India's cricket team has defeated visiting Sri Lanka by four wickets in the fourth one-day international played in Pune.
The victory gives the hosts an unbeatable 4-0 lead in the seven-match series. Chasing Sri Lanka's 261, India slumped to 180-for-6 before the seventh-wicket pair of Mahendra Dhoni and Suresh Raina steered the hosts home with an unbroken 82-run partnership. Dhoni, India's new one-day wonder who smashed an unbeaten 183 in the previous match at Jaipur on Monday, sealed the impressive win on Thursday in the 46th over with two consecutive sixes off Russel Arnold. Indian paceman Ajit Agarkar was named man of the match for taking five wickets for 44.
This was India's first one-day series win on home soil since beating Zimbabwe 3-2 in March 2002.
The final three one-day matches against Sri Lanka are set for Ahmedabad on Sunday, Rajkot on November 9 and Baroda on November 12.
