That's all we have for you from this game, and boy what a game this was and what batting from Rohit Sharma. It may have been an easy deck to score on but to score 264, something teams do not manage to score is something really special. Good luck to him and hope he can be consistent. Do join us for the final ODI between these two teams on Sunday, 16th November 2014. Until then, it's goodbye and take care!

!

ROHIT SHARMA IS ADJUDGED THE MAN OF THE MATCH. He starts off saying that it was pleasing to bat 50 overs. He has been working on batting as long as possible and is glad that the team won. Confesses that the Kohli run out was his mistake but he made up for it and did well. Adds that once he got to 100, he wanted to make it count. Jokes that he will try to get the triple but will take 264 today. Admits that this is a special place for him and will remain special.

!

Rohit Sharma receives a special award from Mr. Jagmohan Dalmiya for scoring the highest ODI score in cricket history.

!

Perera and Thirimanne did hit a few lusty blows and spoiled figures of the Indian bowlers but Kulkarni struck twice in an over to dismiss both of them. Kulkarni kept bowling good lines, picked up 4/34 and ensured they did not mess up a special day for Rohit Sharma.

!

So eventually, Rohit Sharma beats Sri Lanka by 13 runs! Such was the challenge of the chase that this innings was like watching Bangladesh bat for a draw, after watching Australia bat for a chase. Sri Lanka were chasing 405 and it was never going to be easy and they lost their top order quickly. Mathews however once again held fort for the visitors with a good fifty. Thirimanne gave him a good stand as Lanka meandered along at a slow pace. But like always Mathews missed out on his ton and that was the end of any hope Sri Lanka had to get closer to the Indian total.
