Another bilateral series win for India and the first one for Rohit Sharma as India captain.
Team India clinched the 3-match ODI series against Sri Lanka at Visakhapatnam on Sunday after registering a thumping 8 wicket win in the series decider.
After the hosts won the toss and elected to bowl, Lankan started on a solid note, despite the early dismissal of Danushka Gunathilaka. Upul Tharanga along with Sadeera Samarawickrama continued the charge and look set for a big score before Indian bowlers bounced back.
Placed comfortably at 136-2, Thisara Perera’s men bundled out for a paltry 215 in the end as the spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal ran riot.
In the second innings, India made light work of the chase despite losing skipper Rohit Sharma early on. Shreyas Iyer and Shikhar Dhawan struck a 135-run stand to take the game away from Lanka’s hands.
