India thrash Sri Lanka by 9 wickets in first ODI

India tour of Sri Lanka 2017

Shikhar Dhawan scored his 11th ODI century and unbeaten 132  whilst Virat Kohli scored his 44th half-century as India hammered Sri Lanka by 9 wickets in the first ODI at Dambulla International Stadium.  Both players forged an unbroken 197-run partnership for the second wicket, the highest in Sri Lanka against Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka was off to a good start making 139 for one wicket in 25 overs before a collapse saw them post a small total of 216, a target that was never likely to trouble the visitors given the nature of the pitch.

Shikhar Dhawan was awarded the Man of the Match.

The second ODI match (Sri Lanka vs India) will be played at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium on 24th Aug 2017.
