Though MS Dhoni's 61-run knock helped India reach a respectable target that Sri Lanka reached comfortably, Rohit Sharma's debut game as captain will be remembered for its epic failure. However, from Bumrah's no-ball to Dhoni's hawkeye view, the quick ODI had everything to keep the Twitterati busy.
Here are the best tweets from the match.
Indian batting today...
Rohit Sharma, your wish came true!

We should have gone to South Africa to prepare for Dharamshala ODI— « vipul » (@AmSoDone) December 10, 2017
Should've done this! :(
Should have had a test match in Dharamshala instead of Nagpur or Delhi...Would have been ideal test for the batting line up for SA tour #INDvSL— Abhijith S (@Abhi_mania) December 10, 2017
There was one warrior who stood tall when others failed against the SL bowling attack today!
If ever there was a case to drop Dhoni from the ODI team to let in young blood, the case just got demolished today at Dharamshala— Aman Sharma (@AmanKayamHai_ET) December 10, 2017
And then this happened!
