Wanindu Hasaranga is a good captaincy choice for this match.
The Indian side produced a sensational performance in the 2nd ODI to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match ODI series against Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka scored 275/9 in their allotted 50 overs, but the Indian side chased the target down with 3 wickets and 5 balls to spare.
India have already sealed the series and will look to whitewash the Sri Lankan side in their own backyard. On the other hand, Sri Lanka will be looking to post a morale-boosting win on the board in the final ODI of the series.
