With a capacity of 45,000, the Wankhede Stadium is one of the best venues in India. Sachin Tendulkar is the highest run-scorer at the venue with his 437 runs in 10 matches and will be looking for his 100th international ton in front of his home crowd. The cricket pundits consider this match as the best opportunity for the Master Blaster to reach this mile-stone.

The two teams have played against each other in a couple One Day Internationals at Wankhede Stadium and each team has one victory to their credit. Moreover, the Sri Lankan Lions have defeated New Zealand in their group match at the same venue.
With a batting-friendly wicket at the venue, the spectators will see an entertaining show on Saturday and a total of 270-280 is likely to be put up by team batting first. Sri Lanka and India have met each other in 128 ODI’s since 1979 and the Men in Blue lead by 67-50. In the World Cup head-to-head contest, Sri Lanka has thrashed India in four out of six matches.

Tendulkar is the highest run-scorer in the ODI games played between the two sides, as he needs just 35 runs to complete his 3000 mark against Sri Lanka. Kumar Sangakkara, on the other hand, is just 54 short of his 2000 runs against India. India's total of 414 in an ODI match at Rajkot in 2009, is the highest score put up in any ODI game between the two Asian giants and interestingly India won that game by just three runs.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni is the only wicket-keeper Captain in the World who has led his side in more than 100 ODIs. Dhoni needs 42 runs to complete his 6000 ODI runs while Gautam Gambhir is 24 runs short of his 4000 mark in ODI cricket. Another innings of 81 runs from Virat Kohli’s bat will enable him to reach his 2000 mark in ODI cricket. Zaheer Khan, India's most successful bowler in the tournament with 19 scalps, is the second Indian highest wicket-taker in World Cup tournaments with 42 dismissals after Javagal Srinath with 44 wickets.

Tillakaratne Dilshan is leading the chart of highest run-scorers in the tournament with his 467 runs followed by Tendulkar’s 464. The highest Sri Lankan wicket-taker against India with his 74 dismissals, Muttiah Muralitharan will play the last match of his career. Furthermore, Tendulkar will participate in his last World Cup match and interestingly, both players are Master of the Game, as Tendulkar is the highest run-scorer in ODIs with 18093 runs and Muralitharan is the highest wicket-taker in ODIs with 534 scalps. It will definitely be a farewell to cherish.

DDA Flats DRAW

The Indian team is playing this game with a tag of favourites due to their home advantage whereas the Sri Lankan Lions are looking to not repeat the history of the 2007 World Cup final where they lost to Australia. Both teams are evenly matched, but Sri Lanka has a slight edge over India in the bowling department. No prediction, anyone can win this game, however, the team with stronger nerves will have better chances in the all-important final clash of the ICC World Cup 2011.

Gambhir holds firm for India, Dhoni is in



Tillakaratne Dilshan broke the 83-run fourth-wicket stand between Gautam Gambhir and Virat Kohli when he had Kohli caught and bowled for 35.

Dilshan brought an end to a partnership that threatened to take the game away from Sri Lanka as the men in blue move forward in pursuit of 275 for World Cup glory.

This was after Gautam Gambhir rustled up a determined 25th one-day international half-century,  bringing up his fifty with a single off Muttiah Muralitharan off 56 balls, studded with six hits to the fence.

Gambhir is joined by captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni at the wicket.

Gambhir and Kohli repaired the Indian innings after Lasith Malinga dislodged Virender Sehwag and Sachin Tendulkar early to put Sri Lanka in a strong position.

The pair did not take any undue risks, and kept the scoreboard ticking over with some sensible batting - raising a half-century stand - a much required one for India after the early slump.

Gambhir launched his innings on a confident note, whipping Malinga to the square-leg boundary. He twice stepped out to Thisara Perera and clobbered him for two boundaries to give impetus to the innings.

Kohli took his time to get his eye in and gave the Wankhede crowd something to rejoice about when he flicked one to the on-side for a morale-boosting boundary.

Earlier, Malinga dealt a big blow in the first over when he pinned Virender Sehwag lbw for a duck.

The Sri Lankan speed merchant then claimed the prized wicket of Sachin Tendulkar to put the men in blue in a spot of bother. Tendulkar pushed at an away going delivery and was pouched by wicketkeeper Kumar Sangakkara for 18.

The maestro promised much, middling the ball from ball one. He picked two boundaries of Nuwan Kulasekera in the fourth over – a straight drive was a treat and he followed it up with a scorching cut past the point.

Earlier, Sri Lanka rode on a fighting unbeaten century by Mahela Jayawardene to post a score of 274 for 6 in its allotted 50 overs.

Brief Scores: Sri Lanka 274 for 6 (Mahela Jayawardene 103*, Kumar Sangakkara 48, Tillakaratne Dilshan 33, Nuwan Kulasekara 32; Yuvraj Singh 2 for 49, Zaheer Khan 2 for 60) vs India 124 for 3 in 25 overs (Gautam Gambhir 60*, Virat Kohli 35; Lasith Malinga 2 for 11).
