152 run victory by India on Lanka

Share post:

152-run victory over the second best one-day side in the world by India and Rahul Dravid did not read much into India’s splendid show against the Lankans yesterday.

Only last season, India won the first two one-day matches against Pakistan only to lose the next four.

Dravid refused to get carried away. But he will never forget October 25 — a day when the big gamble of sending Irfan Pathan at number three paid off. Pathan responded with a fluent 83, the kind of innings which more accomplished willow wielders will dream of.

Rahul said, ” Irfan is a decent batsman and we thought we would try him at three today. But I would consider myself lucky that it worked out. You need a little bit of luck with such things and we managed to pull it off “.
