Today's result meant that India also remained unbeaten in Delhi since 1988. They have played 12 times, winning 10 and drawing two at Feroz Shah Kotla stadium.
The match, however, witnessed the Lankan team, which was comfortably beaten in the previous match, registering the highest fourth innings total against India in India.
The previous highest was 276/5 by the West Indies at the same venue in 1987.
