New Delhi: The decider of the three-match T20I series could not have been more one sided.
The result of the match was clear when Ravichandran Ashwin completed his third over.
The in-form off-spinner on Sunday delivered a man of the match performance in Vizag to help bundle out Sri Lanka for 82.
With figures of 4 for 8, the Chennai spinner beat his previous best of 4 for 11 to record the best T20I bowling performance by an Indian.
The 29-year-old dismissed Niroshan Dickwella, T Dilshan, Dinesh Chandimal and Asela Gunaratne to cripple the visitors' batting line-up.
