    Wanindu Hasaranga to Virat Kohli. Leg spinner half volley, off stump on the front foot driving, to long off for 1 run, fielded by Fernando.

    India complete their domination of Sri Lanka. 5-0 and it is fully deserved. Buvneshwar Kumar starred with the ball, taking his first five wicket haul. Then Virat Kohli put on a show to notch up his 30th century. The visitors clearly too strong for their opponents. A real shame with the lack of competitiveness in this series. Hopefully that will change in the T20I on Wednesday.

  • 46.2

    Wanindu Hasaranga to MS Dhoni. Leg spinner back of a length, outside off stump on the back foot cutting, to cover for 1 run, fielded by Thirimanne.

  • 46.1

    OUT! Caught. Wanindu Hasaranga to Kedar Jadhav. Leg spinner length ball, outside off stump on the back foot Late Cut, outside edge to wicketkeeper, by Dickwella. That is a high quality grab by the keeper there. Jadhav tries to run it down to third man to pick up the winning runs, but gets a huge outside edge. Incredible catch from Dickwella, as the deflection was massive. All consolation though. Just two more needed.
