India registers thumping win over Kiwis, play Lanka in finals

     India beat New Zealand by 105 runs in the ODI played at the Rangiri International stadium here on Wednesday with the help of Virender Sehwag's 13th ODI century and a blistering performance by the pacers to enter the tri-series final to be played against Sri Lanka on Sunday. Sehwag slammed a swashbuckling century as India recovered from early jolts to post 223 in their must-win cricket tri-series match against New Zealand Sehwag (110) notched up his 13th ODI century to give the Indian innings a respectable total after being at a precarious 66 for four at one stage on a tricky pitch here. Chasing a modest target of 224, the Kiwis were all out for 118 in 30.1 overs. India pacers Munaf Patel and Praveen Kumar claimed three wickets each in this win.
