CB Triangular Series: SL Knock Out India, reach Final

In the last pool match of the series, powered by Pattinson, returning from injury, and boosted by hattrick from Christian, Australia bowlers restricted World Cup 2011 Runners up to a chaseable total of 238 runs, although Sanga and Chandi threatened to take the game away. Now, Indians will hope that Aussies can chase the total without getting bowled out. SL will look for favors from Australian batsmen now. And SL pulled out a thriller to reach the final and play Australia.
