What??? Is that all OVER in the first ODI match? Mathews hits a drive past the mid-off player as Sri Lankan players celebrate the victory. It was an excellent knock from Mathews as he holds the innings after Lanka lost Tharanga for 49. Mathews 20 and Dickwella’s 26 gave a 7 wicket win to the Lankans with 29 overs in hand. After great performances by Team India in the Test series, it was time to face the Lankans in the ODIs.

India, meanwhile, has the No. 1 spot if they sweep the series, dreams were trashed by the Lankan bowlers. It was at Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium, Dharamsala where the Kohli-less Indian team was not able to hold the game against the visitors.

Following the great display of sports by Team India, Twitter had its own reactions. We bring to you some of the most hilarious post-match twitter reactions on IN Vs SLR  1st ODI:

The Indian scoreboard was looking like the seat count of Congress Party in the elections of 2014. Now that is really low a score!!! Was it Virat kohli’s absence or were the Indian players in a hurry to attend Virat’s bachelors party in Tuscany? With Indian players, surrendering to the Lankan bowlers it was M.S Dhoni once again proving that he does not need a Red Bull!

All we can say is Team India needs to buck up for the upcoming games! Wish you all the luck boys!
