IND vs SL: India defeats Sri Lanka by 67 runs, top 5 moments from first ODI

Second ODI will be played at Edens Garden tomorrow at 1:30 pm.




India has defeated Sri Lanka by 67 runs in the first One Day Internationals at Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati, Assam. Now India has taken a lead of 1-0 in the three-match ODI series. From Virat Kohli’s 73rd century to Shami mankading Sri Lanka’s last man standing, India vs Sri Lanka first ODI was full drama, hence we bring to you top-5 moments from the battle.

Virat got lucky twice before his 45th ODI century

Virat Kohli broke Ricky Ponting’s 72 century record in international cricket last night. But before that he got lucky twice. Virat Kohli got 2 lives before the century in the first innings. He played an inning of 113 runs in 87 balls. In the 37th over, Kohli got saved after his first catch out on the ball of Kasun Rajitha. On the short off length ball, Virat went ahead and tried to play the shot, but the ball took the outer edge of the bat and went into the hands of wicketkeeper Kusal Mendis. Mendis dived to take the catch, but the ball fell from his hands to the ground. Virat was batting on 52 runs at this time.

Kohli played an inside out shot on the last ball of Rajitha’s over. The ball went up in the air, where Sri Lankan captain Dasun Shanaka dropped his catch. Kohli was batting at 81 at that time. In this way, 2 catches were missed before his century. Kohli was finally dismissed after scoring 113 runs. He was given the Player of the Match award for his innings of 113 of 87 balls.

Shami’s Mankading, Rohit’s disapproval

The moment of getting Shanaka out of Mankading is also much talked about. The reason for this is also Rohit’s decision. In the 50th over of the second innings, Shami dismissed Sri Lanka’s Dasun Shanaka from Mankading. On Shami’s appeal, the umpire gave Shanaka out, but Rohit Sharma did not take the wicket after withdrawing the appeal. Shanaka was batting on 98 at that point.

For the unversed, the International Cricket Council (ICC) recently added Mankading to the list of legal run outs. Rohit even talked about it during the post-match presentation.

Umran Malik bowled at a speed of 156 km, broke Srinath’s record

Umran Malik bowled at a speed of 156 km per hour in the first ODI against Sri Lanka. Umran Malik hit the fourth ball of the 14th over at a speed of 156 kmph and made a record.

In the 1999 World Cup, Javagal Srinath bowled at a speed of 154.5 kmph.

Malik holds the record for the fastest delivery by an Indian in international cricket. He broke his own record. Earlier, in the last T20 series against Sri Lanka, Umran bowled at a speed of 155 kmph. Umran’s name also holds the record of bowling at a speed of 157 km in IPL. Umran Malik took 3 wickets for 57 runs in the match and is yet to make his Test debut for India.

Virat’s fastest 12,500 runs

Virat played an inning of 113 runs on 87 balls against Sri Lanka. In this innings, he hit 12 fours and a six. With this innings, he also completed 12,584 runs in 257 innings in ODI.

Jasprit Bumrah meets MS Dhoni in CSK dressing room, says felt good to catch up

Following the MI vs CSK match, Jasprit Bumrah walked into the CSK dressing room and posed for a photo with the MS Dhoni



Following Sunday’s IPL 2024 encounter between Mumbai and Chennai at the iconic Wankhede Stadium, fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah was delighted to meet MS Dhoni. Bumrah, who recently defeated RCB by taking five wickets, expressed his happiness by uploading a photo of himself with the former CSK skipper.

Shortly after the match, Bumrah entered the CSK dressing room and engaged in conversation with the great Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Since then, the video, which IPL posted on X, has been making the rounds on the Internet.

Sharing the image, Bumrah wrote, met Mahi bhai after so long, felt good to catch up. In the image the two were seen wearing their team’s jerseys while posing for camera.

Soon after Bumrah shared the image, it quickly went viral. A user said, love for the mini-reunion. A second user said two legends in one frame. A third user said want to see playing together. Others also dropped hearts and fire emojis in the comments section.

After hitting 3 sixes and an undefeated 20 off only 4 balls against MI, Dhoni made headlines. The 42-year-old took Hardik Pandya to task after coming out to bat in the final over of CSK’s innings, smacking the bowler for three straight sixes.

In response to Dhoni’s blow, Chennai scored an incredible 206 for 4. Then, after Matheesha Pathirana claimed four wickets, CSK restricted MI to 186 for 6.

Dhoni is without a doubt one of the greatest cricket players of all time, and this is evident in the manner that both current and previous players describe him.

The bowling coach for CSK Eric Simons praised Dhoni after the game for his ability to get off to a fast start.

It was remarkable that he was able to hit the first ball so hard for six and keep going. Throughout the preseason and into the tournament, he has been hitting incredibly effectively in the nets. Simons described it as just another amazing MS Dhoni moment, he said.

Meanwhile, Dhoni became the first Indian player to knock three consecutive sixes in the opening three balls of an IPL innings in addition to reaching 5000 runs for CSK.
