India aim to whitewash Sri Lanka in final ODI

Angelo Mathews: Sri Lanka Looking to Sign off With a Win
He reached the hundred mark after he stumped Akila Dananjaya in the last ball of the 45th over in India'sfifth and final ODI against Sri Lanka in Colombo. We always thought the limited overs were going to be much more challenging but credit to the guys. We achieved those targets in the Zimbabwe series.
Earlier, Bhuvneshwar picked up a brilliant five-for as India bundled out Sri Lanka to 238.
It was only fitting that the skipper hit the winning runs to remain unbeaten on 110.
Meanwhile, Man of the Series JaspritBumrah expressed his happiness with his performance and improvement following every game. We have worked on it.
Shikhar Dhawan leaving the tour to attend to his sic mother and the game meant that Ajinkya Rahane, who hasn't played an ODI in the series yet, can get the chance. He was involved in a 108-run partnership with Kedar Jadhav, who scored 63 runs off 73 balls before being caught behind off Wanidu Hasaranga's bowling a couple of balls before the end. Almost half the number of runs he has scored in his ODI career have come in successful run chases, with 17 of his 30 ODI centuries helping him in that endeavour. It really helped us get those crucial wickets in the middle overs, and at the same time, helped us control the run rate as well.
Sri Lanka needed to win at least two ODIs in the ongoing series for direct qualification and now need favourable results in the series involving West Indies, Ireland and England to know their fate.
Virat's 30th century has now left him level with Ricky Ponting with only Sachin Tendulkar (49) ahead in the all-time ODI list.
Earlier, Kumar made the most of the conditions, reducing Sri Lanka to 40-2 before Lahiru Thirimanne (67) and Angelo Mathews stitched together a 122-run stand for the fourth wicket to steady the innings. For the meantime, there have been some speculations about Kusal Mendis's workload and if he will be taking rest then it will be making way for Tharanga.
