India win toss, bat against Sri Lanka

India win toss, bat against Sri Lanka

Today's match will surely affect the Sri Lanks if they Loses or If they Win the game, they need to crack 5th Series also. Virat Kohli has continued his onslaught and Rohit Sharma is cashing in on every opportunity to hit big as India continue to hammer Sri Lankan bowlers.

He also shared 101 runs with Manish Pandey (50 not out) after the visitors were reduced to 274-5.

Earlier, Kohli joined Sharma at the crease on 6-1 after India opener Shikhar Dhawan (4) was caught in the deep off Vishwa Fernando's bowling. These are not good signs for Sri Lanka, who have been on the receiving end of one of the great limited-overs onslaughts at Rohit's hands.

What will be Carlos Brathwaite's Strike Rate? India made 356 runs in that match and won by 58 runs.

Sri Lankan team has showcased poor performance in this series of matches. The fifth and final ODI will be played in Colombo on Sunday. Kuldeep Yadav cleaned up the tail in the 43rd over as India romped home in style.

If SriLanka wants to survive in the last two games, they will have to play a lot and better cricket. This made their Test Cricket Ranking to a grade up post the Ind v West Indies Cricket and match went off.

India vs Sri Lanka fourth ODI match out of five is scheduled on August 31st at R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo. South Africa, Sri Lanka, Australia and New Zealand all have two players on this list while all-rounder Abdul Razzaq is the only Pakistan player in the top ten. If Gunathilake fails to prove his fitness in this game, he will be replaced by either Dilshan Munaweera or Dhananjaya De Silva. They also have Thisara Perera and Wanindu Hasaranga on the bench.

In a small yet poignant function here before the start of the fourth ODI on Thursday, Dhoni, for whom this was the 300th 50-over match, was presented with a platinum-gilded bat to mark the occasion. While his recent form with the bat has been under the radar of the selectors, Dhoni has answered his critics with two consecutive match-winning knocks in the second and third ODI at Pallekele.

This was also their third 200-plus stand as a pair equalling the record held jointly by Sachin Tendulkar and Ganguly, as well as Gautam Gambhir and Kohli.
