India wrapped-up a memorable tour of Sri Lanka with a seven-wicket victory over the hosts in the one-off T20 worldwide at the Premadasa Stadium, in Colombo, on Wednesday.

While India bowlers definitely did awesome task of restricting the Sri Lankan side to just 207 all-out, part of the credit for the win goes to Skipper Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma who both hit quickfire centuries - 219 runs for the second wicket off just 168 balls.

The official handing over of an Offshore Patrol Vessel (OPV), which had earlier belonged to the Indian Coast Guard, to Sri Lanka took place at the Port of Kochi, India, Navy said. India clean sweeping the entire Sri Lanka tour with this convincing win.Let us have a look at a few defining moments of the match. But Kohli and his class of 2017 went a step ahead, whitewashing the hosts 3-0 in Tests and 5-0 in One-Day Internationals and capped off a successful tour swatting the hosts aside in every single clash.

Pandey finished off the game with a boundary that brought his maiden T20 fifty in 36 balls. But, Virat Kohli held the fort. The world of cricket has not seen a better wicketkeeper to spinners and the likes of Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep Yadav and other spinners in the Indian team must consider themselves very lucky that Dhoni is keeping wickets for them. Munaweera wanted to take the attack to the opposition right from the word go, and played a fearless brand of cricket. India chased down that target with seven wickets and four balls remaining. "The mindset stays the same, we need to play to win and have to ensure that complacency doesn't creep in".

Coming in at No.3, Munaweera saved the hosts from the blushes in a cameo before allrounder Priyanjan's unbeaten run-a-ball 40 helped them to a healthy total.

4- Number of fifties for Kohli against Sri Lanka - the most by any batsman.

Sri Lanka and Indian sub-continent:Sony Ten. In that Sri Lanka won four matches and lost six matches. The Australian team is currently in Bangladesh for a Test series and their batsman would by now have got a good feel of the sub continent and that makes for a riveting contest.
