India has done well to restrict Sri Lanka to a below-par score of 215 in the third ODI at Vishakapatnam. The Indian bowlers came back brilliantly in the match after Upul Tharanga and laid down a solid platform. The Indian spin duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Y Chahal ran through the Sri Lankan middle order before Hardik Pandya polished off the tail.
Indian skipper Rohit Sharma won the toss and elected to bat first “keeping the due factor in mind” in the series decider.
India has made one changes in the team and Kuldeep Yadav has been included in the side after Washington Sundar fall ill.
