Team India is in a jovial mood now after winning back to back matches. After a whitewash in test series, India clinched the ODI series by 5-0. A lot of surprises came in the match. With MS Dhoni making a history by taking 100 stumpings and Vira Kohli becoming the second highest batsman to score 30 ODI tons. But the best moment was when Dhoni, with the all the other players of the team was seen driving through the entire R Premadasa Stadium after securing victory in the 5th and final ODI.
Not anything new as earlier when Dhoni was team India skipper he was seen riding bikes with team mates. This time too he was the driver!

The hosts were going steady at 185-4, with Angelo Mathews and Lahiru Thirimanne notching up half-centuries, but they collapsed in the final 11 overs as they lost six wickets for 53 runs. Thanks to Bhuvneswar Kumar’s five wicket spell.
Dhoni meanwhile went past Sangakarra creating a history by coming up with his 100th stumping in the match. Team India looks all set for future challenges and the skipper confirmed that he would keep his experiment on as the aim remains to be 2019 World Cup! As for the Lankans, things got worse as they failed to fix a spot for the World Cup 2019 qualification.
Skipper Upul Tharanga said that the team lacks spirit and consistency. They should have more positive outlook. India will next face the Lankans on Wednesday in a T20I on the same venue before flying off to India to face Australia.
