India vs Srilanka 5th ODI - Will it be a White Wash?

Ind vs SL 5th ODI Live Streaming

India vs Sri Lanka 5th ODI, which again is mere a formality to complete the series; will be played on 16th November 2014 at JSCA International Cricket Stadium in Ranchi. Star Sports website will bring live cricket streaming of this ODI whereas Star Sports TV network in India will provide live telecast with live Hindi and English commentary.

India has already clinched the ODI series with a lead of 4-0. One more match to go and we have another white wash likely! If we check India vs Srilanka bilateral ODI series history in last two decades, most of the series have ended with the figures of 2-1, 3-1, 5-1, etc in favour of India. So will Srilanka continue that trend of winning one out of the blues? Or will India turn tables on Srilanka this time and win all of them? We need to wait and watch.

The way all the matches have ended in a one-sided affair, it is highly unlikely that Srilanka can  make it at Ranchi tomorrow. Above all after seeing India posting a 400 plus score in last match, we see pure dominance from the home team.

How can we forget to mention Rohit Sharma? Well he has been named as Hitman by few leading newspapers in India. He just smashed the Srilankan bowlers all over the park for 33 boundaries! Yes 33 boundaries and that wasn't a test match. Above all he became the first player on this planet to score two double hundreds in ODI cricket. A feat that almost looked impossible till the time Sachin scored first double century in ODI against South Africa at Gwalior. Following suit, Sehwag once smashed West Indies bowlers for 219 runs innings. After that Rohit Sharma managed to score a double ton against mighty Australians. And this was his second one. Not only that, he also became the batsman with highest individual score in ODI history - 264! That is mammoth isn't it? And whole Srilankan team couldn't manage to score 264, 404 was a bigger task!

Srilankan captain Angelo Mathews accepted the fact that this series and especially the last ODI has been highly embarassing for the team. At the same time he applauded Rohit Sharma's batting. It is not only the bowling but also the batting and fielding that has let Sri Lanka down. They need to see a revamp in the last ODI to win for some pride.

Meanwhile there is a news that MS Dhoni won't be playing in the first test match against Australia down under. He hasn't yet recovered from his injury. So another shot at the captaincy down under for Virat Kohli! Keep reading us for udpates on India vs Australia live streaming updates, news and previews.
