2nd ODI: India beats Sri Lanka by 4 wickets
Sachin might have missed out another chance to create history, but Ravichandran Ashwin (30 not out) and Ravindra Jadeja (24 not out) played sensibly to help India beat Sri Lanka by 4 wickets as they opened their account in the tri-series at the WACA in Perth on Wednesday.
Post winning the toss, the Sri Lankan team was all set to go for the kill and the players indeed gave a good start to their innings. But with the help of Ashwin's spin and Zaheer's pace attack, Team India managed to restrict former to 233 runs for 8 wickets.
Dilshan (48) and Chandimal (64) were the top scorers.
