Fantasy Tips of The Day
Rohit Sharma has already collected 100 runs for the series. When he last batted at the Greenfield International Stadium, he scored 63* off 56 (5 fours and 4 sixes).
Kuldeep Yadav and Mohammed Siraj each bagged a three-for in the previous game and were the captain and vice-captain of the Ultimate Team respectively.
Mohammed Shami has taken only one wicket at 6.43 RPO in his last 3 ODIs.
For India, Umran Malik, KL Rahul, and Siraj have been a part of the Ultimate Team in both matches.
For Sri Lanka, only Kasun Rajitha has made the Ultimate Team on both occasions.
It is quite striking to discover that both sides have been pretty even in terms of boundary-hitting. While India have smashed 74, Sri Lanka have whacked 73.
By picking 23 wickets, seamers from both sides have generated more points in this series as compared to the spinners, who have taken only 6.
