Mohammad Siraj’s excellent fast bowling, which struck four times in his 10 overs to put the opposition out of contention, caused Sri Lanka to fall.

When Sri Lanka was all out for pitiful 73 in just 22 overs, it was clear how far behind the other team they were. In the history of men’s ODIs, this victory margin by runs was the largest ever. Both Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammad Shami contributed a few wickets.
