The third and final match of the three-match ODI series between India and Sri Lanka will be played on July 23 at the R Premadasa Cricket Stadium in Colombo. Team India led by Shikhar Dhawan captured the series 2-0. Team India takes the field in the third game with the intention of making a clean sweep. At the same time, Sri Lanka will look to reduce the margin of defeat in the series by winning the third match. Shikhar Dhawan wants to make some changes in the XI in the third ODI.
Devadut Padikkal can make his debut in ODIs
The Shikhar Dhawan-led Team India may allow their bench strength in the third game. Devadat Padikkal can play ODI for Team India. He can play as a starter with Shikhar Dhawan in Playing Eleven. Prithvi Shah batted superbly in the first match. In the first ODI of the series, he scored 43 off 24 balls. He scored 13 in the second game. In the third ODI, Ishaan Kishan has all the chances of joining the XI.
Chances are Sanju Samsoom will also make his debut
Sanju Samson may be allowed in Team India’s third ODI. Sanju Samson was having some trouble in the first game. It was for this reason that Ishaan got the chance to play Kishan playing XI. In the first ODI, Ishaan scored half-century in 33 balls and played a spectacular 59 runs. In the second game, he can only score 1 run but has every chance of getting another chance. Sanju Samson could be replaced by Manish Pandey. Pandey could not make more use of both the opportunities he had. Suryakumar Yadav is likely to get a chance in the playing XI.

Hardik Pandya and his brother, Krunal Pandya, can be named all-rounders in the XI. In the second ODI, Krunal made a significant contribution with the bat. He played a major innings of 35 runs. Deepak Chahar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar are likely to be fast bowlers in the XI. Deepak Chahar singled out Team India for the win in the second ODI. He won the series with an unbeaten knock of 69 and won India by three wickets.
Rahul Chahar may get a chance
As a spinner, Kuldeep Yadav can be fed back into the playing XI. Yuvvendra Chahal can be rested for the third ODI. He has bowled spectacularly in both ODIs. Chahal got 2/52 in the first ODI and 3/50 in the second ODI. Rahul Chahar can be included in Team XI. He was heavily influenced by his bowling in the IPL.
