“The ODI domination starts here”, Twitter reacts as India becomes the first ever team to win by 300+ runs in ODI


Scoring over 400 runs in an ODI very much seals the deal and ends the game right there. Unless there’s a whole road on the field (which there wasn’t) or if England is the pursuing team. Even while the eventual outcome was predictable, the meek capitulation of the Sri Lankan batsmen was surprising.

They could have put up a fight regardless of how unlikely their goal was. Siraj’s first burst with the new ball dashed whatever faint hopes the visitors may have had, and the onslaught continued unabated from there.

Only three batters reached double digits, and no pairing saw more than 20 balls. That pretty much sums up the scenario. India only used three specialized bowlers total, and Iyer contributed an over of his own. Siraj should have gotten a fifer but came agonizingly close to getting it.

Karunaratne’s wicket is the only one that comes close to reflecting the current situation that Sri Lanka faced. Consider the frustration of playing a forward defence back to the bowler, only to be run out because your foot was out of the crease.

This is ridiculous on a whole other level. Although, India’s showing was really professional. Kohli and Gill’s hundreds helped put the home team in a position where they could not be caught.

India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma (c), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (w), Suryakumar Yadav, Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj
