Highlights India vs Sri Lanka, 3rd ODI in Pallekele, cricket score: Visitors win by 6 wickets, clinch series

23:06 (IST)

That's it from us in our coverage of the third ODI between India and Sri Lanka, with the visitors wriggling out of yet another tight situation, and making the 218-run chase look easy to complete a six-wicket win, and clinching the five-match series 3-0. The remaining matches have now been reduced to dead rubbers, though it allows Kohli and Shastri room to experiment with their squad. 

We'll return on Thursday for our coverage of the fourth one-dayer. For now, it is time for me, Amit, to sign off on behalf of my colleague Vaibhav, as well as our contributors Chetan Narula and Umang Pabari. Goodnight!

Virat Kohli (Indian captain): Small targets are always tricky. If it happens to you two-three times, it isn't an issue. People make issues out of it. Today it wasn't a collapse to be honest. Couple of wickets, you wouldn't get wickets on eight out of ten times. Couple of batsmen applied themselves really well, especially Rohit. Bumrah's got 11 wickets in 3 games, he's bowled really really well. He's among our top short format bowlers. (On making changes to the team in the remainder of the series) Yes definitely. We'll look to give some guys a go and see where there game stands. We can afford to make some changes now. 

22:55 (IST)

Chamara Kapugedera (Sri Lankan captain): Thought it was a good wicket. Like the last game it will grip a bit. Things didn't go to our plans. We have to go back to our drawing board and see what we can do. 260-275 would have been a challenging score. (On captaincy) I enjoyed it. It was pressure, it was first time. 

22:51 (IST)

Jasprit Bumrah (MoM): It's always good when you get a break, so you can work on your strengths, spend some time with your family. Was a different wicket this time, there was seam movement. (On being the first Indian pacer with a five-wicket haul since 2014) I didn't know that.

After 45.1 overs,India 218/4 ( Rohit Sharma 124 , MS Dhoni (W) 67)

Dhoni guides a full toss from Vishwa Fernando towards the deep midwicket region, collecting the winning single as the ball lands safely beyond the fielders' reach. The resumption of play was a mere formality, with Rohit Sharma and MS Dhoni having sealed the game in their favour with a mammoth unbeaten fifth-wicket stand. In the end, they needed seven more deliveries to score the remaining eight runs.

22:38 (IST)

This is India's seventh consecutive win against Sri Lanka while chasing in ODIs. The last time they lost an ODI match against Sri Lanka while chasing happened in 2013 at Kingston.

INDIA WIN BY SIX WICKETS! Dhoni guides a full-toss from Fernando towards deep midwicket region after a top-edge, and once again collects the winning run, as India clinch the five-match series 3-0!

3rd ODI preview: Having already secured a 2-0 lead, India will look to seal the series against Sri Lanka in the third of the five-match ODI series at the Pallekele International Cricket Stadium in Pallekele on Sunday.

India took a 2-0 lead in the series after pulling off a three-wicket victory from the jaws of defeat in the last match.

The visitors had suffered a batting collapse, losing seven wickets in the space of 22 runs to be reduced to 131/7 at one stage thanks to excellent bowling by Sri Lanka off-spinner Akila Dananjaya, who returned a six-wicket haul.

But former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni (45 not out) and tailender Bhuvneshwar Kumar (53 not out) put together 100-run partnership to help the visitors chase down the target.

Openers Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan had put India off to a fine start with a stand of 109 runs and the visitors will bank them and Dhoni to continue their fine form.

The Indians will also hope that batsmen KL Rahul, Kedar Jadhav and skipper Virat Kohli gets back to form after all three failed to reach double figures in the last match.

In the bowling department, pacers Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar, alongside spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Axar Patel, will look to put breaks on the Sri Lankan batting which has failed to pose a threat in the previous matches.

Sri Lanka will hope batsmen Dinesh Chandimal and Lahiru Thirimanne, who have been called up for the remaining ODIs as a replacement for Danushka Gunathilaka and captain Upul Tharanga bring some positives into the side.

Stand-in captain Chamara Kapugedera along with Niroshan Dickwella and Milinda Siriwardana will look to play a key role in the batting department.

Among the bowlers, Dananjaya will look to continue his fine form.

India: Virat Kohli (C), Rohit Sharma, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (WK), Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kedar Jadhav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Lokesh Rahul, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Ajinkya Rahane, Manish Pandey, Kuldeep Yadav, Shardul Thakur.
