1st Test Day four: India vs Srilanka

Yesterday morning i had given update on the 3rd day of the first test match which is being played between India and Srilanka. At that point of time, India after 32.1 overs, had scored a total of 152/3. India was on trial of 368 runs. Virender Sehwag was batting on 95 runs and VVS Laxman on 20 runs. 

Virender Sehwag added one more century to his test match centuries list and got out scoring 109 runs. Soon VVS Laxman followed Sehwag by getting out when he reached 22 runs. Indian skipper MS Dhoni and Yuvaraj Singh some how managed to add 74 runs to the total. After the breakage of this partnership, Srilankans easily removed remaining wickets in quick succession thereby restricting Indians to 276 runs in total and took all 10 wickets. India opened their second batting innings due to follow on.

Again Gautam Gambhir did not play well as he got out in the second ball of the innings. Soon followed by Virender Sehwag. 119 runs partnership between Rahul Dravid and Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar helped team India to get some relief. But both departed scoring 44 runs and 84 runs respectively. Yuvaraj Singh too did not bet well in this innings. India are into real trouble now as they have lost 5 wickets. India has to save its wickets for the entire day so that the match can be drawn. At the end of 4th day, India landed up with a score of 181/5.

Hope rain comes and the match gets stopped so that my team will survive from defeat :-)
