Tharanga returned to the Sri Lanka lineup after a serving a two-match suspension for a slow over rate in the second match. On the other hand, regular skipper Upul Tharanga is leading the hosts in the final ODI. He wanted to chip that one, unable to pick the knuckle ball. The 34-year-old pacer has looked a shadow of his former self throughout the series.

Kedar Jadhav supported him in the innings scoring his first fifty on the tour and helping India whitewash Sri Lanka without breaking a sweat.

Despite the early setbacks, Tharanga continued to plunder boundaries at will much to the delight of the home crowd but when Jasprit Bumrah got one to slant across and take his outside edge, Sri Lanka found themselves in familiar territory, having to rebuild from scratch. Indian bowlers are keeping it straight and simple on the wicket, Sri Lankan openers are happy to play the waiting game. Despite a century partnership between Lahiru Thirimanne and Angelo Mathews, the hosts couldn't post a massive total on the board as they stuttered and stumbled their way towards 238 before they were bowled out with two balls to go. In fact, it was their highest wicket for any partnership in the ongoing series for the Islanders.

Thirimanne made 67 for his 18th ODI half-century off 102 deliveries including three boundaries and a six. Sri Lanka surprised a few with their decision to bat first again.

Dhoni reached to the historic landmark when he removed Akila Dananjaya's bails and stumped him off the bowling of Yuzvendra Chahal in the 45th over of the Lankan innings. The wicket-keeper ergo overhauled Kumar Sangakkara's 99 stumpings.

Kumar finished with five for 42, his maiden five wicket haul in his 71st one-day worldwide. It was also his career-best figures in ODIs, beating the previous-best of 4/8. Gunathilaka's presence at the top would have been a shot in the arm for Sri Lanka, and it seemed like he would make the cut, but following Saturday's practice session, he was ruled out.
