Besides, on 3 September 2017 Indian cricket team led by Captain Virat Kohli also won the five-match ODI series against Sri Lanka, 5-0. India are likely to walk away with the T20 trophy, having maintained a 100 percent win record in their tour of Sri Lanka so far.

With 8587 runs and 30 centuries after 194 games, Kohli holds a significant advantage over Tendulkar at the same stage of his career.

NewDelhi: Team India skipper Virat Kohli smashed record books with his sublime run of form and became only the third batsman in the world to score 30 ODI tons after Sachin Tendulkar and Ricky Ponting.

The India skipper mentioned that it is an honour to be in the same bracket as that of Ponting.

Kedar Jadhav made 63 for his second one-day half-century and shared a 109-run stand for the fourth wicket with Kohli before getting out just two runs from victory. He broke Kumar Sangakkara's record of 99 stumpings during the fifth ODI played at Colombo (RPS). "We didn't win three games in the shorter format before this, and now we have six in a row including the West Indies series". "We wanted to be relentless, we wanted to create good habits", Kohli said of his team's approach to the series.

There were a few flashes of promise if Sri Lanka want to dig out anything positive from this series. In total, India would play nine T20 Internationals this home season and all contests will be a three-match series.

Sri Lanka captain Upul Tharanga said that his team had failed in every department in the series and none of the plans were executed well. "We've got a lot to improve".

India is now the first team to whitewash Sri Lanka in Sri Lanka.

Once Mathews was gone, Sri Lanka completely collapsed as they went from 194/5 to being bowled out for 238. A decision that backfired with Kumar (5-42) dismissing Niroshan Dickwella (2) and Dilshan Munaweera (4) early.

India would aim to cap off their super successful Sri Lanka tour with another ruthless victory in the one-off T20 worldwide here tomorrow. But soon, while trying to hit the boundaries, the duo fell in the 35th over to Angelo Mathews with scoreboard reading 262/4. However, Lahiru Thirimane (67) and Angelo Mathews (55) steadied the innings and they took the hosts on course of a big first-inning score.

53 - Runs for which Sri Lanka lost their last seven wickets, in 11 overs.

Yuzvendra Chahal snared 5 while Kuldeep Yadav took 3 in the last 2 matches that he played but Kohli understands the weightage of wrist spinners and how they prove to be an attacking option always.
