A ruthless Team India will look to complete a whitewash in the ODI series when they will face Sri Lanka in the 3rd and final ODI at Greenfield International Stadium, Thiruvananthapuram. The hosts took an unassailable 2-0 lead after registering a 4-wicket win at Eden Gardens. KL Rahul starred with the bat, while Kuldeep Yadav was the top performer with the ball. Meanwhile, Sri Lanka will play for pride and would be hoping to end the tour on a high note.
The surface at the Greenfield International Stadium has supported bowlers in the past. However, once the shine of the new ball fades, batters tend to enjoy the surface. Again, due could be a decisive factor so, the skipper winning the toss may elect to field first.
