India In Clean Sweep Win Against Sri Lanka

India 390-5 (50 overs): Kohli 166*, Gill 116, Rohit 42; Rajitha 2-81

Sri Lanka 73 (22 overs): Fernando 19; Siraj 4-32

India won by 317 runs.

India was in a no-nonsense mood when they took on Sri Lanka in the final Match of their three ODI series.

They won the last Match by 317 runs – the biggest-ever winning margin in a one-day international.

The Sri Lankans proved to be no match for the well-oiled machine Indian team as they sealed the series with a 3- nil win on Sunday.

Former captain Virat Kohli finished unbeaten on 166 for the hosts, while Shubman Gill hit 116 from 97 balls as India piled up 390-5 from their 50 overs.

Sri Lanka was then bowled out for a paltry 73 after Mohammed Siraj took 4-32.

The Match could be described as a Virat Kholi show as the indomitable 34-year-old Indian batter marched to three centuries away from equaling India’s star batsman Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 49 ODI hundreds.

It was Kohli’s 10th century in one-day internationals against Sri Lanka – the most of any batter against a single opposition.

Siraj helped to reduce the visitors to 39-6 in the 12th over as Sri Lanka careered toward defeat.

Kuldeep Yadav (2-16) took two of the final four wickets to secure the record-winning margin.
