First topic message reminder :

Before the dust ssettles on the Champion's trophy, we have yet another Tri Nations tournament involving India. West Indies hosts the tournament with Sri Lanka being the 3rd side involved.
For West Indies, this is an opportunity to jell well under the leadership of new skipper Dwayne Bravo. Ramnaresh Sarwan is dropped due to poor form, and there is no place for young seamer Jason Holder either. West Indies have retained the rest of the squad that played the CT.
As for Sri Lanka, this tournament gives further opportunities to the likes of Dinesh Chandimal, Lahiru Thirimanne and skipper Angelo Mathews to make the step up that reduce the side's real dependence on senior players like Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene. Although both were in fime form during the CT, the younger players have to make the qualitative step sooner rather than later, as Kumar and Mahela won't be around for ever. Opener and senior player Tillakaratne Dilshan is out with an injury, otherwise Lanka have also retained the rest of their CT squad.
As for India this is an opportunity to consolidate the gains from the CT. The young squad should benefit from more game time with each other. The likes of Rohit Sharma and Dinesh Karthik have the opportunity to firm up their place in the side. The slowish and lowish nature of the tracks in the West Indies should suit Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, and it presents a challenge to the quick bowlers to adapt quickly from the more friendly conditions in England, though there was no serious swing available in most of the games there. All-rounder Irfan Pathan is out with an injury, but the rest of the winning squad that played in the CT are there for this tournament.
Like most of the Tri-Nations tournament, this one is also a money spinner mostly due to India's presence, and it has come at the cost of a 2 test series between West Indies and Sri Lanka. There is no larger context to this tournament as such, but all the 3 teams have something to add to, consolidate, and improve up on.

Yes, Bhuvi survived for 3 deliveries, but not the 4th one. LBW to Malinga. India 167-8.

Vinay Kumar has one ball from Malinga to survive here, and then it'll be all up to the Indian captain. Dhoni not looking at his best, and this might just be a situation that is beyond him.

Angelo Mathews taking the challenge head on, takes over from Lakmal himself.

Looks like Lasith Malinga is hit by a bottle of water here. Not really nice that. Real nonsense.

Dhoni can't get the single of the last ball, meaning Vinay will be on strike to Maling at the beginning of the next over.

Dhoni managed to steal a leg bye to keep Vinay Kumar away from the strike, and then refused a single. Dhoni couldn't do much in the rest of the over though, and Vinay will be facing at the start of the next over again. India need another 26 of 36 balls.

Other than a couple, Vinay not managing anything in terms of runs in that over from Mathews, but importantly, he has survived. Mathews is thinking of taking off Malinga, Eranga back on.

Ishant Sharma is not much of a lower order batsman. Only Dhoni standing between Sri Lanka and the trophy.

Dhoni not taking the single to expose Ishant here. But he is unable to produce the big hit either. Dhoni takes the single of the 5th ball. Can Ishant survive? Yes Ishant does survive.

Dhoni has to score 15 of the last over. He can't be dependent on the single or even a helpful hit from the other end.

Dhoni couldn't score of the first ball. The next one was a massive 6, then a boundary, and another big 6 of the next ball finished off the deal. Terrific!.

It was a terrific win for India. But the presentation ceremony was a dampener I have to say. Trusted player award, flexible player award tallest player award, fattest player award, shortest player award!!!!. What utter nonsense!!!. And Arun Lal is not cut out for this stuff, and after all the awards, he managed to forget to call the captain to receive the trophy!!.
Anyways well done Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Team India. And well played Sri Lanka as well, really made a fine game of this with a committed effort with the ball.

True.
Arun Laal was looking apologetic at hosting the ceremony.
The pitches were a bit sub-standard......but neverthless made for exciting cricket

For India, Rohit Sharma producing some more consistency has been the significant positive besides maintaining the general momentum after the CT win. But Dinesh Karthik has emerged as a concern, and as such the likes of Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane and Manoj Tiwary do have an opportunity.
As for the West Indies, their inconsistencies continued to affect the side. Narine's and Bravo's injuries didn't help, but their batting lineup need some work, Kieron Pollard is not good enough to bat 6. Interestingly, they've dropped Denesh Ramdin for the upcoming Pakistan series and has picked Johnson Charlesas the regular keeper batsman. That should let them play Lendl Simmons, and Pollard can come in at 7 behind skipper Bravo.
For Sri Lanka, the usual problems continued. The seniors, Sangakkara, Jayawardene and Herath stepped up. Lasith Malinga didn't have the best of tournaments, but even more worryingly, the new generation batsmen couldn't deliver consistently other than skipper Angelo Mathews to some extent.

Dhoni's a freak of nature.

India without him aren't half as good.
