His latest series win as a skipper came against Sri Lanka, where the Men in Blue thumped the visitors 3-0.

Rohit has been a part of 7 wins against the Island country as a team leader. He surpassed MS Dhoni and Virat Kohli, who led the team to win on 6 and 3 occasions.

In the last game against Lanka, the hosts were asked to field first after Sri Lanka won the toss in Dharamsala.

The visitors scored 146/5 in 20 overs, with skipper Dasun Shanaka accumulating an unbeaten 74 off 38 balls.

Chasing 147, Shreyas Iyer amassed 73 off 45 balls, laced with 9 fours and a six. He was in scintillating form, and Sri Lanka failed to breach his defence. The 27-year old registered a total of 204 runs and won the Player of the Series for his effort.
