India lose 5th ODI, win series
New-ball bowler Nuwan Kulasekara wrecked India’s top order with a career-best haul of 4-40 to bowl Sri Lanka to a consolation 112-run victory in the fifth and final ODI on Friday in Colombo.
Kulasekara dismissed Kohli (31), Gautam Gambhir (11), Suresh Raina (10) and Rohit Sharma (3) in his opening spell. He was superbly supported by unorthodox spinner Ajantha Mendis, who finished with 4-10 in just 4.3 overs.
India, who already had a winning 3-1 lead, were shot out for 103 chasing a rain-revised target of 216 off 44 overs under lights. They clinched the series 3-2
