India complete T20 series sweep over Sri Lanka

India completed a three-nil sweep in the T20 series at home against Sri Lanka when they beat the visitors by five wickets in Mumbai on Sunday.

Chasing a target of 139, India won the game with five balls to spare thanks to solid contributions from Manish Pandey (32), Shreyas Iyer (30) and captainRohit Sharma (27).

Dinesh Karthik (18 not out) and MS Dhoni (16 not out) were at the crease when the home team hit the runs winning runs in the final over.

Earlier, India restricted the tourists to a total of 135/7 in their 20 overs.

Left arm seamer Jaydev Unadkat was the pick of the India bowlers with figures of 2/15 in four overs.

Asela Gunaratne, batting at number five, was the top-scorer in Sri Lanka’s innings but no other batsman made any meaningful contributions.

The victory caps a fine overall series for India as they won the preceding three-match ODI series two-one and also came up trumps in the two-match Test series one-nil.
