Virat Kohli was again outstanding with the bat. He completed his 4th century in his last four innings, his 106 was probably the difference between the teams and lifted the Indian team to a 300 plus score which was aways comfortable with lights on. Srilankans are having some bad news that their frontline bowler kulasekara has injured. So, it would be now Isuru Udana sharing the new bowl Malinga.
For India, nearly everything clicked except their fieliding in the first one dayer. Their batting was spot on the top-order batsmen scored most of the runs for them with Shewag and Kholi being the noted ones. Dhoni also got some runs under his belt, that would relax him a bit especially coming out of such a long rest. Their bowling was also good but they gave away far too many extras which could have cost them the game. Their fielding was not up to the mark which is the most worrying factor
for the men in blue. Especially, if they get a small total to defend it would be really difficult to do defend, so the Indian team coach should keep an eye on it. Otherwise, it could effect the results of this series big time.
For the Srilankans, the only bright spotlight was the veteran Kumar Sangakara. Other then it both their batting and bowling looked ordinary. Their spearhead, Malinga conceeded 83 of his 10 overs quota which is a big worry for them coming into the second game. None of there bowlers showed any signs of terror in the Indian batsman they were far too easy to play. The batting also didn’t stood up except Sanga who continued his good run from the Pakistani series. The top order must start making runs for Srilanka otherwise this series could be folded really soon.

Players to Watch:
Mahela Jayawardene: Have not scored significantly since Pakistani series, his contribution could play a vital role in Srilankan team progress in this series.
Irfan Pathan: Showed selectors how vital he is for the Indian team balance, his role in second one-dayer would be one to watch out.
Pitch : The Mahinda Rajapaksa International Cricket Stadium, Sooriyawewa, Hambantota pitch is not very hard and the ball doesn’t come to the bat so smoothly. But another high scoring game is on the cards considering the batting strength of the two teams. Winning the toss and batting first will be the obvious plan.
Prediction : Though their sloppy fielding and some loose bowling in certain stages of the first game let the hosts come close, the Indian batting is strong enough to make it 2-0.
