India’s largest-ever ODI victory rewrites the history books

January 16, 2023

The stunning 317-run victory over Sri Lanka in the third and final ODI saw India enter the archives of history as Virat Kohli’s magnificent ton lit up the dead rubber in Thiruvananthapuram.


Rohit Sharma and co. achieved the most significant victory margin in men’s ODI cricket history as India defeated Sri Lanka in the series finale.


Highlights of India’s historic victory over the islands included Siraj’s new ball-ball burst (4/32) and Kohli’s 46th ton, in which he struck off 110 balls.


With their no. 10 out injured, Sri Lanka could only produce 73 for 9 in their 22 overs as India made a massive 390 for 5.


The victory margin of 317 runs, which surpassed New Zealand’s 290-run triumph over Ireland in Aberdeen in 2008, is now the largest ever.


Australia’s 275-run victory over Afghanistan in Perth in 2015 is the third-highest victory margin.


The Sri Lankans absolutely capitulated in front of bowler Mohammed Siraj, who bowled beautifully with the new ball, even though the goal of 391 was always going to be challenging.


In the first ten overs, Siraj struck four times, giving the Lankans little chance in the chase.


In addition to taking a few wickets each, Mohammed Shami and Kuldeep Yadav contributed to India’s historic victory.
