Virat hits 30th ODI century as India sweep another series against Sri Lanka

virat-kohli

Virat Kohli hit his second century in a row as India thrashed Sri Lanka by six wickets in the fifth one-day international Sunday to inflict a humiliating 5-0 series defeat on the beleaguered hosts.

Kohli smashed nine fours in his unbeaten 110-run knock to help the visitors achieve the target of 239 with 21 balls to spare at the R. Premadasa stadium in Colombo.

The Men in Blue became the first visiting country to whitewash a five-match ODI series 5-0 in Sri Lanka. Before this India had also beaten the Lankans 3-0 in the three-Test match series. Courtesy Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s five-wicket haul, India bundled out the hosts for a modest 238 runs in 49.4 overs. In reply, Kohli notched up his 30th ODI century to help India get over the line in just 46.3 overs.

This was India’s second 5-0 whitewash in an away ODI series with Kohli’s men having blanked Zimbabwe in 2013.

Sri Lanka squandered the opportunity to salvage some pride, folding up for a below-par 238 in 49.4 overs after paceman Bhuvneshwar Kumar grabbed a career-best 5-42.

The Indians had a shaky start but Kohli anchored the innings with a 99-run partnership with Manish Pandey (36) for the third wicket.
