Team India is looking forward for the 3rd ODI series against Sri Lanka on Sunday, 15 January 2023. The Men in Blue has won both ODI matches and now is aiming to win the third one. Cricket fans in India are now excited to watch the country win the series against Sri Lanka.
The thought of finishing the tour on a high note with a victory will be on the minds of Sri Lanka, who despite putting up some resistance were outwitted in the matches at Guwahati and Kolkata.
The preparation for India's hosting of the ODI World Cup in October and November 2023 has gone reasonably well. In Guwahati, Rohit, Shubman Gill, and Virat Kohli performed admirably with the bat.
In Kolkata, batter-wicketkeeper K. L. When he collaborated on crucial stands with Hardik Pandya, Axar Patel, and Kuldeep Yadav to defeat a 216-run chase, Rahul demonstrated his ability to be a dependable batter at number five.
It will be interesting to see if India can try something new in Thiruvananthapuram by starting Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav in place of the established players. Kuldeep, Mohammed Siraj, and Umran Malik's bowling performances have been outstanding in their ability to confuse the Sri Lankan batters.
Sri Lanka, on the other hand, has shone, albeit in spots. Pathum Nissanka made 72 in Guwahati, Dhananjaya de Silva made 47 off 40 balls, and Dasun Shanaka smashed an unbeaten 102. Kusal Mendis and rookie Nuwanidu Fernando performed admirably in Kolkata, but despite some impressive lower-order hits, Sri Lanka's batting fell short of expectations.
