Sehwag powers India to win 6 wickets with unbeaten 99

India earlier put in a restricted bowling performance to bowl Sri Lanka out for 170.

Praveen Kumar (2-20) rocked Sri Lankan's top order when he bowled Upul Tharanga with the very 1st ball of the match and then fascinated former skipper Mahela Jayawardene leg-before in his 4th over.

Left-arm spinners Pragyan Ojha (3-36) and Ravindra Jadeja (2-34) also kept up the pressure as India never allowed the hosts to build a big partnership.

Tillakaratne Dilshan top-scored with a fighting 45 in Sri Lanka's disappointing batting performance after the hosts elected to bat.

Dilshan was the 5th man to be dismissed, sweeping Ojha to Rohit Sharma at mid-wicket after hitting 5 fours in his 62-ball knock.

Sri Lanka, struggling at 103-7 in the 32nd over, managed to cross the 150-mark, thanks to gutsy knocks from Randiv (43) and Nuwan Kulasekara (22). Randiv hit four boundaries in his 61-ball knock. Ishant Sharma took 2-32.

Virender Sehwag hit two sixes and 11 fours in his 100-ball knock as India raced to the 171-run target with more than 15 overs to spare in the day-night match for their 1st win in this odi Series.

Sehwag, 31, was one short of his 13th one-day hundred when the match ended with off-spinner Suraj Randiv's no-ball, which was eventually smashed for a six by the batsman.
