India vs Sri Lanka, CB Series 11th ODI- Full match highlights: Video
India kept their hopes alive of qualifying for the finals of the Commonwealth Bank tri-series by thrashing Sri Lanka by seven wickets at the Bellerive Oval on Tuesday.
Chasing 321 in 40 overs to get a bonus point, Virat Kohli smashed an unbeaten 133 to finish the game off in 36.4 overs.
India made a brisk start in their chase, as openers Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag took the attack to the opposition.
Sehwag looked aggressive right from the word go, and hit five boundaries and a six off just 16 balls. He was dismissed by Farveez Maharoof.
Tendulkar hit five boundaries during his 30-ball stay, scoring 39.
After India lost their openers, Gautam Gambhir and Kohli teamed up to lead their sideâ€™s charge. Gambhir and Kohli added 115 runs for the third wicket.
Gambhirâ€™s innings came to an end when he was runout for 63 which came off 64 balls.
Kohli clobbered 16 boundaries and two sixes during his stunning knock of 133 not out.
Earlier, India produced a listless bowling diaplay as Tillakaratne Dilshan and Kumar Sangakkara slammed a century each to power Sri Lanka to an imposing 320 for four.
Dilshan equaled his career-best score with an unbeaten 160, his 11th century in 230 ODIs and first in a year, while Sangakkara made a quickfire 105 to register the 13th century of his career.
Sent into bat, Dilshan anchored Sri Lanka's innings and hit 11 fours and three huge sixes during his 165-ball unbeaten stay.
Sangakkara, on the other hand, was at his destructive best, piling up his 105 runs off just 87 balls with eight boundaries and two huge hits over the fence.
