Nothing is going perfectly for the Lankans. A whitewash in test and three back to back ODI loss against India after Zimbabwe upset must have been too much for the neighbors. Who knew the fourth ODI would bring more blows?

The biggest defeat in ODI’s for Sri Lanka came in Colombo.  Sri Lanka’s chances of direct qualification into 2019 World Cup keeps getting grim with each passing game. India, on the other hand, had a cheese cake win by 168 runs.

Rohit and Virat gave a clinical performance as their 200 run partnership made India go par the highest ODI run scorer. Virat got his 29th century and Rohit became only Indian player to hit successive 100s in ODIs. What could have been better?

Yes, MS Dhoni playing his 300th ODI yet made another 49* and was consistent, just missing his 100th ODI 50 by one run. On another hand, Pandey scored a 50 too and played clinical innings.

Bowlers did well to bowl out the Lankans by Bumrah and Yadav roping in 2 wickets each.

Let’s have a look at the twitter reactions:
