Today India bowled out Sri Lanka for a modest 179, chased it quite comfortably and won by 7 wickets. Once again Dhoni's strategy to play 5 bowlers paid off.
Sachin batted brilliantly and played attacking cricket. Its remarkable that he has been suggested to bat down the order. People forget that he is still a giant of player when fielders are inside the circle. He has got the ability to find gaps at ease and take quick singles when bowlers are on top. The way he played Murali was awesome. Although Murali got better of him later, he was trying to correct the shot on way back to pavilion.
If he is back in his groove, then India have got a real chance in the finals.
