India vs Sri Lanka, 3rd ODI 2023 match preview

India will take on Sri Lanka in the third T20I of the three-match series at SCA Stadium in Rajkot on Saturday, January 7.

The Islanders won the final game and took the series to the next level. Kusal Mendis (52 runs from 31 balls) and skipper Dasun Shanaka (56 runs from 22 balls) shone for the visitors with the bat. On the other hand, India failed to finish the match despite Suryakumar Yadav and Axar Patel scoring 51 and 65 runs respectively.

The match in Pune also saw the debut of local boy Rahul Tripathi and the return of left-arm pacemaker Arshdeep Singh. Rahul had a poor outing with the bat, while Arshdeep miserably missed with the ball, taking five shots off the ball.

Indian captain Hardik Pandya seemed dissatisfied with his team’s overall performance, saying in the post-match presentation, “Both the bowling and batting, the power play hurt us. We made basic mistakes that we shouldn’t be making at this level. Learning should be the most important thing we can master. You can have a bad day, but you shouldn’t stray from the basics.”

Now the final match in Rajkot will be a deciding series.
