After the big upset in the opening T20, MS Dhoni and his Men in Blue were clinical in their treatment of the Sri Lankan bowlers and batsmen in Vizag - wrapping up the series with a 9-wicket victory on Sunday.

Set 83 for victory, Shikhar Dhawan and Ajinkya Rahane got the hosts home in 13.5 overs.

The 82 by the Lankans was mostly courtesy one Indian off-spinner.

Ravi Ashwin claimed three wickets in his first seven deliveries and finished with 4-8, best by an Indian bowler in this format.

India have now won two T20 series already this year - against Australia and now Sri Lanka.

The team next move on to the Asia Cup in Bangladesh before the big World T20 at home in March and April.
