Hobart: Feb 28, 2012

Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli hit half-centuries as India reached 190 for two from 25 overs chasing 321 to win in the 11th ODI of the Commonwealth Bank tri-series at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart.

Gambhir faced 53 deliveries to reach 56 not out, which included four boundaries.

Kohli struck four boundaries to reach an unbeaten 57, which came off 51balls.

The two Delhi cricketers have added 104 runs for the third wicket.

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.

India need to achieve the target in 40 overs in order to earn the much-needed bonus point, which will help them to strengthen their bid for a place in the finals.

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.
