Shikhar Dhawan led from the front, scoring an almost effortless century. Sri Lanka’s collapse pretty much cost them the match as India never looked in trouble throughout their chase. The win also marked India’s eighth successive series victory in 50-over cricket.

Riding on Shreyas Iyer and Shikhar Dhawan, India outclassed the Lankans. Sri Lanka was all out for 215 runs after put into bat by India. Sri Lanka was cruising to a big total but their middle-order yet again disappointed them.

Upul Tharanga and Sadeera Samarawickrama put in a valiant partnership but it all went in vain. As soon as both departed, the other batsmen fell like a pack of cards. India's spinning duo Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal shared 3 wickets each to derail Sri Lanka's chances in the match.
