Sharma sees In­dia clinch se­ries win

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - CRICKET -

CRICKET: Ro­hit Sharma’s bril­liant cen­tury guided In­dia to a one-day in­ter­na­tional se­ries vic­tory in Sri Lanka as they coasted to a six-wicket win in Kandy, although the game was marred by crowd trou­ble.

As the tourists closed in on their mod­est tar­get of 218, fans threw bot­tles onto the pitch and the match was de­layed for around 35 min­utes be­fore spec­ta­tors were cleared from the ground and In­dia com­pleted vic­tory to go 3-0 up in the five­match se­ries.

Jasprit Bum­rah’s 5-27 had re­stricted Sri Lanka to 217-9, with Lahiru Thi­r­i­manne’s 80 the only con­tri­bu­tion of note from the hosts.
