That is it from the coverage of this game. Virat Kohli gets the trophy and the entire Indian team has a round in the car won by Jasprit Bumrah, with MS Dhoni behind the wheels. A complete domination from the visitors in both the Tests and ODIs. The hosts will have to sort out their plans and hope for a win in the one-off T20I which will be played at the same venue on the 6th of September at 1900 local (1330 GMT). Do join us for that. Till then, take care and cheers!
Virat Kohli starts by saying that it's always good to win the series 5-0. Praises his side for the way they stood up. Continues saying that it has been a clinical show from his side and this momentum might help them against the Aussies in their upcoming series. Loves visiting Sri Lanka and feels that the people here are really kind and something that draws his attention is the way they show hospitality. Ends by saying that he would want to come here soon.
Man of the Series, Jasprit Bumrah is delighted with the way he has bowled. Says it's his dream to play the longest format of the game. Further says he got a good rest before this series which has helped him come out with a bang. Credits Malinga by stating that he has learnt a lot from the Lankan veteran as both of them play for the same team in the Indian T20 League.
Upul Tharanga says it is a difficult phase for them. Credits India for their dominating performance in the series. Mentions they lost too many wickets early and 260-270 would have been a good score. Admits they have to improve in all the three departments. Reckons the batting was very disappointing and a lot of work has to be done. Ends by saying that injuries are a big concern for them but accepts that they were not at their best.
Man of the Match, Bhuvneshwar Kumar says he knew he was not among the wickets but is happy to get a fifer today. Admits they wanted to bowl more slower balls and that was their strategy. Reckons that there was nothing to prove, he just wanted to do well for his team.
Sir Lanka on the other hand, started off really well with Malinga and Fernando bagging a wicket each but were not supported well by the rest. The spinners could not get a lot of assistance from the wicket and hence couldn't build the pressure which allowed the Indian batsmen to run away with the game. They have a lot of soul searching to do as with each game passing by they have been handed drubbing after drubbing which for sure must have dented the team's morale. This also happens to be the first instance where the hosts have been whitewashed in their own den, an unwanted record! Stay tuned for the presentation coming up in a while...
Another stunning performance from team India has seen them end the series on a high. They have bossed the game and Virat Kohli, their captain has once again taken his side over the line with an unbeaten ton. With this hundred, he is only behind Sachin Tendulkar in the list of most hundreds in ODIs. Summary - India did lose two early wickets but Kohli decided to anchor the chase. He first with Pandey, then with Jadhav constructed two useful partnerships and ensured there were no further hiccups. In the end, the visitors gunned down the target with utmost ease.

Good running between the wickets! If Kohli is at the other end, it's ought that he'll make you run. I remember a game which happened earlier this year against England where these two were batting together. Jadhav was the Man of the Match then and he said, it's not easy to bat with Virat Kohli, he makes you run hard. Coming to the ball, around off, turning in, clipped deftly down to fine leg. Malinga gives it a chase but they run three.

Malinda Pushpakumara To Manish Pandey OUT!
OUT! A much-needed breakthrough for Sri Lanka. Pushpakumara gets Manish Pandey. Bowls it slower on middle, turning away. Pandey goes for the slog sweep as there is no one in the deep mid-wicket area. He gets a top edge as the ball is too full and it goes straight up in the air towards short mid-wicket. Upul Tharanga stationed there settles himself under it and takes it easily. The 99-run stand has been broken. An opening for Sri Lanka? They would surely hope so.

Malinda there leaps full stretch and takes it brilliantly. The umpires go upstairs to check the front foot and replays show that it is very, very close but Rohit has been given out.

Vishwa Fernando To Rohit Sharma
Tremendous effort from Pushpakumara! Again Fernando angles it on the pads, Sharma flicks it fine down the leg side. The fielder runs to his right and makes a great diving stop and saves two for his team. This is the kind of effort the Lankans need to put to defend this total.

Lasith Malinga To Rohit Sharma
BEAUTY! Good length on off, straightens and bounces a touch. Rohit feels for it but gets beaten. Dickwella behind the stumps goes up in an appeal and is the only one doing so. Umpire, Joel Wilson stays put.
Virat Kohli steps out next, replacing Rahane!

Lasith Malinga To Ajinkya Rahane OUT!
OUT! Malinga strikes! Not a good return for Rahane. This is another occasion where Rahane has got out to a short ball. Malinga bangs it in, Ajinkya goes for the pull but gets a top edge which goes down to fine leg. Munaweera stationed there sets himself under it and takes it on the third attempt. He almost dropped that but does well to hang on to it as he kept his eyes on the ball. An early wicket for Sri Lanka, just what they needed.

Vishwa Fernando To Rohit Sharma
Shorter in length on middle, Sharma tucks it towards square leg and sets off for a run. The fielder is quick to the ball and scores a direct hit at the non-striker's end but Rohit has made his ground. He was out in a similar manner in the first ODI as his bat got stuck in the ground. He has to be careful now.

NOT OUT! Sri Lanka have lost their only review in the first over. It was very close, could have gone either way. Fuller in length on middle, Rahane tries to flick but misses and is struck on the pads. The Sri Lankan players appeal and after thinking for quite a while the umpire shakes his head. After a chat with his teammates, Tharanga opts to review. Replays show that the impact is in line but it would have clipped the leg stump. The umpire's call stays. Ajinkya Rahane survives.
Sri Lanka have taken a review for lbw against Ajinkya Rahane. Looks mighty, mighty close.

Lasith Malinga To Rohit Sharma
Runs straightaway. The kind of form he is in, he won't be missing out there. Malinga bowls it shorter outside off, seeing the width on offer, Rohit punches it through cover-point for a brace. The outfield here is not that fast so the ball does not reach the fence and hence the fielder pulls it back.
We're ready to get underway for the chase. Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane will open the batting for India. Lasith Malinga will bowl the first over of this innings. He has two slips in place.
