After a good T20 series,both the Indians and the Sri Lankans were geared up for the ODI clash.The 1st ODI was held at Rajkot on December 15th.
Kumar Sangakara won the toss and elected to field first.Virender Sehwag opened the batting with his idol Sachin Tendulkar.

Both Sehwag and Tendulkar were in great touch and they put up a partnership  of 153 Runs for the first wicket.
Especially Veeru was in scintillating form and he went on to make 146 Runs from just 102 balls.In his innings, he hit 17 boundaries and 6 sixes. 
The knock made by Nawab of Najafgarh helped India to score the highest total in ODI which is 414 Runs.Sri Lankans also gave a good fight but they ended up on the losing side and India won the first ODI by 3 runs.
