Man of the Match is Bhuvaneshwar Kumar for his 5/42.

We look at the key talking points of India's impressive victory as Sri Lanka were whitewashed for the first time in their own backyard. He took over the ODI captaincy from Rahul Dravid in 2007 and led the team to its first-ever bilateral ODI series wins in Sri Lanka and New Zealand. Also the live telecast of this match will be available there on DD National and other cricket channels which broadcast the every cricket match. And with the fall of his wicket, Sri Lanka suffered from yet another batting collapse in the series.

The reason behind this unusual sight might be a step from Sri Lanka to draw the crowd to the ground again.

"It is a very hard time for us". Kohli's Team didn't allow Lankans to take a breather from the match One. As with Bumrah, Axar is another bowler who does not allow opposition batsmen to settle, Kohli said.

There was the one game - when Akila Dananjaya picked up six wickets and left India reeling at 131 for 7 - where Sri Lanka came within sniffing distance of a win.

The 28-year-old further insisted that he only focuses on contributing to the team and doesn't play for records.

In this series, Rohit Sharma is the leading run scorer by scoring 286 runs followed by him, Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan are in the second and third place with 220 runs and 190 runs respectively.

Man-of-the-series Jasprit Bumrah said: "It's my first visit to Sri Lanka and I'm glad I did well". Shardul Thakur, Manish Pandey and Kuldeep Yadav will probably get another outing.

"It is quite awesome to win the series 5-0". Last time India witnessed whitewash in the overseas. Another target is that we try to tell the top five that someone has to bat for 45 overs. Gunathilaka is suffering from a Shoulder injury and Kapugedera is also suffering from Injury.

Five of Kusal Mendis last eight ODI scores have been either zeros or ones.

Kohli had point out that the visiting team will persist with the experiments which will be present players in the different roles. However they could not go on to get a big one. During Sri Lanka's woeful 2017, it is probably fair to say that no one's contributions have been missed more than Mathews'.

With the Test and ODI series his bag without much sweat, Kohli now turned his focus on the upcoming limited-overs series against Australia later this month.
