Live reporting: India won by 3 wickets, whitewashed Sri Lanka 5-0

India were off to a shaky start though as Mathews struck twice in two overs, reducing them to 288. Ambati Rayudu and Virat Kohli then combined well in a superb 136-run stand to perk up India. Both started off slowly before gradually shifting gears. Against the run of play though Rayudu fell run-out with Kohli guilty of ball watching.

The jitters multiplied after Mendis nipped out Robbie, Jadhav, Binny and Ashwin in quick succession. Despite that, Kohli, showing no sigs of panic, guided India home with some lusty hits. Axar did well to hang around with his captain.

However, Mathews' 139 was just not enough to help Sri Lanka avert an embarrasing whitewash.
