India vs Sri Lanka Match Details

Match: India vs Sri Lanka, 3rd ODI | Sri Lanka tour of India 

Date: Sunday, 15 Jan 2023 

Time: 13:00 (GMT+5) / 13:30 (GMT+5.5) / 14:00 (GMT+6)

Format: ODI

Venue: Greenfield International Stadium, Thiruvananthapuram   

India vs Sri Lanka Preview

  • India won the first two games to take a 2-0 lead in the ODI series.
  • Players from India have so far scored a century and three fifties, while those from Sri Lanka have scored a century and two fifties.
  • While Sri Lankan bowlers have only taken 13 wickets thus far, Indian bowlers have taken 18 wickets (all out once).


The third and final One-Day International between India and Sri Lanka will take place on Sunday afternoon at the Greenfield International Stadium. India has already clinched the series after winning by a score of 67 runs in Guwahati on Tuesday and by a margin of four wickets in Kolkata on Thursday.   The game will start at 13:30 local time. 

India was in some difficulty during the game on Thursday, but they demonstrated their ability to come back and win in other circumstances. They will be sure that they can win 3-0.

The second ODI lost steam for Sri Lanka when they reduced India to 86-4 and were unable to grab another wicket for 20 overs. They have the players to trouble India, but we don’t believe they can win this last ODI.

India vs Sri Lanka Weather Report, Toss Prediction And Pitch Report

On the day of the match, Trivandrum will see cool, breezy weather with excellent playing conditions.

In this field, chasing is the optimal strategy because neither team will be aware of the playing conditions. In the game, both captains will attempt to bowl first.

The Greenfield pitch has historically been a bowler-friendly surface, giving pacers early swing and slowing down as the game goes on.

India Team News & Probable Playing XIs

Before the second ODI, India made one adjustment, replacing Yuzvendra Chahal with left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav. Yadav made a strong impression with a 3-51, so we anticipate keeping him for this decisive game. We do not anticipate any experimenting in India’s starting lineup this World Cup year.

India is the favourite to win this match.


There is always a potential that India will decide to rest some of their star players even if they have already won the series. But given that the World Cup is less than 10 months away, we anticipate that they will continue to choose the same batsmen and bowlers and acclimate them to their respective positions. In this ODI, Sri Lanka must seize opportunities; if they do, they may cause India greater issues than in the previous two. Overall, we anticipate that India’s batters will once again be too powerful, and we are betting on India to win this last ODI.
