But as of now, India wins after fixing a target of 147 in the warm up match against the home team at the P Sara Oval stadium in Colombo. India wins the match by 26 runs. India scored 146/5 while  Sri Lanka was 120 all out in the 19.3 over. Irfan comes back into form with his record claim of five wickets, after just giving 25 runs.

In retaliation to the guests, Sri Lanka go on to the field with confidence. But like Lasith in the first innings of the game, Irfan Pathan strikes hard and claims two  early wickets wounding the Lankan lions. Joining Lakshmipathi Balaji the pacers reduced the hosts to a mere 45/3. But then Kumara Sangakara stepped in and played a wonderful anchor innings. He scored 32 runs and remained the highest scorer in the host team. Thirumane and Mendis scored 24 and 26 runs respectively.

Among the bowlers in addition to Irfan, his pace partner Balji also wrecked havoc on the Lankan lions and claimed three wickets. Harbhajan Singh bowled very well and claimed just a wicket.

On the whole but for the injury of our ace batsman Gautam Gambhir, eevrything else in favor of Team India. Irfan dominated, Rohit Sharma came back to form and Yuvraj Singh was in a mood to play huge strokes while the Skipper was still at his best in agility. That's all for now, but keep watching this space for a ringside analysis of the game by your favorite tweeters. (With inputs from internet-AW AarKay)
