SL vs IND 3rd ODI: Possible Playing 11 of Sri Lanka


SL Playing 11: Sri Lanka will take on India in the third and final ODI of the series here at R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo. The hosts are low in confidence after a narrow loss in the last game. They dominated the match for most of the part and looked set to end their losing streak. But Deepak Chahar’s brilliance with the bat took the match away from them. With the fate of the series already decided, SL will look to take positives from the last match and end their long losing streak. India leads the head-to-head record over Sri Lanka in ODIs 93-56.

Team News

  • Sri Lanka captain Dasun Shanaka has stated that Kasun Rajitha is injured. Lahiru Kumara will be the likeliest option to replace him.

SL batters performed a lot better in the last match and that will be a big positive for them. They had plenty of positives as batsmen looked to play a longer innings. Asalanka and Avishka Fernando struck fifties and team will expect them to get a big hundred this time. Bowling was good for most of the part. Wanindu Hasaranga proved his worth with some quality legspin bowling and he will be a threat to Indian batters once again. Chamika Karunaratne is having an impressive series so far.
