Sri Lanka have finally lost an ODI match. Their 13-match winning streak has been broken by India and what a pure roller-coaster ride this was! It tested India, it tested Sri Lanka but they are Rohit Sharma and Co. who end up on the winning side. They held their nerves well and deserved this win. You also need to give credit to Sri Lanka.
