Sri Lanka avoid whitewash
Indian cricket team players pose with the trophy after winning the three-match ODI series 2-1 against Sri Lanka at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Friday. Sri Lanka avoided a series whitewash against a second-string India side after half-centuries by Avishka Fernando and Bhanuka Rajapaksa led them to a three-wicket victory in the rain-hit third and final match. It was Sri Lanka's first ODI win against India since 2017 and they collected 10 Super League points for the 2023 World Cup qualification. The teams will now clash in a three-match Twenty20 series in Colombo beginning on Sunday.
