SL vs IND 3rd ODI Match Preview

Sri Lanka:

Sri Lanka loses one more series as they were defeated in the last match by three wickets. They had almost won the match but lost control towards the end, and the game slipped through their hands. Avishka Fernando has been brilliant this series and scored fifty in the last match. Minod Bhanuka and Dhananjaya have also batted decently. Asalanka has stabilized the innings in the middle-order, and Karunaratne provided brilliant finishes in both matches. 

After a horrible performance in the first match, the bowling department bowled well in the last match and almost won the match for SL. Hasaranga bowled brilliantly and picked up three wickets. Rajitha, Sandakan, and Shanaka managed to pick up one wicket each. Sri Lanka needs to win the last match to save themselves from the humiliation of being whitewashed at their home.


India’s streak of winning the ODI series in SL remains intact as they won in the thriller last game by three wickets. Prithvi Shaw, Shikhar Dhawan, and Ishan Kishan, after a brilliant inning in the first match, fell early in the previous game. Manish Pandey and Surya Kumar Yadav batted brilliantly in the middle-order, and Krunal Pandya also added some valuable runs. In the end, Deepak Chahar scored an unbeaten fifty and led the team to victory.

The bowler’s performance has been constant from the first match. Deepak Chahar and Yuzvendar Chahal have been the consistent wicket-takers for India. Bhuvneshwar also bowled well, picking up three wickets. India would be eyeing for the whitewash by winning the final match of the series.
