IND vs SL, match 8, Adelaide: India beat Sri Lanka by 2 wickets

India beat Sri Lanka by two wickets in their one-day cricket tri-series match at Adelaide on Tuesday.
Earlier, Kumar Sangakkara rescued Sri Lanka's innings from a precarious start, scoring 128 and sharing a 153-run stand with Mahela Jayawardene on Tuesday to set India 239 to win the tri-series limited-overs cricket international. Sri Lanka, needing a win to boost its chances of reaching the final of the series that also involves Australia, recovered to post 238 for six after a horrendous start.
Sangakkara went in with the total at 4 for 1 in the first over when Tillakaratne Dilshan (4) was caught behind off Munaf Patel on the fourth ball. He was joined by his skipper in the third over when veteran opener Sanath Jayasuriya was run out by Patel to make the total 6-2.
Together, the third-wicket pair combined for 153 runs in an innings-salvaging stand that ended when Jayawardene was run out for 71 in the 38th over after facing 99 balls.
Sangakkara's seventh one-day international century lasted 155 balls and finally came to end on the last ball of the penultimate over, caught at deep mid-wicket off Pathan's bowling for a resilient 128 that contained 12 boundaries. Silva was out for 21 in the last over as the Sri Lankans chased quick runs.

IND vs SL, match 8, Adelaide: India, Sri Lanka fight for final slot

While Australia has secured a place in the final, India and Sri Lanka will confront each other for the second place in a Commonwealth Bank Limited over series match at the Adelaide Oval today in a day/night match.
Both teams have fared in similar fashion as the bowlers having the final say, and the batsmen unable to make much of an impact so far in the series besides some sporadic individual performances by some players.
The Sri Lanka team had a practice session last morning at the adjoining nets at the stadium, but skipper Mahela Jayawardena was not in a position to disclose the final composition of the team anticipating the fitness of Ishara Amarasinghe who was unable to play in two games due to a hamstring injury. Like Ishant Sharma who was impressive for India, Amarasinghe could strengthen the Lankans if bowling selected to play. Sri Lanka team (from): Mahela Jayawardena (Captain), Sanath Jayasuriya, T.M. Dilshan, Kumar Sangakkara, Chamara Silva, Chamara Kapugedera, Farveez Maharoof, Nuwan Kulasekera, Chaminda Vaas, Lasith Malinga, Muttiah Muralitharan, Upul Tharanga, Chanaka Welegedera and Dilruwan Perera.
India team (from): Mahendra Singh Dhoni (Captain), Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Gautham Ghambir, Rohith Sharma, Robin Uthappa, Yuvraj Singh, Irfan Pathan, Harbhajan Singh, Shanthakumaran Sreesanth, Ishant Sharma, Munaf Patel and R.P. Singh.
