MS Dhoni was the major topic of discussion on Twitter as he pulled off yet another brilliant stumping to remove Upul Tharanga when he was at 95. The Twitterati then showered praise on Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer who batted brilliantly and ensured a win for India and wraped up the series 2-1.
Here are the funny tweets from the match:
Even though Sri Lanka lost a wicket early, Upul Tharanga continued to punish the Indian bowlers!

“Well Played Tharanga”
Please Surprise me Everyday #INDvSL
Upul Tharanga taking on Harthik Pandya 5 consecutive boundaries in a over. 4,4,4,4,4,0— Azzam Ameen (@AzzamAmeen) December 17, 2017
But when Tharanga reached 95, he was struck by the "Lightning" storm!
Yeah, this makes it easy to analyze the match!

ICC should add this to their new set of rules!
Then came the major blunder from Bhuvi!
Shocking by Bhuvi! A run-out opportunity but he fails to collect the ball cleanly. What was he doing? #INDvSL— Sports Express (@Xpress_Sports) December 17, 2017
How could you miss that run out Bhuvi ? Blunder #INDvSL— Gagan Thakur (@gagan_gt) December 17, 2017
Rohit Sharma started off well for India!

Well, that escalated quickly!
SIX and OUT. Shahid Afridi will be proud of that. #INDvSL— Sameer Allana (@HitmanCricket) December 17, 2017
Rohit Sharma is consistently inconsistent, so you are wrong!
Rohit Sharma is a man of many talents. Consistency is not one of them. Just saying. #INDvSL— Shaswat Mishra (@Shaswat09) December 17, 2017

So did Shikhar Dhawan!
Shikhar Dhawan becomes the second batsman to score 1000-plus runs against Sri Lanka in a calendar year in ODIs after Virat Kohli (also in 2017). #INDvSL— Umang Pabari (@UPStatsman) December 17, 2017
Have to agree with this guy!
“GABBAR” Shikhar Dhawan has played so many match winning innings in limited overs format till now, still some people criticise him. He is the only cricketer to win 2 consecutive “golden bats” at ICC Champions Trophy! #IndVSL— ROHIT (@TheRohitGulati) December 17, 2017
What a solid win to wrap up the series!
