Sehwag was the only batsman to score a double hundred against Sri Lanka. But the openers today are not doing so bad at all.
Sharma was out for 43 in 36 balls. He was lower of the two openers but well supported by the hitter Dhawan who made a spectacular 50 out of just 25 balls. He smashed CAK Rajitha and Parera with a rate of above 200 percent. One 6 and lovely 2 boundaries were hit by the Dhawan.
Both Sharma and Dhawan took the total to 75 until Dhawan was the first one to become a victim of Chameera. Chandimal was the fielder this time who caught Dhawan . A spectacular innings was finished by a spectacular catch.
In the 14th over, Sharma was the second one to go. The score was well above 100 in the 14th over. After hitting one six and two lovey fours, Sharma was caught by Chameera of his own bowling for 43. That was a big blow and Sri Lankans fans and players all gone nuts with this lovely departure of dangerously playing Sharma.
Raina joined Rahane for the party and the match is going well a the moment, India has not lost many wickets. They have a bag full of hitters still to enter the crease. The last few remaining overs are going to be blistering. Maybe Dhoni will promote himself in the order , who knows?
India did so well to reach 100 in ten overs. The predictions are high for the Indian team as Ravi Shastri and Dhoni are determined to beat Sri Lanka today at any cost.Now the fate of India is in the hands of Rahane and Hardik Pandya. Hardkik has done justice to his batting order by hitting a very early sixer for India. Lets hope he smashes some more of them and India gets to a lovely total to defend themselves against the fiery Sri Lankans today. The game is on definitely !
