Colombo, January 24 at 10:00 AM IST
After securing another thumping win by 175 runs on touring Ireland A, the hosts Sri Lanka would be looking to seal the series with one more win when both the sides will come face to face for the third unofficial ODI. Both the sides have reached Colombo for the remaining three games and will reload tomorrow for the third game.
Sri Lanka leads the series by 2-0 after securing 60 runs win in the first ODI followed by 175 runs thumping win in the second ODI. The hosts have completely dominated Ireland A in all three departments. After scoring back to back 300+ runs, they have bowled out Ireland on both the occasions. While this is a must-win game for Ireland A to stay alive in the contest, looking at the current scenario, Sri Lanka would be hoping for a complete tour whitewash.
Ireland has failed to manage a single win so far on the tour. The tour started with the practice game against Sri Lanka Board President’s XI that ended in a draw, the first Test was won by Sri Lanka by 10 wickets while the second Test ended in a draw.
