  1. Jayasuriya went first ball he faced,bowled by Praveen Kumar…India won comfortably by over 140 runs and take a winning 3-0 lead in this ODI series…Ojha took 4 wickets and Sehwag and Yuvraj one each…Yuvi won man of the Match Award,but gallantly wanted to share it with Sehwag…Terrific Performance by the Indians led by Dhoni…Tendulkar was unlucky to be adjudged LBW by Sri lankan Umpire,Gamini….Strong Rumour is that the Indian Camp has warned Batsmen not to let the ball strike their pads when Gamini is the Umpire !…even if it’s on the fifth stump,you run the risk of being given out !
