Hosts India not only won the last game of the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka to complete a whitewash, but they also created a new history in ODI cricket with the largest ODI win.

Before this ODI match at Thiruvananthapuram, the fate of this series was already decided as the hosts had an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. Indian captain Rohit Sharma won the toss in the last game of the series and decided to bat first.


India vs Sri Lanka: India – 390/5; Sri Lanka – 73; India won by 317 runs

Skipper Rohit Sharma provided a solid start with his opening batting partner Shubman Gill as they had a strong 95-run partnership for the first wicket. Rohit was dismissed after scoring 42 runs off 49 balls, but the momentum remained, thanks to Gill and Virat Kohli’s strong second-wicket partnership.

Before Gill was out on 116 runs off 97 balls (14 fours and two sixes), the young opener and Kohli set up the 131 runs partnership for the second wicket. However, in-form Kohli continued his batting dominance to complete his 46th ODI century in 85 balls and stretched his innings to 166 not out off 110 balls (13 fours and eight sixes) to guide the hosts for a mammoth total.

Also, Shreyas Iyer scored 38 runs as India finished the 50-overs innings on 390/5.

In reply, Sri Lanka were bundled out for 73 runs (22 overs), their lowest completed ODI total against India. The Indian pacer Mohammed Siraj bagged four wickets in that innings as he ended with the bowling figures of 10-1-32-4. Also, Mohammed Shami (2/20) and Kuldeep Yadav (2/16) scalped two wickets each. 

So, India won the match by a record-breaking 317 runs and finished the series with a 3-0 scoreline.
