India's Vs Sri Lanka Highest Against Team At Dambulla

Filled under:

Skipper Kumar Sangakkara added an unbeaten 42 to go with his first innings 219, and called time with just an hour left in the game. India had folded their first innings on 707, their second highest score in Test cricket.

India were dismissed for 63 off 25.5 overs and Australia (64/1) reached their target off just 21 overs. India have recorded their worst defeat in terms of balls remaining (209), eclipsing their loss to Australia by 9 wickets with 174 balls remaining at Sydney in the Benson & Hedges World Series on January 8, 1981.

So right from the word go both teams tried to go hard at each other. But it was Sri Lankan team that succeeded in it. In addition to this all the fans were also hoping to witness a nail-biter I today’s Ind Vs Sl match. Especially after the no-ball controversy this match was considered to be a battle of pride as well for both the teams.
