5th ODI: India restrict Sri Lanka to 238 runs

06 September, 2017, 13:18 | Author: Glenda Knight
  • India’s team captain Virat Kohli plays a shot

After that, they will play for one and only t20 match. "We will address it and tell them that this is a bunch of 20-25 people, who will make the probable-list for the World Cup and everyone has an equal opportunity to be tested at different stages", Kohli said at the end of the ODI series against Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka can once again call on the services of their most consistent seamer for the previous year Suranga Lakmal who has recovered from the injury sustained in the Test series. The visitors have been in dominating form ever since they landed in Sri Lanka. Niroshan Dickwella approaches many of his innings like he is playing a T20 anyway.

Tharanga will have to be spot on with his team combination on Wednesday as another defeat will only bring more disappointment to the Sri Lankan fans, who have already expressed their frustration in unruly ways.

Kohli notched uop his latest ton to lead his team to a 5-0 series sweep of Sri Lanka in Colombo.

Who knows what Lasith Malinga is thinking? "But we have to embrace that change", he said.

As of now, it is believed that Shardul is retained and will play the following two ODIs in Bleed Blue.

The captain also praised Jasprit Bumrah for his impeccable performance in the series taking a total of 15 wickets.

"He has been our most effective short-format bowler in the last 18 months".

Cardinals could face Jacoby Brissett at QB in Week 2
The team has Tom Brady and it's anyone's guess how long he plans to continue playing, but as long as he's around, it's his show. Shipping off Dorsett - sunk costs in the eyes of the franchise - looked to be in the cards for a while.

With skipper Upul Tharanga making his way into the team, having missed the last two matches owing to his suspension for slow-overate, Dilshan Munaweera, who made his ODI debut, on Thursday is likely to sit out. Whatever the case, Sri Lanka have only picked four specialist batsmen, so the side will be full of bowling options.

Angelo Mathews joined Lahiru Thirimanne with Sri Lanka three down for 63 and the pair added 122 runs for the fourth wicket off 177 deliveries, giving Sri Lanka a platform to build a competitive score.

Seam bowler Isuru Udana has also got a node for the lone match against the Virat Kohli-led side, with Kusal Mendis being rested as the management believes he is suffering from mental fatigue, ESPNcricinfo reported. The wristspinners may also keep Axar Patel out of the XI.

It is raining heavily in Colombo.

Sri Lanka has played under the three captains in this Series so far. Their most recent victory was in February past year, in Pune. They need to lose five out of six matches to allow Sri Lanka direct entry.

Sangakkara's 78 at Nagpur remains the highest score by an individual, followed by Kohli's 77 in the ICC World Twenty20 final in 2014.
