Some of the intresting highlights between India Vs Sri Lanka

  • Both these teams had a chance to win a World Cup in the 21st century but failed against the might of a marauding Australian batsman. In 2003, Ricky Ponting plundered a century of breathtaking aggressiveness, leaving my common room in college - and common rooms everywhere in India - shell shocked. In 2007, Adam Gilchrist, with squash ball in batting glove, blitzed Sri Lanka with a century more devastating than Ponting's.
  • India has played Sri Lanka 33 times since 2008, winning 18 and losing 13.
  • Five of those 33 games were played in India, with a 3-1 record favoring the home team.
  • In all games played between the two sides since 2000, India leads 11-3.
  • Of these 14 games, 11 have been won by the team chasing.
  • Of India's 11 wins, nine have come chasing a target against what is being touted as the best defensive bowling and fielding outfit in the business.
  • However, in World Cup match ups and finals of big tournaments between the two sides Sri Lanka has won 7 and lost 2 to India.
  • In these nine games that ended in results, 7 times the team batting first has won.
  • In World Cup matches alone, the team batting first has won the last four encounters between these two sides.
