India begin the Tri Series with a win

India win the opening game in the tri series.

India beat Sri Lanka by 7 wickets here in Bengaluru to win the opening game of the tri series. With this win India get 3 points on the board. Earlier in the day Indian captain Ajay Reddy won the toss and opted to bowl first. The bowlers were right on the mark and kept the Lankan batsmen stranded. The visitors showed some resistance but the India bowling proved to be too good as the innings was folded at 145.

Chasing the target India lost couple of early wickets. But half centuries from Ganesh Muhudkar and Sunil Ramesh helped the host nation to a comfortable 7 wicket victory. India next take on England tomorrow at SSE grounds in Bengaluru before the action shifts to Goa.
