Team India created history on Sunday as they beat Sri Lanka by six wickets in the fifth and final ODI to win the series 5-0. The team has now become the first ever Indian cricket team to register a clean sweep in Test (3-0) and ODI (5-0) cricket against any team in a full series. Furthermore, India has won all 8 matches played against Sri Lanka until now, where only one T-20 match remains.
Sri Lanka was all out for 238 in 49.4 overs with Lahiru Thirimanne’s 67 and Angelo Mathews’ 55 runs. However, team India’s 239 for 4 in 46.3 overs gave the hosts a tough time with skipper Virat Kohli’s 110*, Kedar Jadhav’s 63 and Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s 5/42.
