India beat Sri Lanka in the third and final T20I of the series to complete a whitewash over the visitors.

Rohit Sharma had won the toss and opted to bowl in the final match of the series. 

Skipper Dasun Shanaka smashed an unbeaten 74 to steer Sri Lanka to 146 for five after a top-order wobble against India.

Avesh Khan took two wickets for 23 runs in his quota of four overs. Mohammed Siraj, Ravi Bishnoi and Harshal Patel scalped one wicket each. 

Shreyas Iyer hit third consecutive fifty to steady the run-chase after India lost Rohit Sharma & Sanju Samson early.

The win in the third and final T20I also helped India extend their winning streak in T20Is to 12 as they equalled the world record for the most successive victories.

    Dose SLT have a reverse button or gear?

    This is a better Lankan team than people give credit for. It is young, enthusiastic and skilled. It needs more international exposure and confidence.

    As what happened in Australia recently Sri Lanka has once again lost to a depleted Indian side minus all their top players which speaks volumes about the standard of Sri Lanka Cricket. According to the latest ICC Cricket Rankings Sri Lanka is almost at the bottom of the rankings in all formats of the game.

    Sri Lanka is broke but we are sending these clowns on taxpayer funded holidays to disgrace us.

    Baby has failed again. Take a Rigby Team and go to England and show your colours Baby.

    Hip hip hurry... Puss weddilla!! Where are big specialist consultants?????

    There are some good, key players who were not available for Sri Lanka in this series due to injuries. Let's not lose hope. This is a young team which looks promising. More exposure is needed.

    Not only Baby but Gota also failed

    SL cricket is a great example of what has happened to this country as a whole. Before long, countries like Australia, England and India will stop giving any matches to SL. If people don't know, these countries loose money by giving games to uncompetitive teams as ticket sales determine the games' commercial value. I don't think Mahela and Sangakkara care about SL cricket and they have been given too much importance for doing nothing. They talk too much and do very little. Their focus is to earn as much money as they can doing IPL and Hundred in UK. They have been given too much unnecessary importance.

    Sports Minister Namal Rajapakshe was the Head selector of our team and that is why we lost the series.

    KKS Monday, 28 February 2022 11:24 AM

    OK - never mind, Sports Minister must resign.

    Anthony. R Monday, 28 February 2022 12:32 PM

    The selection body is a total failure, poor team selection. It's obviously shows their lack of knowledge on the game, basically just going through the motions, to satisfy their hierarchy, and keep up their purses fat. Obviously ignorent of the opponents, ignorent of the foreign pitches,technically nill of the game, and playing conditions is what we see,of the Selecters and and their Chairman of selectors.
