as this came after the match winning 37-ball 78 in Nagpur. The match saw India dropping about six catches, and Sri Lanka missing one run-out chance after another. The Indian bowlers also bowled 17 wides in 20 overs. India would have lost this match (making it the fifth loss in a row) but for the Yuvraj - Dhoni partnership which blasted 80 runs off just 6 overs to secure the highest successful chase in T20 internationals.
Yuvraj Singh won the Man of the Match award for his 60 not out that included 3 fours and 5 sixes off just 25 balls, and taking 3-23 in 3 overs.
