The decider is here. The third and final ODI between India and Sri Lanka will be held tomorrow in Vizag. Sri Lanka destroyed India with the ball in the first ODI, while India returned the favour with the bat in the second ODI. The momentum is with India. But a closer look would suggest that Sri Lanka are more than capable of beating India once again. They just need to make early inroads into Indian batting line-up. So, who is the favourite for cricket betting? India it will be. But without Virat Kohli, they do not have the aura of an undisputable super team.
Preview – India
India will feel like back on track after the thumping win in the second ODI. But their middle order still have a fragile look. The absence of Kohli is very much evident in their aspect. If the openers fall cheaply, it will be a huge advantage for Sri Lanka. But Rohit Sharma is in red hot form. He is unlikely to all things to drift. Indian bowling has not been tested much. They will have to raise their performance if the match becomes too close.
Preview – Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka have a golden opportunity on their hands to salvage some pride and offer something for their long-suffering fans to cheer. But they have to produce their A game. More than a collective effort they need some stellar individual performances with both bat and ball. The good news for them is that all the players are fit and they can choose their best eleven. The pitch in Vizag is good for batting. So they need to score big.
