Virat Kohli notched up his 30th ODI century as India put on a dominant show to crush Sri Lanka by six wickets and sweep series 5-0 on Sunday. Kohli, who got to his hundred off 107 balls, is now the joint second century scorer along with former Australian skipper Ricky Ponting. India lost both the openers, Rohit Sharma and Ajinkya Rahane, early in run chase. However, the visitors got back on track in the run chase as Manish Pandey and Kohli added 99 runs for the third wicket before the former departed for 36. Thereafter, Kohli and Kedar Jadhav (63) stitched a 109-run partnership to take India closer to victory. For Sri Lanka, Pushpakumara was the most economical bowler who returned with figures of 1 for 40. (SCORECARD)

14:03 IST: Hello and welcome to the live blog of the final ODI between India and Sri Lanka.
Their fortunes haven't changed much since and another loss would be a serious body blow for the hosts in what has been a traumatic summer of cricket. They have already foregone the opportunity to automatically qualify for the 2019 ODI World Cup by failing to win two matches in this series.
That 5-0 win in 2014-15 was India's last ODI series whitewash. Since they have beaten Zimbabwe 3-0 twice, as also beating them 5-0 in 2013.
