IND: 375/5 (50.0 Ovs), SL 207-all out (42.4 Ovs), Man of the Match: Virat Kohli
India beat Sri Lanka by 168 runs in 4th ODI in Colombo, take 4-0 lead in the series
After posting a mammoth 375/5, India bundle out Sri Lanka for 207 to register a massive 168-run win and take 4-0 lead in the five-match series.
But for Sri Lanka this is the biggest defeat (margin of runs) at home in the fifty-over format.
Virat Kohli (131), Rohit Sharma (104), Manish Pandey (50*) and MS Dhoni (49*) contributed with the bat for India, while Kuldeep Yadav, Hardik Pandya and Jasprit Bumrah returned with two wickets each.
It was a good debut for Shardul Thakur as the seamer was impressive with the new ball and bowled in the 140s.
For Sri Lanka, it was another forgettable outing with both bat and ball. Only Angelo Mathews stood out as the all-rounder returned with two wickets before contributing 70 with the bat. The focus now shifts to the final ODI which will be played on Sunday.
