An unpleasant incident happened during the third and final ODI of the series between India and Sri Lanka when two players, Jeffrey Vandersay and Ashen Bandara, tried to block a boundary during the 43rd over of the Indian innings. Team India’s Virat Kohli blasted the ball to the fine-leg boundary, and as Vandersay and Bandara rushed from opposite ends, they forcefully collided, hurting both of them.

The play had to be put on hold for a time since the two required medical treatment for their injuries. They eventually needed to be carried off the field on stretchers. The Sri Lankan players joined the couple while they were getting help, clearly anxious. After Vandersay and Bandara were brought off the field, Virat Kohli asked Dasun Shanaka, the Sri Lankan captain, whether everything was okay.

Earlier, Kohli needed 85 deliveries to complete his 46th ODI century. Before getting dismissed for 116 off 97 deliveries, Shubman Gill scored his second century in the format.

Rohit Sharma, the captain of India, won the toss at the Greenfield Stadium in Trivandrum and chose to bat. The Indian batsman had scored 113 in the third and final ODI of the series against Bangladesh and hit the same score of 113 in the first match of the Sri Lanka ODIs. Kohli’s century is his second in the series and third in the past four ODIs.

Kohli completed his innings at a brilliant unbeaten 166 with 13 fours and 8 sixes.

After beating the visitors by 67 runs in Guwahati and again by four wickets in Kolkata at the historic Eden Gardens stadium, India has already won the series against Sri Lanka.
