  Commentary

  • That is all from us today, but do join us for the final ODI on Sunday (September 3). Have a good night. Cheers!

  • Well, that's that then. Virat Kohli carries a truckload of trophies, Malinga only a smile. It was a clinical performance by the Indians, as usual, and unfortunately for Sri Lanka, they look to be sliding down even further.

  • Here's Roshan Thyagarajan's match report.

  • Sri Lanka crumble under Kohli Rohit tons

    Rampant India open up 4 0 advantage with commanding 168 run rout in Dhonis 300th ODI

  • Virat Kohli, MoM - It was a good game for us. We made sure we were not complacent. We did what we wanted to do really well, it was a satisfying day. We wanted to bat because the pitch looked amazing. It was a good toss to win and putting the runs on the board. It was hard for the opposition to stay on track with the required run rate. We will keep experimenting. Most of the guys have had a chance, we might try things out with the batting line up too.

  • Lasith Malinga: 300 is a good number. I am happy I played for so many years for my nation. These last couple of days, I haven't been able to do much for the team. It is not easy (to stay motivated). We have young players who are excited to play for Sri Lanka. Once these youngsters have more experience, they will give their best for the country.

  • Player of the match - Virat Kohli

  • Time for the Presentation ceremony.

  • All too easy for the visitors in the end, like it has been all series. This is the largest margin of defeat for Sri Lanka at home in terms of runs. They were good in patches, but no one really stood up. Dickwella started off briskly but was dismissed by a non-threatening delivery from Shardul Thakur, the debutant. Angelo Mathews provided the much-required impetus with an 80-ball 70 and was briefly supported by Shardul Thakur. With no other sizeable contributions, chasing 375 for 5 was always going to be too much to ask for. For India, Thakur was impressive in his debut game, bowling with pace, and picked up a wicket. Pandya was wayward, but picked up two wickets, along with Kuldeep Yadav and Jaspreet Bumrah who picked up two wickets as well.

End of the Innings

Target: 376

  Full commentary

  • Virat Kohli was in his elements today as he slammed a spectacular 96-ball 131, laced with 17 fours and two sixes. He was ably supported by Rohit Sharma, who scored back to back centuries with an 88-ball 104. Sri Lanka struck back, however, with Mathews being the enforcer. A 101-run partnership between MS Dhoni and Manish Pandey, however, ensured India didn;t falter at the death. The pitch, mind you, is a belter, so the hosts should fancy themselves with nothing to lose.

  • Well, Sri Lanka can't be too unhappy with that, despite India scoring a humongous 375 for 5. That is because when Rohit and Kohli were batting, 450 was looking a possibility.

  • So, as expected India testing their bench strength, which means Shardul Thakur makes his debut, becoming the 218th player to represent India in ODIs. Manish Pandey also gets a chance at the expense of Kedar Jadhav who has looked out of sorts, while the exciting Kuldeep Yadav also gets a look in.

  • Lasith Malinga: We were looking to bowl first as well. Chasing gives us a chance. There have been injuries, but the team is keen to do the best for the country.

  • Virat Kohli: Looks like a good wicket, conditions are hot. Not the best time to bowl in the evening the ball loks to do a bit. The track looks splendid. We won the Test series, 3-0, are 3-0 up in the ODI as well, so it feels good. It is all about being ruthless, and not putting the foot off the pedal. (On MS Dhoni) We presented a memento to MS, and I was fortunate enough to do so. He has been a legend. 90% of the guys started the career under him. Three changes, Shardul Thakur makes his debut, Kuldeep Yadav and Manish Pandey come in.

  • Virat Kohli calls it right, and India will bat first.

  • Toss in a bit.

  • While the weather at the moment is good in Colombo, there are chances of thunderstorms later in the day. Rain hasn't had a say so far in the tournament, hope it stays away today as well.

  • This game also marks the 300th ODI for Mahendra Singh Dhoni. India's most successful captain, and what a journey it has been!

  • Series in the bag India likely to tinker with playing XI in fourth ODI

    Sri Lanka to be led by Lasith Malinga have everything to play for but might still struggle to reverse the trend of unfavourable results

  • Good afternoon, ladies and gentleman. A warm welcome to the fourth One-Day International between Sri Lanka and India, live from the R Premadasa Stadium, Colombo. From a series point of view, the game might not have much much bearing, but as far as the teams are concerned this is far from just a dead rubber. While, Sri Lanka, on one hand, have had a torrid time of sorts over the past month, they will be keen on getting something on the board, not just for the fans, but also to seal an automatic qualification for the 2019 World Cup, whereas India, who don't seem to be putting a foot wrong, will be hoping to test their bench strength, having taken an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match ODI series.

  Full commentary

  • That is all from us today, but do join us for the final ODI on Sunday (September 3). Have a good night. Cheers!

  • Well, that's that then. Virat Kohli carries a truckload of trophies, Malinga only a smile. It was a clinical performance by the Indians, as usual, and unfortunately for Sri Lanka, they look to be sliding down even further.

  • Here's Roshan Thyagarajan's match report.

  • Sri Lanka crumble under Kohli Rohit tons

    Rampant India open up 4 0 advantage with commanding 168 run rout in Dhonis 300th ODI

  • Virat Kohli, MoM - It was a good game for us. We made sure we were not complacent. We did what we wanted to do really well, it was a satisfying day. We wanted to bat because the pitch looked amazing. It was a good toss to win and putting the runs on the board. It was hard for the opposition to stay on track with the required run rate. We will keep experimenting. Most of the guys have had a chance, we might try things out with the batting line up too.

  • Lasith Malinga: 300 is a good number. I am happy I played for so many years for my nation. These last couple of days, I haven't been able to do much for the team. It is not easy (to stay motivated). We have young players who are excited to play for Sri Lanka. Once these youngsters have more experience, they will give their best for the country.

  • Player of the match - Virat Kohli

  • Time for the Presentation ceremony.

  • All too easy for the visitors in the end, like it has been all series. This is the largest margin of defeat for Sri Lanka at home in terms of runs. They were good in patches, but no one really stood up. Dickwella started off briskly but was dismissed by a non-threatening delivery from Shardul Thakur, the debutant. Angelo Mathews provided the much-required impetus with an 80-ball 70 and was briefly supported by Shardul Thakur. With no other sizeable contributions, chasing 375 for 5 was always going to be too much to ask for. For India, Thakur was impressive in his debut game, bowling with pace, and picked up a wicket. Pandya was wayward, but picked up two wickets, along with Kuldeep Yadav and Jaspreet Bumrah who picked up two wickets as well.
