A splendid performance by the Indians ensured that they go on to win their first ever bilateral tie in Sri Lanka. Special credit should be given to Zaheer Khan who was amidst a brilliant spell. He was ably supported by Praveen Kumar, Munaf Patel and Harbhajan Singh.

As for the batting department Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Suresh Raina played a couple of good innings in consecutive matches and that partnership ensured that enough damage was inflicted to the Lankans. They way they handled both the spinners, Ajantha Mendis and Muttiah Muralidaran was creditable. Probably this should end the talk of Indians not playing spin properly in recent times. MSD should be a happy man.
