Live Cricket Score India vs Sri Lanka 3rd Test Day 1: India win toss, elect to bat against Sri Lanka
India have never completed a whitewash in Sri Lanka and this is the best chance. They have a 2-0 lead over Sri Lanka going into the final Test match of the series in Kandy. Given that India have dominated Sri Lanka in the previous two encounters, a win in the third Test looks likely but rain in Kandy can play spoilsport. India’s batting will once again be the strong point though the bowlers have also looked in top form. Sri Lanka, battling injuries, will like to show some fight in the final Test before the two teams head for the limited overs affair from next week.
