India clean sweeps ODI series against Sri Lanka with 317-run massive win in third match


India defeated Sri Lanka on Sunday by 317 runs in the third ODI to clinch the ODI series 3-1 against the Asian Champions. The ODI win came after the Hardik Pandya-led young Indian team defeated the Sri Lankans in the T20 series 2-1 earlier this year.

Virat Kohli knocked off the Sri Lankan bowlers and inched closer to some of the best records in the world of cricket. Kohli contributed massive 166 runs off 110 balls and combined with another century by Shubhman Gill, the final score of India reached 390/5.

Sri Lankan batsman suffered from the first balls against Indian pacers with Mohammad Siraj taking 4 wickets in the game. The highest run a Sri Lankan batsman could manage was only 19 which came from Nuwanidu Fernando. Even the big-ticket players failed miserably to contribute anything to the team.

The opening partnership of the team again went well with Rohit Sharma playing an inning of 42 runs while Gill made a whopping 116.

The victory in both T20 and ODI series against the Asian giants will be a big booster for the Indian cricket team before the Cricket World Cup 2023.
