India lock horns with Sri Lanka in the fifth match of the Commonwealth Bank ODI series in Adelaide on Tuesday. The Indian's are fresh from a thrilling last over victory against Australia and will hope to continue their recent form reversal with a victory over the winless Sri Lankans.

Indian skipper MS Dhoni  has been an inspiration all summer, which was once again reinstated with a starring performance with the bat on Sunday, leading his side to victory with a score of 44 not out. India’s chase was anchored by Gautam Gambhir’s astute 92, before Dhoni and Raina took the Indians within striking range in undoubtedly their best performance of the tour.

Sri Lanka’s hope will rest heavily on star batsman Kumar Sangakkara  who is yet to make his mark on the series so far. Firebrand fast bowler Lasith Malinga  will also need to improve considerably if the Sri Lankan’s are any chance of competing with the vastly improved Indians.
