New Delhi :  

Sri Lanka defeated defending champions India by 7 wickets as their batsmen overcame a huge 321 run total while scripting a great victory.

ICC Champions Trophy - India vs Sri Lanka at Oval (India Innings Report)

 Sri Lankan captain Angelo Matthews won the toss and invited India to bat on a seam-friendly track at Oval in London. The Indian openers Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma started off cautiously against the Lankan seamers but eventually broke loose. Dhawan and Sharma forged a good opening stand to build a strong foundation for India. Dhawan got to his 10th ODI ton. Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma contributed handsomely with a well made 78. Mallinga eventually broke the Indian resistance by scalping Rohit Sharma. Nuwan Pradeep pegged the Indians back by scalping the skipper Virat Kohli for a duck. Yuvraj Singh didn't last long as he fell cheaply to Asela Gunaratne for seven. India's ace finisher MS Dhoni then joined Shikhar Dhawan to step up the run rate with a flurry of boundaries. Dhawan eventually fell to Mallinga for a scintillating 127. Dhoni then combined with Kedhar Jadhav to step up the gas in the last five overs to power India to an imposing 321 total.

Pitch report: "This is a fresh wicket. This is the first time this pitch is being used in the Champions Trophy. There is fresh grass, which means the pace bowlers will get some lateral movement. When I put my hand on it, I can feel the moisture. I don't see any assistance for the spinners. One would be tempted to bowl first here," opines Saba Karim.
