Gambhir falls early, India in trouble

Leave a Comment
India vs Sri Lanka, India in Sri Lanka ODI Series (2008) - 1st ODI
Date: 18 Aug 2008

Gambhir was dimissed off the second delviery of the match bowled by Chaminda Vaas. Gambhir became Vaas' 399th victim and Chaminda is just one short of the prestigious 400-wickets club. The Indians had a blow early on when Sehwag was ruled out of the match. Much was expected from Gambhir in the absence of Sehwag, as the openers were the only batsmen who scored consistently in the recent test series.

Vaas and Kulasekara are bowling with good line and length and the Indians are struggling. The first three overs brought in just one run each. The next two overs contributed three runs each. At the end of five overs, the Indians are pathetically placed at 9/1. Virat Kohli is unbeaten on 6 from 11 deliveries, while Suresh Raina is playing with 2 runs from 17 deliveries.
