India vs Srilanka 1st ODI: India thrashes Srilanka with a 9 Wicket victory

In Dambulla on Sunday, Team India won by nine wickets with 21.1 overs left. This was India’s biggest win in ODI in terms of remaining balls.
Sri Lanka were 139 for one in the 25th over, when they started losing wickets. They lost nine wickets for 77 runs to be all out and set a target of 216 runs. Shikhar Dhawan hammered 132 out of 90 balls in partnership with Kohli who scored 82 runs in 70 balls and took India to a massive victory by 9 wickets with 21.1 overs remaining.

Shikhar Dhawan slammed his fastest one-day international century and became the first Indian batsmen to hit six consecutive 50 plus scores against any team in ODI. “I would like to keep performing well. That would be my goal because I don’t perform there are such great batsmen in our side that anyone can take the place. I embrace that period also, When I was not doing well I was just focusing on my processes. And when I am doing well, I am still focusing on my processes. I feel failure teaches you a lot and I am lucky I have learned so much out of that.” said Dhawan.
