Virat Kohli-led team India has wiped out Sri Lanka after defeating them in the whole series of One Day Internationals, Test, and T-20.

Team India won the last and only T-20 match against Sri Lanka on 6 September. With this India has made a world record by winning all 9 matches in the entire tour.

And now a paper has been recovered from the dressing room that was left intact in their dressing room.

The paper revealed all the weaknesses and strength of Sri Lankan player and how to tackle them.

India will play against Australia from 17th September.

India and Australia are both on 117 points with the Steve Smith-led side ahead on decimal points. A win for either side by a margin of 4-1 or better will see it move to number one position.
