The stage is set for a perfect final as both India and Sri Lanka are at par in the 3 Match ODI series. After the debacle in Dharamshala, Rohit Sharma and his men settled the odds at Mohali.
Now as action moves to Vizag for the final ODI which is a series decider. Rohit Sharma wouldn’t want to lose the series as a captain after a staggering double ton in the Mohali ODI.
Sri Lanka too would want to recreate the Dharamshala magic. It’s a contest where both new captains have their prestige at stake and they would put in everything to win it. The Indian openers looked in great touch in the second ODI. While Shikhar Dhawan got a half century, Rohit Sharma stunned the world with his third double ton. Shreyas Iyer too performed superbly in what was just his second ODI.
Now India would want to capitalise the momentum gained at Mohali. Having defeated the visitors mercilessly in the last game would make India carry great morales in the third ODI.
In the last match the young all rounder Washington Sundar got his maiden ODI cap and even picked up his first wicket. Seems like he would get another game at Vizag too.
Here’s what the predicted XI looks like for the series decider Rohit Sharma (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Dinesh Karthik, MS Dhoni, Hardik Pandaya, Ajinkya Rahane, Dinesh Karthik, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Washington Sundar, Jasprit Bumrah
