PREDICTION #1 – SRI LANKA TO WIN

Why will Sri Lanka win vs India?

  • Sri Lanka will play this game fearlessly with a positive attitude and this can help them in giving a tough fight and turn out as winners in a close encounter.

Karunaratne 8 51 2

W Hasranga also bowled very well in the 2nd ODI, the leg-spinner brilliantly bowled 10 overs for just 28 runs.

  • India’s top order failed completely in the last game and the Lankan bowlers will look forward to capitalising this at maximum levels.
  • The Indian management will try new players in this upcoming fixture which can also help the experienced Sri Lankan side.

PREDICTION #2 – D SHANAKA TO BE THE TOP BATTER

Reasons:

  • D Shanka is ruling every cricket fan’s mind. The only in-form batter from the Lankan side can score a ton in this upcoming game.
  • The Sri Lankan Skipper is in great form; he has scored 234 runs so far in just 5 games against India. (t20 + odis)

PREDICTION #3 – W HASRANGA TO BE THE TOP BOWLER

  • Hasranga is one of the finest Lankan bowlers in the one day internationals. The 25 year old has amazing records when it comes to facing Sri Lanka. 
  • In 35 ODI innings,  he has 39 wickets with an economy of just 5.06.

India vs Sri Lanka Toss Prediction:

A total of 1 ODI has been played at the Greenfield Stadium where the team winning the toss has won.

According to our experienced cricket experts, D Shanaka is more likely to win the toss and elect to bowl first.

Pitch Report:

The Pitch at the Greenfield International Stadium, Thiruvanthpuram is going to aid both the pacers and spinners. The pitch here is going to be terrible for the batters. A lot of dew can be expected which is going to make it tough for the batters to settle themselves down. We can expect good swing movements in the starting whereas the slow pitch will help the spinners in turning the ball at maximum levels.

Weather Report:

Just like the previous two games the leading up contest has no possibility of rain. There will be suitable weather conditions expecting the temperature to reach a max of 31 degrees Celsius in the afternoon and dropping to a low of 23 degrees C in the evening. Hence, the weather won’t interfere with the game.

  •       Temperature: 31°C
  •       Precipitation: 0%
  •       Humidity: 56%
  •       Wind: 8 km/h
