The third and final match of the three-match ODI series between India and Sri Lanka will be played on July 23 at the R Premadasa Cricket Stadium in Colombo. Under the leadership of Shikhar Dhawan, Team India captured the series 2-0 and will take the field in the third match with the intention of a clean sweep. At the same time, Sri Lanka will go with the intention of reducing the margin of defeat in the series by winning the third match. Shikhar Dhawan would most likely make some changes in the playing XI in the third ODI.
Shikhar Dhawan-led Team India might test their bench strength in the third match. Devdutt Padikkal can make his ODI debut for Team India. He can play in the playing XI along with Shikhar Dhawan as an opener. Prithvi Shaw batted brilliantly in the first match. In the first ODI of the series, he scored 43 runs in 24 balls and then scored 13 runs in the second match. There is every possibility of Ishan Kishan being included in the playing XI in the third ODI as well.
