Gill hammers Madushanka for a hat-trick of boundaries

Virat Kohli hit his 45th ODI hundred, consolidating the start given to India by Rohit Sharma and Shubman Gill who put up a century stand inside 15 overs. Sri Lanka never appeared to threaten India in their pursuit of 374 and had it not been for an unbeaten century from their skipper right at the end, the islanders would have lost by an even fatter margin. Returning to the fold after the thumb injury, Rohit was at his most fluent and accomplished a fifty with Gill following suit, vindicating the management's decision to select ahead of the impressive Ishan Kishan.
