India registered their third consecutive T20I victory against Sri Lanka and whitewashed them 3-0. The hosts had the upper hand throughout the series, as the Lankans lacked strength in comparison to the men in blue.

India's stand-in skipper Rohit Sharma said after the win in Mumbai, that they were confident of chasing any target at Wankhede.

"Throughout the series, we had six batters plus one all-rounder, so we had seven batsmen. We always knew that whatever target is set up, we back our batsmen to get it," Rohit said after India beat Sri Lanka by five wickets to sweep the three-match T20 series 3-0.

"I am happy with the composition we had throughout the series. Guys who got opportunities made it count throughout. It was thoroughly a team effort. Each and every guy has put in a lot of effort," he added.

India had a lot of youngsters in their squad. Rohit lauded their efforts and said, "A lot of the guys were playing their first game, second game, but it never seemed that way. They were confident and it was our job as management to back them. They came and did what they were expected to do," said Rohit.

Asked about upcoming India's tour of South Africa, he said, "We are looking very much forward to South Africa.

"But I would like to reiterate the home season we've had has been a very good one. It's never easy, no matter what conditions you play in. There were few hiccups in the middle. Games like Dharamsala which taught us a lot."
