India will take on Sri Lanka in their fifth and final One-Day International (ODI) at the Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) Stadium in Ranchi on Sunday. India lead the series 4-0 against the struggling tourists.

According to PTI, if India have been thoroughly professional in their first three outings, the penultimate one at Eden Gardens, turned out to be historic with Rohit Sharma smashing his way into the record books with a highest individual ODI score of 264 as India routed the islanders by 153 runs.

Sri Lankan skipper Angelo Mathews has admitted that nothing was going their way after a string of embarrassing failures. The worst part was that they were never able to give India any competition.

If the bowling has lacked the venom in absence of their sling-arm fast bowler Lasith Malinga, it’s better not to say something about the fielding which has failed to give them the back-up.

Squads:

India: Virat Kohli (c), Murali Vijay, Akshar Patel, Shikhar Dhawan, Wriddhiman Saha (wk), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Dhawal Kulkarni, Umesh Yadav, Ishant Sharma, Ajinkya Rahane, Ambati Rayudu, Amit Mishra, Stuart Binny.

Sri Lanka: Angelo Mathews (c), Kusal Perera, Tillakaratne Dilshan, Upul Tharanga, Kumar Sangakkara, Mahela Jayawardene, Ashan Priyanjan, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Thisara Perera, Nuwan Kulasekara, Dhammika Prasad, Lahiru Gamage, Chaturanga de Silva, Seekuge Prasanna, Suraj Randiv.
