During the first two ODIs of the series, Niroshan Dickwella would move slightly outside the line of the ball to play him through the off-side. The visitors, whose assignation with experiments nearly blew up and it is coming from the front side. In the second ODI, India won their game by losing seven wickets. Milinda Siriwardana's hard work and Chamara Kapugedera's performances for Sri Lanka will probably support to bat out 50 overs.

With Lahiru Thirimanne threatening to cut loose later, Virat Kohli turned to Bumrah again, and he delivered a flawless slower ball which the batsman chipped straight to midwicket.

In reply, India reached its target with 29 balls to spare, ending on 218-4 in 45.1 overs despite a shaky start.

Lankan off-spinner Akila Dananjaya took six for 54, his maiden ODI five-wicket haul, to trigger an Indian middle order collapse after an aggressive start from Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan.

Indeed till Dananjaya came up with a breath-taking spell he just proved himself massive.

While the test team have been number one in the world rankings for much of the previous year on the back of 14 wins in 18 matches, all but two of those have been played on the sub-continent. Overall, in this series Sri Lanka have lost 19 wickets at an average of 17.05 after the 25th over.

Sri Lanka is having now the same position which once had by the Pakistan in the ICC Champions Trophy.

This was India's seventh successive bilateral series victory against Sri Lanka. "I don't see any reason to change team just after 1 game but everything and any combination is possible", said Kohli.

"If I had come at No 3, I would have still missed that ball because he (Dananjaya) was bowling that well".

"When I went in to bat, MS told me to play my natural game like I play in Test cricket and don't take any pressure as we had a lot of overs at that time. So it's an opportunity for everyone in the team including MS to create good habits and sustain them over a period of time".

India are scheduled to play almost two dozen ODIs and T20s in the next sixth months. His stock ball is the offbreak, but when he feels the situation suits it, he can deliver the ball out of the back of his hand, to make it turn away from the right-handed batsman.
