West Indies square off against Sri Lanka in the third ODI match of the series. West Indies have already sealed the series and thus this game will be a dead rubber. West Indies have been extremely dominant in this entire tour and in the T20I series also, they had won 2-1. The match is slated to begin at 7:00 PM (IST)
West Indies are slowly gearing up for the ICC T20 World Cup in India in October. They have always been a very dominant T20I squad, having won 2 World Cups and are slowly being dominant in ODI too. Their biggest positive has been the sublime opening pair of Shai Hope and Evin Lewis. Jason Mohammed too has been a quality all-rounder. Evin Lewis scored a fantastic 103 in the last game and bagged the man of the match award. Jason Mohammed shone with the ball as he picked up 3 wickets.
On the other hand, a circumspect Sri Lanka have a lot on their plate. Though they were pretty decent in the last game, it was not enough to tackle the mighty West Indies. Their bowling looked below-par and their batting was quite good. Danushka Gunathalika is a great pick as he scored 96 in the previous game. Keeper batsman Dinesh Chandimal scored 71.
