Sri Lanka were seriously waiting for this day to relish and rejoice as they showed what they are capable of doing just about being spot on in their bowling attack. Every time, they go one on one against the Indians, they get all the battering and beating. But, this time, they came up with a pinpoint strategy to cause hiccups to the dominant Indians.

The visitors were nothing short of being impressive at the picturesque HPCA Stadium, Dharamsala. Their incisive performance is a testimony to the fact that they have every possible ingredient in them to outsmart the opposition. It’s just the feeling that if they go on to continue the same, they might not be any more called as ‘depleted Lankans’.

Barring MS Dhoni, others failed to up the ante, courtesy Sri Lankan bowlers ran through India’s batting defence to get the outcome what they really wanted. Thisara Perera must be definitely pleased with his teammates for the things that have gone in their favour. Sri Lanka did a spectacular job in turning the tide in the ODI setup after losing the Test series at the hands of the Indians.

Though the chances of India winning the opening encounter looks bleak, they might just give a try. MS Dhoni won the Indians’ hearts by essaying a stellar 65 with a flurry of 10 fours and 2 towering sixes. Suranga Lakmal was the pick of the Lankan bowlers for his impressive 4/13 with 4 maidens to his kitty.

Here is how Twitter reacted to India’s flop performance in the opening episode against Sri Lanka:
