its India's Day out...!!!
India is virtually out of the World Cup after crashing to a 69-run defeat to Sri Lanka in their last Group B match at Trinidad on Friday.
Chasing 255 and a place in the Super Eights, India was bowled out for 185 runs in 43.3 overs.
The only way India can now make it to the next stage is if debutantes Bermuda beat Bangladesh on Sunday, though that looks highly unlikely.
chasing the target of 255 india lost two important wickets of robin and dada.Barring skipper Rahul Dravid and Virender Sehwag, none of the Indian batsmen managed to find their feet against a precise and beguile Sri Lankan attack.master Blaster was not even able to master-carve his score to 1.Went off on ducking duck.Then all other players just attended crease for the sake as if they had played this match for not to enter super 8,but to visit back to home town,and enjoy.
Great job by srilankan bowlers and their teammates for putting up such a fight which was finally won by the lankans.
"Dussra boy",Muttiah Muralitharan was adjudged Man of the Match.
