India look to shake off opening loss as they take on Sri Lanka

Monday, 01 July 2013 - 18:10



India would look to get over the disappointment of a narrow loss when they take on familiar sub-continental foes Sri Lanka in their second match of the tri-nation ODI series tomorrow.


The one-wicket loss to the West Indies yesterday ended India's nine-match winning streak during which they lifted the Champions trophy in London last month.


India had won four Tests against Australia and five matches in the recent Champions Trophy on the trot.


Sri Lanka, on the other hand, were quite literally mauled in their opening match.


They just about managed to post a little over 200 and were then left to contend with a raging Chris Gayle, who unleashed his fury in the most devastating manner.
