In what appears to be a dead rubber, India and Sri Lanka will lock horns in the third and final One-Day International (ODI) at the Greenfield International Stadium in Thiruvananthapuram on Sunday. The hosts have an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series and will be open to experimenting with their playing XI to try out a few options in the lead-up to its preparations for the 2023 ICC World Cup to be held in India. As for the visitors, they too would be aiming for the same and notably to finish on a high, as a whitewash would be the last thing they would want. Here, we present the ideal Fantasy XI picks and probable XI, predictions, where to watch and other game details.
IND: Shubman Gill/Ishan Kishan, Rohit Sharma (c), Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (wk), Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Kuldeep Yadav, Umran Malik, Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj.
SL: Pathum Nissanka, Nuwanidu Fernando, Charith Asalanka, Dasun Shanaka (c), Dhnanjaya de Silva, Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Dunith Wellalage, Kusal Mendis (wk), Lahiru Kumara and Kasun Rajitha.
Batters: Kohli, Rohit, Shanaka (c) and Gill
Rohit and Gill will give the side a flawless start as openers, followed by Kohli's dominance at number three, while Shanka has been consistent at number four and is a perfect fit at the position. The latter's viscosity makes him the skipper.
Wicketkeeper: KL Rahul
Rahul is doing decently in the middle order over any other keeper and will continue to dominate in this department.
All-rounder: De Silva
He has the only lad who makes the list, mainly for his dominant spin abilities, and he can chip in with the bat if the need arises.
Bowlers: Siraj (vc), Malik, Kuldeep, Rajitha and Karunaratne
The bowling attack will be packed with pacers and seamers on a bowling-friendly track at this ground. While Kuldeep would be a must-have here, given how he has been re-evolving of late, the remaining four have been immensely influential with their fast bowling, while Siraj's impactfulness makes him Shanaka's deputy.
