India must win next two games to reach tri-series final

India have to win their next two games if they are to reach the finals of the cricket tri-series involving Australia and Sri Lanka.

India play Australia in Sydney on Sunday while they meet Sri Lanka in Hobart on Tuesday. India are at the bottom of the table with 10 points, one point behind Sri Lanka, who are three points behind the Australian team.

Indian team has failed to register a victory after they beat Australia in the fourth match at Adelaide by four wickets. They tied with Sri Lanka in the next match and since then have been beaten comprehensively by both their opponents.

India lost to Sri Lanka by 51 runs on Tuesday.

India will need to win both the games to be sure of a place in the finals while if they lose to Australia, they would have to rely on Sri Lanka losing the rest of their three matches.
