Lasith Malinga and Virat Kohli, the two captains. The batsman was given not-out by the on-field umpire but India chose to review the decision and TV replays showed the ball had brushed the bat.

Sri Lanka: Lasith Malinga (c), Dhananjaya de Silva, Dilshan Munaweera, Lahiru Thirimanna, Angelo Mathews, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Kusal Mendis, Milinda Siriwardana, Malinda Pushpakumara, Akila Dananjaya, Lakshan Sandakan, Thisara Perera, Wanindu Hasaranga, Dushmantha Chameera, Vishwa Fernando, Upul Tharanga (for fifth ODI).

With two dismissals back to back in the 35th over, Mathews ignited hopes for Sri Lanka and India's dream to 400 runs was shattered.

Hardik Pandya is Out with 19 runs from 18 balls. India now lead the five-match series 4-0 and look set to complete another whitewash after blanking Sri Lanka in the preceding three Tests.

Sachin Tendulkar is on top of the list with 49 hundreds.
