Team India is locking horns with Sri Lanka in the 4th ODI of the 5 match series, with India already 3-0 up in the series and have sealed the series.

India won the toss and skipper Virat Kohli chose to bat with both the team making changes as the series was decided. Despite the early loss of Shikhar Dhawan, India recovered well with the brilliants innings of Rohit Sharma (104) and Virat (131), who built a 219-run partnership as well for the second wicket.

The duo scored runs close to 8 runs per over and Sri Lanka looked helpless. Kohli got his 29th ODI century while Rohit got his 13th one and second in a row. India was marching towards a total close to 400 when Malinga scalped Kohli to complete his tally of 300 ODI wickets. Soon after that, Angelo Mathews removed Hardik Pandya and Rohit in consecutive deliveries.

India’s innings were then settled by Manish Pandey(50*) and MS Dhoni(49*) who stitched a century partnership and helped India to reach a mammoth first innings score of 375/5 in 50 overs.

However, Twitterati was amused to see a brutal display of hitting by Virat and Rohit on a pitch made for batting. Here are some intriguing tweets:
