Tri-Series in West Indies 2013

Toss: India won the toss and elected to bowl.

Result: India win by 1 wicket

India 1st innings

End of Over 50 (16 runs)
Bowler: Shaminda Eranga
India: 203-9 (rr 4.06)

49.4
Six Runs
SIX! Eranga to Dhoni. Length ball, off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over deep extra cover for 6 runs. Dhoni finishes it with a huge 6 over mid off. The India captain has been sensational here as India looked down and out just a few minutes ago but he had faith in his last over hitting and has seen his side home. Sri Lanka bowled superbly throughout and will be disappointed they've not managed to defend this total as the pitch was assisting the bowlers in the 2nd innings. India win the Tri Nations though and they add another bit of silverware to their ever increasing trophy cabinet.

49.3
Four Runs
FOUR! Eranga to Dhoni. Length ball, outside off stump on the front foot driving, in the air uncontrolled past third man for 4 runs. Wide and this time Dhoni has a wild swing at it. The ball races to the deep point boundary and India are closing in.

49.2
Six Runs
SIX! Eranga to Dhoni. Length ball, off stump on the front foot Slog, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs. On a lovely length for Dhoni who just drives it straight back over the bowler's head. 9 required from 4 balls.

India: 185-9 (rr 3.85)

47.6
No Runs
Malinga to Dhoni. Length ball, off stump on the front foot pushing, to point for no runs, direct hit by Herath. Nearly a horrible mix up for India as Ishant is looking for the single at the non strikers end and backs up too far. Dhoni pushes it to cover where Herath picks up and fires a throw to Ishant's end, but misses.

Wicket
OUT! Caught (Sub). Mathews to Kumar. Back of a length, off stump on the front foot Slog, top edge in the air uncontrolled to backward point. Will Dhoni regret taking the single from the first ball?
