India Clinch ODI Series With Third Straight Win Over Sri Lanka

Team Republic |

Swashbuckling Indian opener Rohit Sharma scored a brilliant hundred as India won the third ODI comfortably by six wickets, thereby clinching the five-match series at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Kandy on Sunday.

Chasing a paltry score of 218, India recovered from early hiccups, thanks to a brilliant partnership between Rohit (124) and Mahendra Singh Dhoni (67) to help the Men in Blue cross the line with ease.

Security forces were called in between the match when India were 210 for four after 44 overs, to clear the spectators from some of the sections in the gallery after Sri Lankan supporters resorted to throwing bottles into the field of play.
