  Commentary

  • That's it from us then. It's finally over - the humiliation, the dominance, the ruthlessness - and just like Sri Lanka, we too are happy about it. Bye bye for now, but it won't be too long before the Aussies steps foot on Indian soil for five ODIs and three T20Is.

  • Virat Kohli: Credit to all the hard work the boys have put in throughout this tour. This is the evidence of the fact that how hungry the players are in Indian cricket. I am very, very happy as a captain. I look to back my strengths in T20 cricket or any other format that I play. I want to play all formats. It's something I've practiced very hard to mold my game to all formats. When you have lost two wickets chasing 171, we knew it won't be easy. Manish was outstanding as well today and the partnership was really crucial for us.

  • Upul Tharanga: We were 15-20 runs short in this game. Munaweera batted really well but we failed to capitalise on the start once again. In between 10 to 14 overs, we lost momentum. The way Virat batted was outstanding and that was the difference between the two teams.

  • India won the series.

  • Player of the series - Virat Kohli

  • Player of the match - Virat Kohli

  • The tour scoreline now reads 9-0 and that shows the domination Indian team. Virat Kohli and his men won't have it easy in the coming months with Australia touring India and then quite a few foreign tours lined up. Sri Lanka though will have a chance for redemption when they come to India in few months but with what we have seen, the road for Lankans aren't going to be easy.

  • Meanwhile, India look a powerful unit and the only question that they had was over Dhoni, and by the end of series, not many can question his presence in the team. Virat Kohli has been brilliant both with the bat and captain's hat on. Axar, Chahal, and Kuldeep have done well to make sure India doesn't feel the absence of Jadeja, Umesh, and Shami. Bumrah, as usual, did what he is known for and Bhuvi was not far behind. They have also become the first visiting side to record an all-win record in a multi-format series.

  • It's finally over. India have not just outplayed Sri Lanka in all the departments but also, humiliated them in front of their home crowd. Sri Lanka will have plenty to think about in terms of their performances and the only solution could be asking out Kumar Sangakkara to come out of the retirement and help them to grow.

  Full commentary

  • Having scored 60 runs in the first six overs, Sri Lanka would have fancied their chances to get at least 190 but some slump in the middle over brought them down to 118 for 6 by the end of 15 overs. Ashan Priyanjan (40*) and Isuru Udana (19*) then added 36 runs off 20 deliveries to get Sri Lanka to a challenging score of 170. Don't go anywhere, as the chase might not be that easy as it looks for the visiting party.

  • Virat Kohli: We are going to bowl first here. Might have an advantage batting second here with a little bit of rain. We have played good cricket and didn't have any targets in our mind. We want to create good habits and continue with the same. From the last game, Rahane and Shardul misses out and KL (Rahul) and Axar comes in.

  • India Won the Toss & Elected to Field

  • Umpires have informed that the game will start at 7.40 pm (local time) and will still be a 20-over game.

  • Russel Arnold feels the opener should try to play a couple of aerial shots to get the ball wet and that will make the job easier for the batting unit as the ball will start skidding.Despite some dampness in the pitch, the wicket will play out well because of the hardness R.Premadasa's wicket is known for.

  • Sidath Wettimuny, the former Sri Lankan opener, blamed structural failure at all levels for Sri Lanka’s abysmal run in recent times. “This is just the effect of neglect. This has been coming for a while. I remember telling someone five years ago that we would go below Zimbabwe (in rankings). We’re getting there. It’s embarrassing and it’s humiliating."

  • This is the effect of neglect Wettimuny lashes out

    Former opener castigates administration structure for Sri Lankas woeful on field performance

  • Roshan says the inspection will take place at 7 pm local time.

  • It's been raining in Colombo since last morning, but not to worry, it has stopped for now. "The covers are slowly coming off and the clouds have cleared up, says our correspondent Roshan Thyagarajan. "It looks like the game will happen on time."

  • We still have some time before the action gets underway, till then, here's Roshan Thyagarajan's preview:

  • Rain could steal Indias thunder as tour closes

    The forecast for the one off T20I is not bright but should play happen Sri Lanka might have a chance to salvage some pride

  • Meanwhile, Sri Lanka have brought in six new faces to help them in this attempt. It is the hosts’ last-ditch effort to try and salvage a win and perhaps raise the morale of the team and the nation. One cannot help but feel that the new members could only add confusion to what has already been a perplexing campaign.

  • India have been in the ruthless mode for the entire tour and have completely decimated the home side. Virat Kohli's men humiliated Sri Lanka 3-0 in the Tests before bludgeoning them 5-0 in the recently completed ODIs.

  • Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the solitary Twenty20 International between Sri Lanka and India.

  Full commentary

  • That's it from us then. It's finally over - the humiliation, the dominance, the ruthlessness - and just like Sri Lanka, we too are happy about it. Bye bye for now, but it won't be too long before the Aussies steps foot on Indian soil for five ODIs and three T20Is.

  • Virat Kohli: Credit to all the hard work the boys have put in throughout this tour. This is the evidence of the fact that how hungry the players are in Indian cricket. I am very, very happy as a captain. I look to back my strengths in T20 cricket or any other format that I play. I want to play all formats. It's something I've practiced very hard to mold my game to all formats. When you have lost two wickets chasing 171, we knew it won't be easy. Manish was outstanding as well today and the partnership was really crucial for us.

  • Upul Tharanga: We were 15-20 runs short in this game. Munaweera batted really well but we failed to capitalise on the start once again. In between 10 to 14 overs, we lost momentum. The way Virat batted was outstanding and that was the difference between the two teams.

  • India won the series.

  • Player of the series - Virat Kohli

  • Player of the match - Virat Kohli

  • The tour scoreline now reads 9-0 and that shows the domination Indian team. Virat Kohli and his men won't have it easy in the coming months with Australia touring India and then quite a few foreign tours lined up. Sri Lanka though will have a chance for redemption when they come to India in few months but with what we have seen, the road for Lankans aren't going to be easy.

  • Meanwhile, India look a powerful unit and the only question that they had was over Dhoni, and by the end of series, not many can question his presence in the team. Virat Kohli has been brilliant both with the bat and captain's hat on. Axar, Chahal, and Kuldeep have done well to make sure India doesn't feel the absence of Jadeja, Umesh, and Shami. Bumrah, as usual, did what he is known for and Bhuvi was not far behind. They have also become the first visiting side to record an all-win record in a multi-format series.

  • It's finally over. India have not just outplayed Sri Lanka in all the departments but also, humiliated them in front of their home crowd. Sri Lanka will have plenty to think about in terms of their performances and the only solution could be asking out Kumar Sangakkara to come out of the retirement and help them to grow.
