Preview & Highlights
The worldcup finalists are back again, face to face today on the historic ground of Perth. Indian team plagued by continuous himiliation at Australia is up against a relatively week team and this is best time for it to regain the confidence that is shattered by what happened so far on the soil of Australia.
India had decided to give a bit rest to Virender Sehwag in the first ODI but all indications are that this star will be back in the team today.
WACA pitch is traditionally a bouncy one and this would be prudent for them to exclude their spin attack. They would rather opt for Umesh Yadav and Zaheer Khan.
So far Sri Lanka and India have played five matches against each other in Australia and Indian has supremacy so far. They won two matches against one loss and two other matches yielded no results.
This is the same ground where last month India lost the third match to Asutralia. This is still to watch what kind of impressions this ground will yield to their minds. However the total record for India on WACA is not so bad as it had won three matches and lost five in the past.
Fast outfield gives hopes that this match will be a high scoring match. Both the teams have won five matches against each other if we look at the past ten contests between them. An even record and a hope for a healthy competition today.
Sri Lankan strength is visible in the shape of its yound trio: Dinesh Chandimal, Lahiru Thirimanne and Thisara Perera. Then there are Mahela Jayawardene, Kumar Sangakkara and Tillakaratne Dilshan in the team that act as a backbone for their batting side. off-spinner Sachitra Senanayke is a rising star for them who has proved his worth in the last two ODI’s with economy rate of 5042.
