Meanwhile, Sri Lanka captain Shashikala Siriwardene was on seventh heaven receiving congratulatory messages from well wishers including President Mahinda Rajapaksa.
"I can't believe it, it's dream come true for us. We finished eighth in the last world cup. I got a call from my home. The people are excited over there. This is the second match they have seen live. Everything is changing for us," she said.
On the President's message, she said, "He said he has not seen a match like this for the first time. He is very happy for us. He just wanted to congratulate us. We are happy for this victory and good luck for the rest."
In their 18 meetings, India have lost to Sri Lanka for the first time having won the previous 16 times with one being a no result.
The island nation has made it to the super six for the first time and Siriwardene said the team hopes to put up a good show.
"This is the first time we are coming to super six, so we are hoping to do well," she said.
The 27-year old said that this could well be her last World Cup appearance.
