India-Sri Lanka T20Is (Sep 2017)

India won the only T20I of this series, and this won all Tests, ODIs and T20Is of the tour. This 9-0 sweep appears to be the first time that a visiting team has achieved this. Earlier, India won a T20I series 3-0 in Australia in early 2015 which was believed to be the only clean sweep by a visiting team in Australia in any format of cricket in a series of at least 3 matches:
