This is the seventh consecutive win of "men in blue" against Sri Lanka in India's T20.

Sandeep Patil has added fuel to the fire about who the better batsman amongst Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli is.

"I'm sure Virat' going to comeback from break and score lots of runs in South Africa but when we talk about limited overs cricket this year, Rohit has been unbelievable".

Australia opener Aaron Finch moved up a rung, displacing Virat Kohli to take the top spot.

Kohli slipped to third position after missing the series due to personal commitments. Pakistan remain at the top spot with 124 points as of December 25, 2017.

India, on the other hand, played six T20 worldwide series in 2017.

In the previous two matches, Sri Lanka were handed a heavy 93-run defeat in the series opener in Cuttack and equalled their longest losing streak (having lost seven-in-a-row) in T20Is with their 88-run loss in Indore. However, MS Dhoni was seen giving some tips to the few Sri Lankan players even as the other players were busy celebrating the series victory. For India, Manish Pandey (32 off 29 balls), Shreyas Iyer (30 off 32 balls) and captain Rohit Sharma (27 off 20 balls) proved to be crucial in the end.

Similarly, Imad has moved up to become the top-ranked bowler as Jasprit Bumrah missed the final match of the series after finishing wicketless in the opening two games to slip to third place.

Among the bowlers, Indian leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal's eight wickets in the series have helped him move up 14 slots to reach 16th position while Hardik Pandya (up 40 places to joint 39th) and Kuleep Yadav (up 48 places to 64) have also moved northwards after taking six wickets each.
