Virat Kohli smashed an unbeaten 133 from 86 balls to lead India to a seven-wicket, bonus-point victory over Sri Lanka on Tuesday .321 off 40 overs is one thing. Finishing it off in 36.4 is quite another.
Sri Lanka batted first and scored 320-4 in 50 overs, with Tillakaratne Dilshan scoring an unbeaten 160 and sharing a 200-run second-wicket stand with Kumar Sangakkara (105).But Indians left the islanders stunned by achieving the target with 80 balls to spare and more importantly inside the required 40 overs.
India will now have to await the result of the last league match between Australia and Sri Lanka to know their fate. They will qualify to the finals only if Australia beat Sri Lanka in the last league game.
