Twin tons lift India to 375
Captain Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma slammed quickfire tons as India flayed a hapless Sri Lanka to post 375 for 5 in the fourth one-day international in Colombo on Thursday.
The batsmen shared 219 runs for the second wicket off just 168 balls after the visitors won the toss and elected to bat on an easy-paced wicket at the R. Premadasa stadium.
With the series already in pocket, Kohli batted with gay abandon, hitting 17 fours and two sixes in his 96-ball 131.
Sharma (104) hammered 11 fours and three sixes in an equally entertaining innings off 88 balls.
