India's Dhawan to miss final Sri Lanka ODI

Sri Lanka win toss, elect to bat

Virat Kohli hit his second century in a row as India thrashed Sri Lanka by six wickets in the fifth one-day global Sunday to inflict a humiliating 5-0 series defeat on the beleaguered hosts. Sri Lanka surprised a few with their decision to bat first again.

Earlier, Bhuvneshwar picked up a brilliant five-for as India bundled out Sri Lanka to 238.

Pressure pays off, Munaweera 4 (5) departs; an easy catch for Virat Kohli at short mid-off. Sri Lankan batting once again promised a lot but delivered too little losing as many as seven wickets for 53 runs after they were cruising along at 185 for 3. Jasprit Bumrah then struck in the final over of the first powerplay to dismiss Tharanga and robbed of his opportunity to notch up a fifty.

The India skipper was already the highest ODI run-getter for 2017 going into the match.

Thirimanne made 67 for his 18th ODI half-century off 102 deliveries including three boundaries and a six.

So far, they have not been successful in their attempts, and a large part of those failed tries have come about because of how clinical their opponents have been.

With the five-match ODI series already in their kitty and only two matches to go (including the lone T20 worldwide on Wednesday), the BCCI decided against naming a replacement for Dhawan.

First, Kumar bowled Thirimanne in the 39th over, and then in the 42nd over, Mathews attacked Kuldeep Yadav (1-40) only to lob the ball back to MS Dhoni after mishitting it.

Dhoni reached to the historic landmark when he removed Akila Dananjaya's bails and stumped him off the bowling of Yuzvendra Chahal in the 45th over of the Lankan innings.

The only interesting events were from India's side as MS Dhoni completed his record 100th ODI stumping and Bhuvneshwar Kumar taking his maiden five-wicket haul in ODIs. With 63 runs on the board and three wickets down, fans had expected another day of disappointing performance.
