Riding on skipper Virat Kohli's sublime 131 and Rohit Sharma's quick-fire 104, India thumped Sri Lanka by 168 runs in the 4th One-Day International at R. Premadasa Stadium, Colombo yesterday (31).

With this loss, Sri Lanka's direct qualification to Cricket World Cup to be held in England in 2019, is in doubt.

Kohli and Rohit's 219-run partnership propelled the visitors to 375 for 5. It was the highest ODI total to be scored in Sri Lanka by a visiting side.

MS Dhoni, who was playing his 300th ODI, remained not out on 49 and comeback man Manish Pandey scored his second ODI fifty as they built together a 101-run partnership for the 6th wicket off 12.2 overs.

In reply, Sri Lanka never looked like getting close to India's imposing total and could only manage 207 all out in 42.4 overs with Angelo Mathews' 70-run knock being the only noteworthy batting performance.

The heavy defeat was also Sri Lanka's biggest at home in terms of runs.

India now lead the five-match series 4-nil and look set to complete another whitewash after routing Sri Lanka in the preceding three Tests.

Things are going from bad to worse for Sri Lanka, who needed to win at least two matches in the ongoing series to seal automatic qualification for the 2019 World Cup.

They can still directly qualify, provided the West Indies don't win more than three of their upcoming five ODIs against England.
