After mesmerizing chase in the 3rd ODI Indian team will play their last ODI of the 3 match series against Sri Lanka on Thursday, 22nd July at R.Premadasa Stadium, Colombo from 3:00 PM IST.
To maintain the record of winning ODI streak from 2012 and to white wash the SL team Shikhar Dhawan and co. will look forward to clinch this last match. While Sri Lankan team will play with little confidence as they dominated Indian batting line up in the second match but it was all heroics by Deepak Chahar who turned up the match in slog overs with the bat.
Few changes can be seen in both the teams as India would like to play their benched players or give debut to someone while Sri Lanka would change their strength especially bowling side. Sanju Samson may get chance to play his first ODI on the tour while Rahul Chahar too waiting in the list.
Pitch Report: The recent weather forecasts of Colombo have been deceiving but for what it’s worth, thunderstorms are expected on Friday. Even as the pitch is expected to play slower than the previous games and aid the spinners a bit more, it should continue to remain friendly for the batters.
