Rohit Sharma became the highest run getter in One Day International cricket while plundering 264 vs. Sri Lanka who were crushed by India in the fourth game with a big margin of 153 runs. It was an amazing innings by Sharma who was playing his first game since August 2014 when he got injured in the series against England. The right hand batsman faced just 173 balls and dispatched 9 sizzling sixes along with 33 sweetly timed fours all around the park. The hosts piled up 404 runs for the loss of five mere wickets in the allotted 50 overs and the entire batting side of the tourists was rolled back at 251 with 41 balls to spare. The home side is commanding the ongoing series at 4-0 and must be anticipating another victory in the final encounter.
Rohit Sharma demonstrated his class in the previous game by hammering 264 and Virat Kohli contributed 66 runs while Ambati Rayudu and Suresh Raina are scoring freely. Dhawal Kulkarni grabbed four wickets, Umesh Yadav and Akshar Patel are their most successful bowlers in the ongoing series.
Angelo Mathews and Lahiru Thirimanne played useful knocks for the Lankan Lions by posting 75 and 59 runs but that did not help the visitors. The experienced duo of Mahela Jayawardene and Tillakaratne Dilshan are among runs whereas none of their bowlers has accumulated more than three wickets in four matches.
