“This contest seems between two boxers from different weight categories.”

These words from Harsha Bhogle precisely sum up the contest between India and Sri Lanka. If anyone thought that Sri Lanka would be up for a fight considering a change in the format, then that person was mistaken, as the gap between the two outfits just widened.

The target of 217 was never going to be enough for a batting powerhouse like India, and in conditions which suit them, even 150 more runs wouldn’t have been, after the way the Indian batsmen nailed their task to perfection.

For India though, it was all about Shikhar Dhawan, as the southpaw carried on from where he left in the Test series. Scoring the 11th ton of his ODI career, Dhawan ensured that it was his fastest, as he tore into the mediocre Sri Lankan bowling. The Delhi dasher was simply too dominant and his ruthlessness pretty much defined the chase.

Skipper Virat Kohli chipped in with an entertaining half-century as well to seal the formalities. Fans on Twitter went crazy, as India sealed off the chase with over 20 overs to spare. Below are some of the tweets.
