- India vs Sri Lanka – 3rd ODI match will be played in Colombo today
- India has captured the series by winning two matches, now the intention will be a clean sweep
- Colombo’s pitch report and weather conditions will also decide the direction and condition of the match
Today the third ODI match is to be played between India and Sri Lanka in Colombo. The Indian team arrived here with many young players as most of the senior players are present to play the Test series in England. In such a situation, it was expected that the Sri Lankan team would give some competition to India in the ODI series but after winning two consecutive ODIs, India have taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in this three-match series and now the youth led by Shikhar Dhawan. The team will go for a 3-0 clean sweep in the series.
Team India defeated Sri Lanka by 7 wickets in the first ODI match. Whereas in the second ODI there was an exciting match. A match that fans will hardly ever forget. Sri Lanka scored 275 runs for the loss of 9 wickets in that match, but the Indian team, who came out to answer, had lost their 7 wickets within 193 runs. Deepak Chahar (69 not out) and to some extent, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, who supported him on the pitch, did the job of converting the seemingly sure defeat into victory. Both helped India win by 3 wickets in 49.1 overs.
How will Colombo’s pitch in the third ODI today (IND vs SL 3rd ODI Colombo pitch report)
All three matches of this ODI series are to be held at R Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, so some pitches were prepared in the middle here. If we look at the statistics of the first and second ODI matches, it is clear that it can rain here anytime. Once again the fans can expect a score above 250. With India chasing the target here in two consecutive ODIs, the team would like to bowl first if they win the toss. Once again rain can be seen here on Friday. Considering the attitude of the pitch and India has now won the series, Team India can also think of trying some other players who were sitting on the bench outside till now.

1. Sri Lanka vs Bangladesh (2019) – Score 314/8 and 223 – Sri Lanka won
