India vs Sri Lanka 2014, 4th ODI at Eden Gardens: Umesh Yadav dismisses Kusal Perera


Nov 13, 2014

Umesh Yadav struck early for India against Sri Lanka in the fourth One-Day International (ODI) at Eden Gardens. Kusal Perera was out trying to pull one early, falling to Umesh for the third time in three games.

Earlier, Rohit Sharma scored his second double hundred to help India score 404 for five. Virat Kohli scored a good 66 in a partnership of 201 runs for the third wicket with Rohit as India piled on the runs against a hapless Sri Lankan attack. Rohit was dropped in the fifth over by Thisara Perera, a miss that cost the visitors dearly.

Karn Sharma, the right-arm leg-spinner, made his debut for India. Apart from him, Stuart Binny, Robin Uthappa, and Rohit Sharma came back into the Indian side at the cost of Wriddhiman Saha, Ishant Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, and Ravichandran Ashwin. For Sri Lanka, Ajantha Mendis, Lahiru Thirimanne, Dinesh Chandimal, and Shaminda Eranga made comebacks to the side.
