Preview: India vs Srilanka 3rd ODI,Colombo,2012

Writing a post for the first time in this blog which is dedicated to Indian Cricket.
India vs Srilanka these two teams have played so many matches in the recent past that it is very difficult to say which team will play like a champion on a particular match day. Talking about this micromax cup 2012 which started with India showing a powerful batting performance with the likes of sehwag and kohli firing all cylinders and srilanka dropping catches of some main players of indian team.In the end srilanka lost despite a wonderful batting performance from kumar sangakara.
Coming to the 2nd ODI- India showed a miserable batting performance.Gambhir played a fighting knock of 65 but didnot get any support from other batsmen.Srilanka chased a small total of 139 with ease.Dilshan and tharanga scored 50's.
Now the series is level at 1-1 and India will be looking for a fight back.In any 5 match series the 3rd ODI is of very much Importance because the Team winning this game will have a upper hand on winning the series. India needs to Pile up runs and for that the first four top order batsmen need to give a better batting performance and thier ground fielding + catching needs to improve  where as Srilanka have a very good bowling line up and thier bowlers are looking in very good form.
Colombo is the venue for this ODI and India have Played many ODI's on this venue.Gambhir and Sehwag are in good touch that is a good sign for Indian Team But India needs to get quick breakthrough during Intial Part of Srilankan Innings because Indian Bowlers have always been pretty expensive during the latter part of the innings.
We have a very intresting battle on our hands and this will be a series deciding match with both teams applying their full strength.
