Mahela & Nuwan shine as Sri Lanka down India: Tri-series final (Mirpur)

Fine new ball bowling from Nuwan Kulasekara 438 and Chanaka Welegedara 353 left India reeling at 60 for five on a good pitch but they recovered well through Suresh Raina's sparkling knock 106 and Ravindra Jadeja 38 to make 245 all out. Sri Lanka cruised to the title win with Kumar Sangakkara 55 and Tillakaratne Dilshan 49 putting on 93 after Tharanga went 3rd ball for a duck. Mahela Jayawardene 71 not out held the middle order together and finished with a blitz as they downed India by four wickets. Triseries final Mirpur. Jan 2010.

Raina put up a good fight but Sri Lanka were clinical in their fine win. Had to believe that SL won after all the recent hammerings in finals and to India.

Nice to see my favourite other team win. Well done Sri Lanka.
