Records broken in 5th ODI between India and Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka have not secured an automatic place at the next cricket World Cup

After a historic 5-0 clean sweep over Sri Lanka, captain Virat Kohli has revealed India's 2019 World Cup plan for which he has identified a core group of 20 to 25 cricketers. The ground pitch is good and is of little grass and there is a chance of rain that interrupts play. "So from the last game in West Indies to now we've won six, that's something that we wanted to address which we did in this series".

Kohli smashed nine fours in his unbeaten knock of 110 to help India achieve the target of 239 with 21 balls to spare after Sri Lanka were shot out for 238. Jassi (Jasprit Bumrah) has been outstanding, spinners have been outstanding. We have worked on it.

Kohli now has an unbelievable average of 281 from successful ODI chases in 2017, hitting four centuries and four half-centuries in India's 10 successful chases this year.

With the Test and ODI series his bag without much sweat, Kohli now turned his focus on the upcoming limited-overs series against Australia later this month.

This was the 30th century of Kohli's ODI career.

India thrashes Sri Lanka by 168 runs in 4th ODI
India had earlier whitewashed the Sri Lankans 5-0 in an ODI series at home in 2014-15. I like to bat with somebody who loves to do that.

We look at the key talking points of India's impressive victory as Sri Lanka were whitewashed for the first time in their own backyard.

Sunday's ton puts the Indian skipper level with Aussie legend Ricky Ponting with 30 centuries each, 19 behind the Master Blaster, Sachin Tendulkar.

Kohli and Manish Pandey (36) and Jadhav joined in creating crucial partnerships which eventually sealed the match and series 5-0. We were not consistent, but only these players can get out of this. There is a one-off Twenty20 global to be played on Wednesday, and that is when the tour formally comes to a close, but a win there will not mean as much as it would in the last ODI of this series at the R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.

Sri Lanka: Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Danushka Gunathilaka, Kusal Mendis, Upul Tharanga (capt), Lahiru Thirimanne, Angelo Mathews, Milinda Siriwardana, Akila Dananjaya, Malinda Pushpakumara, Vishwa Fernando, Lasith Malinga. One more game remains - the T20I on Wednesday. Dhoni came in, soaked the pressure and, together with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, led India to victory. At one stage we were looking at 260-270.

Earlier, he was tied at 99 stumping in the 50-over format with legendary Sri Lankan keeper Kumara Sangakkara.
