Sri Lanka won the toss and chose to bat first in the third ODI at the Pallekele cricket stadium in Kandy. The hosts made two changes to their side with Dinesh Chandimal and Lahiru Thirimanne making a comeback to the team in place of Upul Tharanga and Danushka Gunathilaka. India, on the other hand, went unchanged in the third ODI, keeping the winning combination intact.

Virat Kohli was quite happy with the outcome of the toss as bowling first has been favorable for the team in the ongoing series. Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah gave India a great start with two early wickets in the first ten overs. Dinesh Chandimal and Lahiru Thirimanne stabilized the innings for the hosts and building a partnership with the team. Chandimal scored 36 before giving his wicket to Pandya. Thirimanne played a slow but solid innings of 80 for the hosts to take them to a respectable total.

For India, Bumrah was the pick of the bowlers again as he took 5/27 in his 10 overs. Angelo Matthews played a sloppy reverse sweep to give away his wicket to Kedar Jadhav. Although the rain stopped play in the 47th over, the team were back quickly to play the remaining 3 overs. The hosts were restricted to 217/9  in 50 overs.

India needs  218  runs in 50 overs.
