Sri Lanka win by 161 runs against India

Kingston, Jamaica: India lost to Sri Lanka in the third match of the ODI Tri-Series in Kingston on Tuesday as Virat Kohli had his first full game as India captain.
India was looking to bounce back after their close loss against West Indies in the opening match. Chasing a target of 349, India was all out at 187 in 44.5 overs.
Upul Tharanga smashed a career-best unbeaten 174, while Mahela Jayawardene made 107 as Sri Lanka produced a dominant batting display to post 348 for one against India.
Tharanga scored his runs off just 159 deliveries with the help of 19 boundaries and three hits over the fence.
Jayawardene, on the other hand, faced 112 balls during his century knock. He hit nine fours and two sixes during his innings.
Towards the end, captain Angelo Mathews played a 29-ball cameo to help Sri Lanka get near the 350-run mark. He struck fours boundaries and one six in the process.
Sent into bat, Sri Lanka made a quiet start before Jayawadene and Tharanga opened up.
Shami Ahmed, who replaced Bhuveneshwar Kumar, and Umesh Yavad failed to derive any assistance from the low and slow Sabina Park wicket as the Sri Lankan opening duo milked the Indian attack.
Jayawardene, who was dropped by Murali Vijay off Ravindra Jadeja on 25, cashed in on the chance and played sensibly.
Tharanga, on the other hand, played second fiddle.
Nothing seemed to go in favour of India captain Virat Kohli, leading the side in place of the injured M.S. Dhoni.
Scoreboard:
Sri Lanka: U. Tharanga (not out) 174, M. Jayawardena c Yadav b Ashwin 107, A. Mathews (not out) 44; Extras (b-1, lb-6, w-16): 23; Total (for one wkt. in 50 overs): 348.
Fall of wicket: 1-213.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
