Kohli, Rohit flay Sri Lanka

Kohli, Rohit flay Sri Lanka

WICKETS! Angelo Mathews has turned it around for Sri Lanka in an over.

Angry fans lobbed bottles and other objects after Sri Lanka lost the third game in Pallekele to India on Sunday. He picked up his maiden scalp in the third over of Sri Lanka's chase after Niroshan Dickwella gloved a ball down the leg-side to Dhoni.

Batsman Manish Pandey, left-arm wristspinner Kuldeep Yadav and seamer Shardul Thakur may all have an opportunity in this match, with Kedar Jadhav, Yuzvendra Chahal and Bhuvneshwar Kumar the most likely to make way. MS Dhoni, prowling like a hawk behind the stumps, urged skipper Kohli to review, a decision that reaped good result. Mendis was then run out for 1, trying an improbable single after Munaweera sent him back.

On Thursday, Dhoni again showed the finisher was still relevant to the team.

Rohit initially took time to settle down as Kohli attacked the listless Sri Lankan bowling from the word go. India are now one step closer to a 5-0 whitewash. Sri Lanka Cricket has accepted their resignation.

Mathews put the brakes on the scoring when he dismissed Hardik Pandya (19) and Sharma off consecutive balls.

In the fourth ODI against Sri Lanka, MS Dhoni remained not out o 49 runs at the end of the innings.

Rohit's 88-ball knock was decorated by three sixes and 11 boundaries.

Butter-fingered Sri Lanka dropped easy catches and misfielded often to allow some easy runs to the Indians. Akshar bowled one slow through the air. Kuldeep Yadav, who was so impressive in the West Indies, may finally get a run.

Sri Lankan bowlers had a nightmarish time with pacers Lasith Malinga (1/82 in 10 overs) and Vishwa Fernando (1/76 in 8 overs) taken to task. After whitewashing in the test series, India has won the first three ODI matches. They added 219 as Rohit hit his 13th and Kohli his 29th respectively. Thirteen years later, he remains a special player and still finishes games for India. He has scored 9,608 runs at an average of 51.93. The fourth and fifth match is the experience match for both the teams.

Another explosive knock by Dhoni came against Sri Lanka in Jaipur where he scored a 183-run knock, taking India to their winning total of 300 in just 46 overs.
