India vs Sri lanka live streaming Compaq Cup 2009

India's batting had struggled over the past couple months, especially against good fast bowling, and the evidence presented tonight was a bit worrying. Dinesh Karthik went early, beaten for pace, Rahul Dravid pottered about for 14 runs in 45 balls, unsettled by Shane Bond's hostile first spell, while Yuvraj Singh's impetuosity and ineptitude against top-class spin was again exposed. Sachin Tendulkar eased back with a stroke-filled innings before he was undone by a slower ball.

At 84 for 4 there might have been the odd quiver in the Indian dressing room. Dhoni has spoken of how India didn't have a fixed batting line-up and how that had been crucial to their success as a winning unit over the past two years. That mindset was again reflected today as Dhoni pushed himself up and held back Suresh Raina. Yuvraj, sent in at No. 4, disappointed: he struggled against spin and tried to hit his way out of trouble, only to top-edge. Raina was positive - and more successful than Yuvraj - from the start and displayed some eye-catching shots either side of the track to keep runs ticking and his captain calm at one end. His unbeaten 54-ball 45 was a cool innings under pressure.
