India  U19  batsman Yashasvi Jaiswal struck a match-winning unbeaten ton (114*) to help India win the series against Sri Lanka. Batting first, India restricted Sri Lanka to a modest 212 for 9 in 50 overs after a collective effort from the Indian bowlers. The visitors then knocked off the runs in 42.4 overs, courtesy Jaiswal, who hit eight fours and three sixes.

In the bowling effort it was Mohit Jangra, who had the best figures of 2 for 30 while all the others got a wicket apiece. Sri Lanka lost their last six wickets for 39 runs in a sudden middle-order collapse after looking good for a big score at 174 for 3.

For Sri Lanka  Madushka Fernando played the anchor role scoring  95 off 136 balls with seven boundaries, before seamer Jangra trapped him leg before. He added 101 runs for the third wicket with Keshawa Fernando (56).

Post the dismissal of Madhuska Sri Lanka lost the plot and were folded up for 212 as the Indian left-arm spinners Siddharth Desai (1/33) and Harsh Tyagi (1/43) dried up the runs.
