India restrict Sri Lanka to 233/8 (Lead)February 8th, 2012 - 4:02 pm ICT by IANS
Perth, Feb 8 (IANS) India restricted Sri Lanka to a modest 233 for eight in the second tri-series ODI at the WACA Ground here Wednesday.
Dinesh Chandimal struck a crucial 64 off 81 balls while former captain Tillakaratne Dilshan (48) and Angelo Mathews (33 not out) contributed well in what was otherwise an uninspiring batting effort by Sri Lanka.
Indian pacer Zaheer Khan (2-44) picked up the crucial wickets of Kumar Sangakkara (26) and Upul Tharanga (4) while spinner Ravichandran Ashwin bagged three for 32.
Chandimal played a responsible knock while his experienced team-mates failed. Chandimal’s knock ensured Sri Lanka at least reached a defendable total.
Chandimal finally gave away his wicket when he charged down the wicket, with Mahendra Singh Dhoni completing the stumping after a slight fumble.
India opted against resting Sachin Tendulkar and replaced Gautam Gambhir with Virender Sehwag.
