Match Preview

With two consecutive wins and a clean sweep on the trot, hosts Sri Lanka would go as one of the hot favorites for the upcoming contest and are likely to go full throttle in the much-coveted final. Kusal Mendis (119) and Avishka Fernando (127) stitched match-winning performance at a time when the wickets kept crumbling for the hosts at regular intervals and eventually, the duo helped Sri Lanka post in excess of 340 runs on board. In the second innings, Sri Lanka came up with one of their finest ODI exhibition off late with Lakshan Sandakan (3/57), Wanindu Hasaranga (3/30), and Nuwan Pradeep (2/37) grabbing impressive numbers to their name.

Meanwhile, West Indies would be disappointed with the way they have performed in the initial two matches which cost them the 3-match series. In spite of Shai Hope, Roston Chase, Sheldon Cottrell contributing heavily in the past few matches, the team faltered in getting the better of the rivals under crunch moments. Skipper Kieron Pollard had a poor run with the bat which could also be attributed as one of the causes of their defeat.

Teams Preview

Sri Lanka

Openers Avishka Fernando and Dimuth Karunaratne have been in a good nick in the ongoing series. The duo will look to maximize on the boundary count in the first few overs owing to field restrictions. Fernando, in particular, will be a player to keep an eye upon considering he scored a century in the last outing. Kusal Perera was dismissed cheaply in the previous game and would be craving to get the textbook shots to display at Pallekele. Kusal Mendis (119) and Thisara Perera (36) outclassed the Windies’ bowlers in the middle-overs and are likely to don a similar role in the dead-rubber duel.

Bowling wise, spinners Wanindu Hasaranga (3/30) and Lakshan Sandakan (3/57) tore apart the Windies’ top and middle order in the previous match. Pacer Nuwan Pradeep (2/37) cleared the tail-end in the last ODI and would be spearheading the attack for the hosts. The bounce offered at Pallekele could come of great help to Karunaratne & Co.

Sri Lanka Actual Playing XI:

Dimuth Karunaratne, Avishka Fernando, Kusal Perera, Dhananjaya de Silva, Kusal Mendis, Nuwan Pradeep, Thisara Perera, Lakshan Sandakan, Isuru Udana, Angelo Mathews, Wanidu Hasaranga

Sri Lanka Predicted Playing XI

Angelo Mathews, Isuru Udana, Thisara Perera, Nuwan Pradeep, Dhananjaya de Silva, Dimuth Karunaratne (c), Kusal Perera (wk), Kusal Mendis, Wanindu Hasaranga, Avishka Fernando, Lakshan Sandakan

West Indies

Shai Hope will carry the onus of scoring the bulk of runs for West Indies in the must-win encounter. The wicket-keeper batsman scored a century and a half-century in the first and second ODIs respectively and along with southpaw Darren Bravo will play a crucial role with the bat in scoring in the powerplays. Roston Chase and Nicholas Pooran have batted decently in the ongoing series and with Pollard joining them in the middle-order, the trio could be backed to churn the required amount of runs between 25-35 overs.

Bowling wise, pacer Alzarri Joesph (3/57) and Sheldon Cottrell (4/67) were impressive with their pace and swing respectively and will be backed to put up similar numbers in the third ODI. Jason Holder and Keemo Paul were expensive in the overs they bowled and would be itching to grab a wicket or two at Pallekele.

West Indies Actual Playing XI:

Kieron Pollard, Darren Bravo, Sunil Ambris , Jason Holder, Nicholas Pooran, Sheldon Cottrell, Roston Chase, Shai Hope, Hayden Walsh Jr, Fabian Allen, Alzarri Joseph

It is going to be bright and sunny weather at Pallekele with the temperature hovering between 23-30 degrees Celsius. Excellent conditions for a game of cricket can be anticipated as there will be clear skies throughout.

Venue Details

The wicket at Pallekele Cricket Stadium is generally a high scoring one with 246 as the average first innings total. The sunny weather might help the batters throughout as there won’t be much of swing and seam movement. Bowlers would look to capitalize on the pace and bounce offered.

Toss Prediction

It will be ideal for the toss winning team to opt to bowl first on this wicket. In ODIs, 15 out of 24 matches played at this venue have been won by the team batting first and a similar outcome could be expected.

Winning Prediction

Windies haven’t been able to muster a sole win so far and would be low on confidence following their 161-run defeat in the second ODI. On the other hand, Sri Lanka has put up rip-roaring exhibitions in the ongoing series and would be looking to decimate the tourists and grab hold of the much-coveted series.

The Dimuth Karunaratne-led side has outwitted the Windies in batting and bowling units and would look to dominate the Caribbeans for one last time in the 50-over format.
