That is it from the coverage of this game. Virat Kohli gets the trophy and the entire Indian team has a round in the car won by Jasprit Bumrah, with MS Dhoni behind the wheels. Smiles all around in the Indian camp! They will cherish this for a while! A complete drubbing from the visitors in both the Tests and ODIs. The hosts will have to sought out their plans and hope for a win in the one-off T20I which will be played at the same venue on the 6th of September at 0700 local (1330) GMT. Do join us for that. Till then, take care and cheers!
Virat Kohli starts by saying that it's always good to win the series 5-0. Praises his side for the way they way stood up. Continues saying that it has been a clinical show from his side and this momentum might help them against the Aussies in their upcoming series. Loves visiting Sri Lanka and feels that the people here are really kind and something that draws his attention is the way they show hospitality. Ends by saying that he would want to come here soon.
Man of the Series, Jasprit Bumrah is delighted with the way he has bowled. Says it's his dream to play the longest format of the game. Further says he got a good rest before this series which has helped him come out with a bang. Credits Malinga by saying that he has learnt a lot from the Lankan veteran as both of them play in the same team in the Indian T20 League.
Upul Tharanga says it is a difficult phase for them. Credits India for their dominating performance in the series. Mentions they lost too many wickets early and 260-270 would have been a good score. Admits they have to improve in all the three departments. Reckons the batting was very disappointing and a lot of work has to be done. Ends by saying that injuries are a big concern for them but accepts that they were not at their best.
Man of the match, Bhuvneshwar Kumar says he knew he was not among the wickets but is happy he got a fifer today. Admits they wanted to bowl more slower balls and that was their strategy. Reckons there was nothing to prove he just wanted to do well for his team.
Sir Lanka on the other hand, started off really well with Malinga and Fernando bagging a wicket each but were not supported well by the rest. The spinners could not get a lot of assistance from the wicket and hence couldn't build the pressure which allowed the Indian batsmen to run away with the game. They have a lot of soul searching to do as with each game passing by they have been handed drubbing after drubbing which fur sure must have dented the team's morale. This also happens to be the first instance where the hosts have been whitewashed in their own den, an unwanted record! Stay tuned for the presentation coming up in a while...
Another stunning performance from team India has them end the series on a high. They have bossed the run chase and Kohli, their captain who was unbeaten on a ton has once again anchored the run chase. They did lose two early wickets but Kohli first along with Pandey and then with Jadhav ensured there were no further hiccups. With the former scoring a 36 and the latter a half century.

46.1
W Hasaranga to K Jadhav, OUT! Hasaranga gets a wicket. Too late for Sri Lanka though. Flatter outside off, Kedar Jadhav gets a faint edge to the keeper who takes it and appeals. The umpire raises his finger and Kedar has to depart. He walks back dejected as he fails to take his team over the line. India are just two runs away.
