India demolish Sri Lanka, complete historic 3-0 whitewash India complete series sweep with another emphatic win Mon, 14 Aug 2017-04:38pm , PTI An authoritative India completed a 3-0 clean sweep of Sri Lanka with an innings and 171-run annihilation in the third and final Test, bringing an early end to one of the most lopsided series in recent years. None of the three matches lasted five days, with the final one being the shortest, lasting just two and a half days with the hosts folding up for 181 in 74.3 overs in their second innings shortly before tea on day three. The comprehensive series win also extended India's dominating run in Tests ever with 20 victories, one loss and five draws since the defeat in Galle in the previous series in Sri Lanka two years ago.
