Angelo Mathews: Sri Lanka Looking to Sign off With a Win

None of Sri Lanka's four half-centuries in the series have come at quicker than a run-a-ball. We always thought the limited overs were going to be much more challenging but credit to the guys. The ground pitch is good and is of little grass and there is a chance of rain that interrupts play. "All round, it's been a complete series for us", said Kohli.

Kohli praised the people and environment of Sri Lanka and said that they would definitely like to visit Sri Lanka again. Dhoni has done the same in the third and fourth match and it is telling that he has remained unbeaten in all three occasions. Jassi (Jasprit Bumrah) has been outstanding, spinners have been outstanding.

"We lacked consistency. We didn't bat, bowl or field well". India did attempt some middle-order experiments playing Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandey and KL Rahul in the series - Jadhav and Pandey hitting one fifty apiece. In the last ODI, Mahendra Singh Dhoni joined a select group of Indian players to have represented India in 300 one-day internationals.

2 - This was the India captain's 8th ODI century against Sri Lanka, the most by any batsman against Sri Lanka (on par with Sachin Tendulkar's 8 tons).

After being rested for the West Indies, Rohit continued from where he left off in the Champions Trophy and showed that while he may not have a great record in Sri Lanka, that was just a quirk of the record books as he showed just why he is one of the best limited-pvers openers in the world now.

5 - Kohli's 30th ODI ton was his 19th century overseas, equalling with former India skipper Sourav Ganguly for the second highest number of centuries scored by Indians away from home.

The 36-year old reached the milestone by stumping Akila Dananjaya off Yuzvendra Chahal on the last ball of the 45th over in the fifth and the final ODI against Sri Lanka in Colombo.

As Indian cricket fans, we hope the purple patch continues for team India as they have a long season coming up.

The two teams will meet in the fifth ODI at the Premadasa Stadium in Colombo later on Sunday, before playing a Twenty20 worldwide on Wednesday at the same venue. In fact, 6. We won one in West Indies as well. India takes the Lead 4-0 in this Five match ODI series.
