Rohit Sharma led from the front, scoring his third double hundred in ODIs.His unbeaten 208 put India in the driver's seat, while Shreyas Iyer (88 off 70 balls) and Shikhar Dhawan (68) were the other contributors, as India put up 392 on board.

Though Angelo Mathews scored a ton, Sri Lanka managed to score just 251 runs in reply and lost the match. Rohit Sharma won the Man of the match for his sublime double century.
