Virat Kohli hit a well-timed century of his career to steer India to victory in the fifth one-day international (ODI) against Sri Lanka. India won the series 5-0.

Earlier in the day, Sri Lanka captain Angelo Mathews played a superb innings as he scored his maiden century, scoring 139 and leading the visitors to set a target of 286 runs.

India lost both their openers early, with Matthews claiming both scalps, before Ambati Rayadu (59) and Kohli steadied the innings. However, once Rayadu was run-out, India started collapsing, with no batsman able to give Kohli support. India slipped from 180-3 to 231-7.

However, Akshar Patel (17 not out) was able to withstand the Lankan attack, and he kept the run metre ticking. In the end, Kohli smashed two sixes off an Ajantha Mendis over for the win. The Indian stand-in captain remained not out at 139, winning the match by 3 wickets with eight balls to spare. 

Brief scores:

Sri Lanka: 286/8 in 50 overs (Angelo Mathews 139 not out, Lahiru Thirimanne 52; Akshar Patel 2/45, R Ashwin 2/56)

India: 288/7 in 48.4 overs (Virat Kohli 139 not out, Ambati Rayudu 59; Ajantha Mendis 4/73, Angelo Mathews 2/33).
