  • That's all that we have in our live coverage of the 5th ODI between India and Sri Lanka. Except the spell by Akila Dananjaya in the 2nd ODI at Pallekele, it had really been one-way traffic in the series. India have steamrolled the Lankans 5-0, in spite of experimenting with their side, which shows the depth in the side. It was the same story in the Test series as well. Virat Kohli and side look invincible at the moment, and they have to be the firm favourites when start the one-off T20 against the hosts on Wednesday. However, shorter the format, more are the chances of upsets. Do join us when the two teams return to the R Premadasa series for one last time on Wednesday.

    This is the first time that Sri Lanka have lost an ODI series at home by 5-0.

    Indian pacers to win Man of the Series award in an away ODI series:


    Bhuvneshwar Kumar
    JASPRIT BUMRAH* 


     

  • Bumrah gets a mini-truck as an award for being the Man of Series. And the Indian players are on a drive around the stadium on the truck and Dhoni is at the wheel. Everybody has somehow found a place to fit into. Brings back memories of the Indian team going on a drive around the ground in the Audi sedan won by Ravi Shastri when India won the World Championship of Cricket in Australia in 1985.

  • Kohli: It is quite amazing to win 5-0. I though in the shorter format the challenges would be more. There had been spuink on the field. There has been talk about not winning 3 games in a row for some time. But now we have 5. In fact, 6. Hopefully we can continue the momentum when we go back to play Australia.

  • Bumrah: It is a dream to play Tests. I will wait for my chance. Very happy to do well. It is my first time in Sri Lanka. Good to feel refreshed and coming back. It has been a long journey with Malinga. i have continued to learn from him. I want to learn and become a better bowler.

  • Tharanga: It's a very difficult time for us. We were not up to standard. India were brilliant throughout the series. We are disappointed. We lost main players.

  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar adjudged the Man nof the Match for his five-wicket haul.

  • Bhuvi: I wasn't among the wickets. I am pretty happy with way I bowled. Wanted to bowl slower balls to these batsmen as they are not strong against the slower ball. Didn't want to prove anything just wanted to go out there and express myself.

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Virat Kohli becomes the first Indian captain with three whitewashes in ODIs (In series should be of five or more matches). MS Dhoni had two such results. 

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance cricket journalist

    Test whitewash followed by ODI whitewash... You would think this is glorified match practice for India as Sri Lanka have hardly challenged. But there is also sheer dominance to consider. The other angle to look at this is that India have not given the opponents a sniff. Onto the solitary T20 on Wednesday then. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Most times scoring consecutive centuries in ODIs:


    6 - AB de Villiers
    5 - VIRAT KOHLI*
    4 - Saeed Anwar 

  • After 46.3 overs,India 239/4 ( Virat Kohli (C) 110 , MS Dhoni (W) 1)

    Hasaranga bowls what turns out to be the final over of the series. Jadhav doesn't hang around to see India through, as he gets caught behind with India needing another couple of runs to win. Dhoni walks out to bat, and we wonder if he will score the winning runs or not. He collects a single though, with Kohli getting that honour in the third delivery of the over with a single. India win by six wickets! 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    This is the second time that India have effected a whitewash in an away ODI series of five matches. The first such instance recorded in Zimbabwe against Zimbabwe in 2013.

  • After 46 overs,India 237/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 109 , Kedar Jadhav 63)

    Seven collected off the 46th over, including a boundary off Kohli's bat. India now need just two to win. Who will score the winning runs then?

  • After 45 overs,India 230/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 104 , Kedar Jadhav 61)

    Dananjaya bowls his last over, with India one big over away from a victory. The two batsmen deal in singles, four of which are collected in this over, with the second one bringing up the century-stand for the fourth wicket. India need another seven to win now. 

  • FOUR! Pulled away by Kohli towards the midwicket boundary off the second delivery of the over! India 235/3

    9 by Sachin Tendulkar v Australia
    8 by Sachin Tendulkar v Sri Lanka
    8 by Virat Kohli v Sri Lanka

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance cricket journalist

    30th hundred... equals Ricky Ponting. We are witnessing an all-time ODI great undoubtedly... the era of Virat Kohli. Just so effortless in this format. Only Sachin Tendulkar with 49 hundreds is ahead of him. Let that sink in, and if it isn't staggering enough, it is mind boggling to think what Kohli can achieve in his career to come. 

  • CENTURY NUMBER 30 FOR VIRAT KOHLI! And the Indian captain brings it up in 107 deliveries! Yet another century for him in a run-chase — 19th to be precise! And he gets to the milestone in sedate manner, with a single. He is now level with Ricky Ponting in terms of ODI centuries! 

  • After 43 overs,India 223/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 100 , Kedar Jadhav 58)

    Jadhav shuffles down the track, and hammers the ball down the ground to collect his seventh boundary. Kohli collects a single two deliveries later to bring up his 30th ODI ton! Six off the over, with India needing just 16 to complete yet another easy win! 

  • FOUR! Jadhav shuffles down the track, and hammers the ball down the ground! Less than 20 needed for India now! India 221/3

  • Dananjaya returns to the attack from the other end. 

  • Umang Pabari, Cricket statistician

    Most centuries in ODIs:

    49 - Sachin Tendulkar in 452 innings
    30 - Ricky Ponting in 365 innings
    30 - VIRAT KOHLI in 186 innings 
    28 - Sanath Jayasuriya in 433 innings

  • After 42 overs,India 217/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 99 , Kedar Jadhav 53)

    Pushpakumara bowls the 42nd over of the innings. Jadhav collects a single off the first ball, which is then followed by a wide. Four off the over, with Jadhav retaining strike for the following over. Just 26 needed by the visitors to complete a whitewash. 

  • Change of bowling, with Siriwardana replacing Pushpakumara in the attack. 

  • After 41 overs,India 213/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 98 , Kedar Jadhav 51)

    Malinga bowls his eighth over. Jadhav brings up his half-century in the third delivery of the over, crossing the milestone for the second time in ODIs. Four off the over, with Kohli just two runs away from his century at the end of the over.

  • Chetan Narula, Freelance cricket journalist

    50 for Kedar Jadhav... very timely knock. Makes the experimentation work and more importantly has probably saved his ODI spot for the Australia series. 

  • FIFTY for Kedar Jadhav, and he brings up the milestone in 52 deliveries! His second half-century in ODIs, having registered two centuries alongside it. India 211/3

  • After 40 overs,India 209/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 96 , Kedar Jadhav 49)

    Pushpakumara continues from the other end, bowling the last over of the second powerplay. Three singles collected off the last three deliveries of the over, with Jadhav batting on 49 at the end of it. Kohli is now one hit to the fence away from his 30th ODI century. 

  • After 39 overs,India 206/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 94 , Kedar Jadhav 48)

    Malinga starts his seventh over off with a wide, bringing up the 200 for India. Jadhav flicks the fourth delivery of the over towards the square-leg fence, with a two fielders in the deep failing to prevent the ball from kissing the cushion. Seven off the over. 

  • FOUR! Flicked away towards long-leg by Jadhav off Malinga, with two fielders in the deep failing to prevent the boundary! India 206/3

  • FOUR! Swept away by Jadhav towards the square-leg boundary in the penultimate delivery of the 38th over, moving to 42 in the process! India 198/3

  • 1000 runs complete for Virat Kohli in 2017 at an outstanding average of 90.91! Collects a single in the second delivery of the 38th over to bring up the milestone! India 194/3

  • After 38 overs,India 199/3 ( Virat Kohli (C) 93 , Kedar Jadhav 43)

    Kohli collects a single off the second delivery of the 38th over to complete 1,000 runs in the year. Jadhav smacks the penultimate delivery of the over towards the square-leg fence, before retaining strike for the following over with a single. Six off the over.

INDIA WHITEWASH SRI LANKA 5-0! Kohli it is who scores the winning run, collecting a single in the third delivery of the 47th over! This is the first-ever whitewash suffered by Sri Lanka on home soil! India 239/4

Preview: High on confidence after taking an unassailable 4-0 lead, a dominant India will look to complete a whitewash of Sri Lanka when the two teams face off in the fifth and final One-day International (ODI) at the R. Premadasa International Cricket Stadium on Sunday.

India had earlier achieved this feat, thrashing Sri Lanka 5-0, at home in 2014-15.

The visitors rode on blistering centuries from skipper Virat Kohli and his deputy Rohit Sharma to thrash Sri Lanka by 168 runs in the fourth ODI and will once again bank on their batting prowess to decimate the hosts.

Former India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who shared an unbeaten 101-run stand with young gun Manish Pandey, is once again expected to add to the fireworks lower down the order against a toothless Lankan attack.

With the series already in their kitty, Kohli might opt to make a few changes in the playing XI and rest opener Shikhar Dhawan or Lokesh Rahul to accommodate Ajinkya Rahane, who has been warming the bench throughout the series.

In the bowling department, pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Shardul Thakur, along with the young left-arm spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel, will once again aim to shatter the inexperienced home batting line-up.

Sri Lanka, in a transition phase, will expect their young guns to give it back to the visitors in the final ODI if they are to escape another humiliating whitewash.

Lasith Malinga conceded that he will assess his future after the current series against India. The 34-year-old pacer has looked a shadow of his former self throughout the series.

The hosts will also bank on the experience of former skipper Angelo Mathews and Kusal Mendis, besides young Niroshan Dickwella, who has failed to convert his promising starts in the series.

Young spinner Akila Dananjaya is also expected to play a key role in the bowling department alongside the likes of Vishwa Fernando and Lakshan Sandakan.

Squads:

India: Virat Kohli (Captain), Mahendra Singh Dhoni (WK), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Manish Pandey, Kuldeep Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Lokesh Rahul, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Ajinkya Rahane, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kedar Jadhav, Yuzvendra Chahal.

Sri Lanka: Upul Tharanga (Captain), Lasith Malinga , Angelo Mathews, Lahiru Thirimanne, Niroshan Dickwella (WK), Milinda Siriwardana, Vishwa Fernando, Dilshan Munaweera, Malinda Pushpakumara, Akila Dananjaya, Kusal Mendis, Wanidu Hasaranga, Thisara Perera, Dhananjaya de Silva, Danushka Gunathilaka, Dushmantha Chameera, Lakshan Sandakan.
