India have been thoroughly dominant throughout this series and will be out for the whitewash. Sri Lanka might hope for some let up from India who have pressed them hard.

To Win Match
India | Tie | Sri Lanka *betting tba
India might opt to rest a few top stars in this match having sealed victory in the series.
However, Virat Kohli might be one fighting to stay in as he chases more momentum.
Skipper Rohit Sharma might even be the more likely candidate for a rest.
Kuldeep Yadav put his hand up for a 2023 World Cup place last time out, and that will be something to keep an eye out for, especially with Yuzvendra Chahal also bowling well.
Sri Lanka were clearly missing Pathum Nissanka in their previous outing. However, all-rounder Nuwanidu Fernando put his hand up as an opening batter.
There have been individual highlights for Sri Lanka, but the team have struggled in India.
Sri Lanka will want to finish off on a high, though, despite their struggles and a dead rubber ODI could do the trick for them.
Wandindu Hasaranga hasn’t been as influential as he would like to have been but continues to be a danger man.
India should have this in the bag.
