Sri Lanka wins toss and bats in 3rd ODI vs

The SL vs IND 3rd ODI is to be played today, August 27, at Pallekele International Cricket Stadium, Kandy.

With chances of winning looking sleek, Bhuvneshwar then joined Dhoni in the middle and played sensibly.

The right-arm pacer joined Dhoni (45*) after a sensational six-wicket haul by Sri Lankan spinner Akila Dananjaya, who snapped up six wickets in 20 deliveries, and left the visitors reeling.

That may be not the same for Sri Lanka after losing two ODI matches and the island nation may have been forced to make changes. Sri Lanka last won a bilateral series against India in 1997. Niroshan Dickwella and Dinesh Chandimal have opened the batting. Gave away only 4 runs from the first two overs.

"I thought it would be better to get back later on, if someone breaks the partnership", Dananjaya said of the decision to take him out of the attack after his eighth over.

Mendis was a rage in the media too with the army boy from little-known Moratuwa town who could not speak or understand English pushed to do one-on-ones with Indian TV channels using the aid of a translator. India recovered from the early setbacks to set up a title clash with Sri Lanka at the Queen's Park Oval and Dhoni was back at the helm.

WICKET! What a gem of a catch by Rohit Sharma at second slip!

At 28 for 2, the near-capacity crowd sensed another letdown. We knew if we played them out we would chase easily.

In his absence, Kapugedera was handed the captaincy for both the matches and the selectors have recalled Dinesh Chandimal and Lahiru Thirimanne for the next two matches.

Chandimal played through the pain before being dismissedWhat's the story? They had a good start. Last year-and-ahalf we haven't played as much limited- overs cricket and maybe that's the reason we haven't been as consistent in the shorter formats.

"If i had gone at No. 3, I would have still missed that ball because he was bowling that well. As there was very little batting to come we wanted to avoid a situation at the end where we need six or seven runs an over", Bhuvi said. Calm and composed, he accumulated runs in style. He eventually got to his half-century, his third successive 50 against India after 52 in Ranchi and 59 in Kolkata in 2014.
