Match fixing in Hobart? Kohli smashes Lankans, India claims bonus point

India blasted its way to 321-3 in 36.4 overs with the assistance of wayward Sri Lankan bowling for a stunning bonus-point win.

Needing the improbable target from 40 overs to earn a bonus point win, Virat Kohli smashed 133 off 86 balls to lead the Indians to the most extraordinary run-chase ever witnessed on Australian soil. The world's No 1 ODI bowler and Sri Lankan spearhead Lasith Malinga (1 for 96) was the main culprit as he was smacked all over the park in a puzzling display.

Yes this was fixed by Mahela, he had a deliberate shocker - as did Malinga. Wonder how much they made?

Even the most ardent Indian supporter knows that this game was fixed. Thanks Lanka for keeping us alive.
