Hobart: Sent
into bat, Sri Lanka scored a huge 320 for the loss of four wickets against
India in the penultimate one-dayer of the cricket tri-series here today.

Tillakaratne
Dilshan remained unbeaten on 160, while Kumara Sangakkara got out after
scoring 105 off just 87 balls.

The mammoth score could fade
India's hopes of winning the match with a bonus point and stay afloat in
the tri-series.

Earlier, India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni won
the toss and elected to field against Sri Lanka in a do-or-die match of
the cricket tri-series at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart on Tuesday.

India
has made one change in their playing eleven with Irfan Pathan missing out
due to his injury and Zaheer Khan making a comeback.

The Sri
Lankans have gone with an unchanged side.

Teams:

India:
Mahendra Singh Dhoni (capt), Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Gautam
Gambhir, Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Ravinder Jadeja, Ravi Ashwin, Umesh
Yadav, Praveen Kumar and Zaheer Khan.

Jayawardene (capt), Tillakaratne Dilshan, Dinesh Chandimal, Kumar
