Australia v India - Game 5
MS Dhoni finished the game off with a four

India completed a whitewash, sweeping Sri Lanka 3-0, albeit in a more competitively fought game. Sri Lanka were pathetic with the bat but their bowlers made amends coming back strongly to put India in a spot of bother. With a required run rate touching seven and India five down, Lanka smelled a consolation win. But that was not to be as Dinesh Karthik ended their hopes with a game-sealing six.

Earlier, Rohit Sharma mixed up his young bowling options and they delivered. Jaydev Unadkat and Washington Sundar pegged Lanka back early and Hardik Pandya combined with Lanka's poor shot selection led to an average total. While the chase wasn't too easy, India completed a fine series whitewash.
