Hyderabad: India's stand-in skipper Virat Kohli on Sunday credited his bowlers for the series clinching six-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the third ODI, and said the home team's bowling unit dished out a "brilliant performance" to restrict the visitors to 242 here.

Chasing a modest 242, a clinical India produced a commanding batting display to overhaul the target with 35 balls to spare and take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the five-match series at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.

If the bowlers, led by Umesh Yadav (4-53) and Axar Patel (3-40), set up the win by restricting the visitors to 242 on a good batting track, then the Shikhar Dhawan (91 off 79 balls) inspired batting line-up did its job to make the opponents look ordinary yet again.
