In an all important final of the Coca-Cola Champions Trophy, India suffered a humiliating loss by 245 runs against their neighbours.

Sri Lankan skipper Sanath Jayasuriya took the matters in his own hands as he destroyed the bowling of Indians single handedly. Despite the fall of wickets at the other end, Jayasuriya continued to smash the bowlers all around the park.

Russel Arnold provided a supporting knock at the other end as he reached his half-century. The big partnership was finally broken by Sourav Ganguly who took the crucial wicket of Sanath Jayasuriya as the Lankan got out for 189 runs in 161 balls. Sri Lanka put on a score of 299 and held the driver seat in the crucial final.

Chasing a challenging total, Indian batting order was ripped apart by Chaminda Vaas' swing and Muralidharan's spin. India were wrapped up for 54 runs, registering the lowest score in One day Internationals.

Sanath Jayasuriya was awarded the man of the match for his scintillating batting display in the decisive final.
