The Indian team have by far been the most consistent team in this Champions Trophy. Not only have they won all their matches - 2 warm-up matches and 3 league games - but the manner in which they have overcome their opponents makes them the team to beat in this edition of the tournament. While India's batting has been their strong suit for quite some time now, the reason for their continued success in this edition of the Champions Trophy has much to do with their fielding, which has been top-notch and bowling, which has been tight and disciplined more often than not.
Strong performances from openers Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma have more than made up for the absence of big names such as Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir at the top of the order. Dhawan has been in the form of his life, smashing back-to-back centuries before helping himself to a quick-fire 48 against Pakistan. The mercurial Rohit, too, looks like he is finally making his presence felt in the international arena with a degree of consistency - he has scored consecutive fifties in the sub-continent side's first two matches.
Sri Lanka did not get off to the kind of start they would have hoped for, suffering an agonizing one-wicket loss at the hands of the Black Caps, despite a spirited bowling performance. The loss might have acted as a catalyst, for Sri Lanka re-grouped quickly to register back-to-back wins.
Sri Lanka's batting has revolved around the experienced trio of Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, and Tillakaratne Dilshan. The wicket-keeper batsman proved his worth, scoring a defiant 68 against New Zealand before producing a match-winning 134 against England. Mahela also showed why he is considered a key batsman in the Lankan set-up with a classy 84 against Australia. Dilshan, too, has had a few useful outings, despite not being able to make a truly big contribution thus far.
