Sri Lanka bat after rain delay, India make four changes

Indian cricket team players pose with the trophy after their win over Sri Lanka in the fifth and last one-day global cricket match between Sri Lanka and India at The R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on September 3, 2017.

India thus whitewashed Sri Lanka 5-0 in the series.

A rampaging India will fancy their chances of completing a 5-0 whitewash of Sri Lanka when they face the beleaguered hosts in the fifth and final One-day global match on Sunday.

The series win came after India swept the preceding three-Test rubber 3-0, capping their domination of the home side which has been beset by injury and selection woes.

Majority of Americans believe Trump is 'tearing the country apart'
By comparison, just 15 percent of Americans shared they agree with Trump on almost all of the hot-button issues of the day. At issue is what assumptions are included in the budget baseline used to score tax changes: current policy or current law.

Meanwhile, Man of the Series JaspritBumrah expressed his happiness with his performance and improvement following every game. We always thought the limited overs were going to be much more challenging but credit to the guys. We have worked on it. "All round, it's been a complete series for us", said Kohli. "That's not something that you aim for but obviously he's a great player and as batsmen we all respect what these legends have done", said Kohli in the post-match press conference. Kohli and Manish Pandey shared a 99-run third wicket stand that got India back on track in the run chase after losing a couple of early wickets.

He has not scored an global century since August 2015, and he had only scored one ODI fifty in his first nine innings this year, but during the 80-ball 70 on Thursday, at least, Angelo Mathews seemed to regain a little of his old self.

Remarkably, Kohli has reached 30 centuries in just 186 innings - compared to the 349 it took for Ponting, or 267 it took for Tendulkar. With the landmark, Kohli is now joint-second with Ricky Ponting on the list of most ODI hundreds behind Sachin Tendulkar (49).

Trump Drafted Letter to Comey on Why He Was Getting Fired
But the "circumstances" the Trump White House cited in removing Comey never included anything about Comey going easy on Clinton. Instead, the letter circulated among White House aides and Justice Department officials the day before Comey's firing.

They lost their last seven wickets for 53 runs and eventually got bundled out for 238 in the last over of the innings.

As Indian cricket fans, we hope the purple patch continues for team India as they have a long season coming up.

"As a player and captain, I feel very bad about it".

Thirimanne and Mathews though defied the Indian bowling for 29.3 overs as they put on the hosts' highest stand throughout this five-match series. "This is one aspect we need to rectify", he added.

Iran keeping within limits of nuclear deal
Diplomats said Macron's comments, in which he also stressed that the deal was "good", came amid concerns in Paris that U.S. Although Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany also signed on to the pact, Iran and the USA were the key players.
