India Batting + Presentation

Watch free online highlights from the 5th ODI - Sri Lanka vs India - from the 2008 Idea Cup Series. Sri Lanka won this final game.

Well, the series was taken by India last match, all that remained was whether it would be a 3-2 or 4-1 series win. The match was also relevant for a couple of batsman woefully in need of runs - Kumar Sangakkara and Yuvraj Singh. Sangakkara ended his worst ever series having gotten out for 1, while Yuvraj looked super until Mendis came on and got him first ball. Earlier, Sri Lanka without Muralitharan and Vaas batted first and reached 227 mainly thanks to a 94 off 78 partnership between Mubarak and Thushara (yet again with the bat; this time a half century) for the 7th wicket. India played Irfan Pathan, Pragyan Ojha and RP Singh today. The Sri Lankan innings highlights are basically a wickets and 4s package. Look out for Ojha's delivery to Jayawardene. Sri Lanka finally won a toss, put India under the lights and things looked a little different. A great win for India though, coming after nearly 2 decades of losing in Sri Lanka.

Highlights of the Indian batting also include the Man of the Series (MS Dhoni) and post match presentation.
