Young Guns to the fore

If Sri Lanka harbored any illusions that they had the match (India v Sri Lanka, 4th ODI, Kolkata) on dismissing Sehwag and Tendulkar cheaply, Kohli and Gambhir smashed it to smithereens.

They made the chase (316) appear effortless with both scoring centuries almost simultaneously.

Though Gambhir has been in the form of his life ever since his comeback, this innings will surely make his opponents look at him as an impediment to their success and henceforth factor him into their plans.

Virat Kohli impressed everyone with the way he smashed Ajantha Mendis’s carom ball to the fence when India toured Sri Lanka. Though he had nothing much to do later as he was included into the team as a filler, he had kept his promise on display by stroking some good 50’s.

With this display, they have assured the Indian cricket fans that Indian cricket, as far as batting goes is in safe hands.
