1st ODI: Another run riot after the historical wanderers ODI between aussies and the proteas where ponting's 164 went in vain because of amazing batting display by Herschelle Gibbs. Similarly despite of T Dilshan's 160, SL didn't managed to post a win at Rajkot trailing by 3 runs to India's 414. Sehwag made a decent 140 some thing to lead India to the 400 mark. Tendulkar and Dhoni contributed with 69 and 82 respectively.

2nd ODI: SL came back in the series by defeating India in the 2nd ODI. Dilshan in top form, smashed another blasting century. Dhoni is banned for 2 ODIs for a slow over rate offense.

3rd ODI: Dilshan being too ambitious, tried to put a 500 something on the board but failed and the team collapased from 175 for 2 to 239 all out with 9 overs spared. India chased in style with Tendulkar made a handsome 96. Hats off to R Jadeja who bagged up 4 wkts before.

4th ODI: Srilanka put a heavy 315 in style with Tharanga scoring another 50 plus score of the series, this time a century indeed. India lost Sehwag and Tendulkar with just 23 on the board, then came Kohli and Gambhir, and the Delhi duo partnered each other for a huge 224 run stand. With 247 on the board and almost completing the job, kohli departed on 107, his career best, Gambhir went on to play further and hitting the winning shot, he completed his 150 that too unbeaten.

5th ODI: Zaheer strikes with the first ball castling Tharanga's bails, with just 63 on the board and Srilanka were 5 down, the match referee and other authorities decided to abandon the match due to unfit playing conditions, Earlier Jayasuriya, Dilshan and Pushpakkumara were provided blows from the Indian bowlers.
