A fine spell of bowling by Bhuvneshwar Kumar helped India restrict Sri Lanka to 238 all out in 5th and final ODI at the R. Premadasa Stadium.

He bagged 5 for 42 off 9.2 overs, his first 5-wicket haul in ODIs.

Earlier, Skipper Upul Tharanga scoring 48 off 34 balls gave a flying start for Sri Lanka.

After his dismissal, when the score was on 63, Lahiru Thirimanne (67 off 102 balls) and Angelo Mathews (55 off 98 balls) added 122 runs for the fifth wicket.

But loss of wickets at regular intervals did not allow Sri Lanka to amass a challenging total.
