As Sri Lanka thumps India in Champions Trophy, we take a look at some of the most interesting facts about the fixture


  1. 1

    sportskeeda
    India posted its lowest ever total against Sri Lanka at Sharjah in 2000. It was an embarrassing total of 54 in which Chaminda Vaas ran riot taking 5 wickets for 14 runs. Sri Lanks won the match by record 245 runs.
  2. 2

    espncricinfo
    Openers have always done wonders when it comes to this particular fixture. Sehwag, Dilshan, Jayasuriya, Sachin, Gambhir and in the more recent times Upul Tharanga, Dhawan and others have heaved their bats tremendously and accrued countless runs.
  3. 3

    sportswallah
    And Batsmen not just score mere centuries but go on to put mammoth totals. Whether it's Sanath Jayasuriya's huge 189 runs tally or Dhoni's 183 not out at Jaipur, the fixture has seen some of the biggest individual performances from both sides. And who can forget the historic 2nd wicket partnership between Saurav Ganguly(183) and Rahul Dravid(145) in 1999 world cup match against a hapless Lankan bowling attack.
  4. 4

    The latest champions trophy meeting between the two Asian giants was 150th. No two teams have faced each other so many times in the history of the game. The love affair between the two can be envied by many.
  5. 5

    espncricinfo
    The little master has scored the most number of hundreds(8) when it comes to India vs Srilanka matches. He is the only batsman to score more than 3000 runs in this fixture.
  6. 6

    The Indian Express
    Currently, Rohit Sharma holds the record for most number of ducks as he shares the overall 2nd spot with Kaluwitharana. Both have 5 ducks to their name so far second only to Sanath Jayasuriya's tally of 7.
  7. 7

    NewsIn.Asia
    With the most number of wickets(74) and best bowling figure(7 for 30) both to his name, Muralitharan stands taller than any other bowler.
  8. 8

    Sangakkara or M.S. Dhoni? Who do you think outshines the other when it comes to facing each other? We are all aware of the legacy of the Sri Lankan and remember his batting prowess. But when it comes to wicket keeping it's Dhoni who trumps Sangakkara by dismissing more batsmen in less number of matches. Dhoni has dismissed 78 Lankan Batsmen in 68 matches while Sangakkara sits at number two position with 75 dismissals in 76 matches.
