On a tour of many disappointments for India, Tuesday’s contest against Sri Lanka offers them a chance, albeit an extremely difficult one, of prolonging their fight to stay alive in the tri-series. Going by recent results – three straight defeats – the bonus-point win that India need to entertain any hope of qualifying for the finals seems a long shot. Their bowling attack is weakened due to injuries, their batsmen have struggled, there’s been talk of a communication gap between players, their captain wasn’t even aware the team stood a chance of qualifying going into their final league game and they are up against opponents who’ve peaked impressively.
There is much at stake for India in what might or might not be their last match of the trip. A shot at a place in the finals aside, there’ll be those in the team who’ll be under pressure to keep their spots in the ODI side as the selectors meet to pick the squad for the Asia Cup on Wednesday. The misery of the India teams of the 90s when touring overseas has returned to haunt this side and Tuesday’s contest is as much an opportunity to restore some pride, to slightly repair a damaged reputation – something that, if achieved, will mark a significant rise from a spate of on-field problems that has let the team down.
Sri Lanka are well-equipped to thwart any such turnaround after three straight wins, the third a hard-fought one against Australia in Hobart, the venue for Tuesday’s game. Both Tillakaratne Dilshan and Mahela Jayawardene have scored at the top, their young middle order has been productive, and the bowling largely consistent and free of injury. A defeat is a possibility, a cataclysmic fall that will concede a bonus point a very distant one.
