Sri Lanka have failed to secure a direct qualification for the 2019 World Cup after losing four consecutive limited-overs cricket internationals to India. India rode on blistering centuries by Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma to thrash Sri Lanka by 168 runs in the fourth one-day international Thursday for a 4-0 lead in the five-match series. The batsmen shared 219 runs for the second wicket off just 168 balls to help India post an imposing 375-5 after the visitors elected to bat at the R. Premadasa stadium. Sri Lanka barely put up a fight after losing four early wickets for 68 runs, folding up for 207 in 42.4 overs. (Video: N.Ananthanarayanan/Hindustan Times)
