I was very disappointed with the way India had batted in the final of the tri nations tournament in Bangladesh. They made three changes to the playing eleven that played for the final match against the home team. India brought to the side rested Virender Sehwag , Habhajan Singh and Zaheer Khan . But the toss was won by the Srilankan's they decide to field first . It was a good toss to win as far as Srilanka are concerned. They got the initial breakthrough in the first over when a ball from kulasekhara went on to hit the stump after deflecting from the pads of Gautham Gambhir . Gautham went to the dressing room without troubling the scoreboard. Then came the man in form virat KOHLI . But he couldn't last long as he knicked the ball on its way to the wicket keeper of the bowling of welegedhera. At that time India was struggling at 4 for 2 wicket. Then came YUVRAJ ,but he was out by a brilliant catch in the 1st slip of the bowling of welegedhera . At that time the score was 16.Dhoni and Sehwag had a 32 run partnership with each other before Dhoni pushed a ball from kulasekhara to the gloves of sangakkara. In came Surerh raina . Sehwag played his aggressive shots before he was deceived by a slow short delivery from kulasekhara . At that time the score was 60/4 . Then saw a partnership between Suresh raina and Ravindra Jadeja. They added 106 runs. Jadeja was judjed leg before wicket of the bowling of Thilakaratne Dilshan. Raina and Harbhajan had a little partnership of about 40. Then Raina completed his 3rd century of his career . And eventually India was bowled out for 245.
