India added another jewel in their crown by defeating Sri Lanka in the tri-series final in West Indies. Incredibly, Team India came back from the verge of being knocked out, having lost the first two matches, to go on and win the tournament.
MS Dhoni produced what could easily be one of the greatest ever knocks in the history of ODI cricket to help India pull off a miraculous win over Sri Lanka to clinch the Celkon Mobile Tri-Series. Dhoni steered India to a nerve-wrecking one-wicket win with just two balls to spare.
How drastically fortunes have changed in the tri-series being played in the Caribbean. Till a few days ago, West Indies were favourites to make it to the final, and India were on the verge of being knocked out.
India bounced back in style at Port of Spain winning both its matches here with bonus points to top the table in the Tri Series. The Men in Blue thrashed Sri Lanka by 81 runs in what was a rain-curtailed affair at the Queen’s Park Oval. Sri Lanka given a revised target of 178 in 26 overs crashed out to a sorry total of 96 in 24.4 overs.
