India had won the final and 5th ODI by 6 wickets against the host Sri Lanka in the day and Night match in Colombo.
Sri Lanka is a cricket crazy country where they made records in their own soil against foreign nations when there were best players available. All of a sudden it came to its knees with Test match whitewash and ODI white wash by the touring Indian cricket team. To add more fire to the 5th ODI lose Srilanka is now distanced from the next World Cup qualifying too as it had lost ODI ranking.
Indian bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar made a five wickets haul as the Virat kohli’s Indian Team brought the mighty Sri Lankan cricket team to 238/10 with two balls to spear in Colombo. A 122 run partnership between Angelo Mathews and Lahiru Thirimanme for the fourth wicket seemed to be a great achievement to make a good score, but they crumbled after their stand was separated.
Upul Tharanga 48, Thirimanne 67 and Mathews 55 made good support in the batting line. Wicket Keeper MS Dhoni stumped Akila Dhananjaya, as his 100th stumping in his ODI Career. While Kohli made his 30th ODI century in this match 110*. Manish Pandey and Kohli did a 99 runs partnership. Captain Kohli hit the winning runs as India beat Sri Lanka by six wicket to sweep series 5-0 while Dhoni was on the other side.
