It was yet another crushing victory for India as they thrashed SL by 168 runs. Rohit and Kohli took center stage and propelled India towards a mammoth total. However, it was Dhoni who took the limelight, as he sent Twitter into meltdown, with his very own "Dhoni Review System".
Indian skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat first handing Shardul Thakur his first ODI cap and he also brought in Kuldeep Yadav and Manish Pandey in the playing XI in the place of Yuzvendra Chahal, Kedar Jadhav, and Bhuvneshwar Kumar. On the other hand, Sri Lanka gave entry to two new faces Dilshan Munaweera and Malinda Pushpakumara while Wanidu Hasaranga also made his way for the fourth ODI.
Here are the best tweets from the game :

Why need Umpires when you have Dhoni behind the stumps? #DhoniReviewSystem
This defeat had other implications for SL too
AB de Villiers or Virat Kohli - who will score more runs?
