Colombo, January 26 at 10:00 AM IST
The scoreline reads 3-0 and the hosts Sri Lanka would be looking for a complete whitewash with the two remaining games to be played tomorrow and on Tuesday. Both Sri Lanka and Ireland will reload tomorrow for the fourth unofficial ODI at Colombo. The clash is scheduled to get underway at 10: 00 AM IST.
Sri Lanka leads the five-match series by 3-0 with the help of 60 runs win in the first game followed with massive 175 runs win in the second ODI and 8 wickets win in the third ODI. In the third ODI, Ireland elected to bat first after winning the toss. With the help of a well constructed century from the skipper Harry Tector and crucial 86 runs knock from S Getkate, Ireland posted 268/6 on the board. Finishing at 3-45, Isuru Udana was the pick of the bowler for the hosts.
Coming to chase, Sri Lanka easily achieved the target in 31.1 overs with 8 wickets in hand, courtesy M Bhanuka (113 not out) and A Fernando (89).
Earlier, Sri Lanka sealed the two-match test series by 1-0 after the second game ended in a draw. Seeing the current run of the hosts, it will be a tough road for Ireland to avoid the clean sweep. The visitors have failed to secure a single win so far on the tour.
