India vs Sri Lanka 2017, 3rd ODI : India seal series 2-1

 

The Rohit Sharma-led team scored an emphatic, eight-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the third and final one-dayer to clinch the three-match series 2-1 at the Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy Stadium here on Sunday.

Chasing 215, India won with 17.5 overs to spare and registered their eighth successive bilateral ODI series win.

Sri Lanka collapsed from 136 for 1 to be bowled out for 215. Shikhar Dhawan’s brilliant, unbeaten 100 helped India to its eighth consecutive bilateral series win at home since June 2016.

Shreyas Iyer joined Shikhar Dhawan in the middle and the two stepped on the gas to ensure Sri Lanka has no chance of scripting any comeback.

India will next play three T20s against Sri Lanka before embarking on a long away journey, starting with the South Africa tour.
