India haven't lost a single bilateral series in 2017. Let that sink in. Another series to go. Can they continue their rich vein of form in the T20s? Join us on 20 December to find out. Tell then, it is time to say good bye. Cheers!

Lot of hardwork needed

20:21 (IST)

Rohit Sharma, India captain: Terrific comeback after the first game in Dharamshala. We showed a lot of character. This has been the hallmark of this team, whenever we are put under the pressure we have comeback strongly. Very proud of the boys. First game was a bit testing as a captain, because we didn't have many runs on the board. Second game was good for me to settle into captain's role. Good to have such bowlers, whenever the ball is thrown to them, they give wickets. Batting of Shreyas Iyer was positive, he showed a lot of intent. From the outside it didn't look like he has played only a couple of games. Whenever the spin-twins have played together they have played well, they have brought us back into the game. This time has shown again and again that whenever we are under the pressure we have done well. Ready for the overseas run now. Excited to lead the young side for the upcoming T20Is.  

20:18 (IST)

Shikhar Dhawan, Man of the Series (168 runs at an average of 84): I feel I am batting at my best and that is why my consistency has gone up. (On what has he worked on) A bit on technique and on the guard. Once you keep scoring, it becomes easier to handle situation and that is why my success rate has gone up. Whenever I score fifty, I go for a hundred and the conversion rate is good as well. 

20:14 (IST)

Kuldeep Yadav, Man of the Match: We are were looking wickets in the middle over and I got two wickets in an over that changed the momentum for us. Wicket was turning and working on my length. When I wasn't getting games, I was working my fitness and my bowling.

20:12 (IST)

Kuldeep Yadav is awarded the Man of the Match

20:11 (IST)

Sri Lanka captain, Thisara Perera: It is really disappointing for us. We played well in the first game, and it was a good chance to beat India in India, but our bowlers didn't execute the plans well in the last couple of games. We got good start today, but the middle order didn't capitalise and so we couldn't put enough runs on the board.

20:05 (IST)

What a season this has been for India. They have pocketed each of the six odi bilateral series they have played this year. That's some form.

Dhawan wins it for India but the crowd is deliriously chanting for Dhoni. The man does have a following here.

Highlights

India vs Sri Lanka, 3rd ODI at Visakhapatnam: India win the Vizag ODI by eight wickets. Karthik ends with a boundary to the cover fence.

Preview: Rohit Sharma will aim to maintain his superb batting form and win his first series as captain when India take on Sri Lanka in the third and final One-Day International (ODI) at the Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium on Sunday.

After a thumping seven-wicket loss against Sri Lanka in the first match, Rohit created history by becoming the first batsman to score a third double century in ODIs as India bounced to back to win by 141 runs and level the series at 1-1.

If Sri Lanka do pull of a win on Sunday, it will be their first bilateral ODI series win in India.

India on the other hand, will aim to keep up their superb form at home that has seen them win every series since the defeat to South Africa in October 2015.

If India's past record at this venue is anything to go by, they have an excellent chance to keep their unbeaten run going.

The hosts have lost only one of the seven matches they have played at this ground and a generally unimpressive Sri Lanka will have to be at the top their game to get past the Indians.

Placed second in the ODI rankings, India will look to Rohit to lead from the front and give the side a flying start. Along side the skipper all eyes will be on fellow opener Shikhar Dhawan, who scored a brilliant half-century in the previous match to dominate the innings from the beginning.

One-down batsman Shreyas Iyer who scored his maiden ODI half-century in the previous match will only add strength to the formidable Indian batting line-up along with Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Hardik Pandya, Dinesh Karthik and Manish Pandey .

The bowling will however depend on new ball bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah. Wrist spinner Yuzvendra Chahal who bagged a three-wicket haul in the last match will be the key in the middle overs to provide crucial breaks and stem the flow of runs.

For Sri Lanka, captain Thisara Perera will look to re-work his team's strategies to help the visitors return to winning ways.

Perera will also be a vital player in the bowling department along side Angelo Mathews, Suranga Lakmal and Akila Dananjaya who have failed to trick the Indian batsmen and pick up key wickets.

For the eighth ranked ODI side, the batting will heavily rely on experienced campaigners Upul Tharanga and Angelo Mathews. Sri Lanka will also hope Danushka Gunathilaka, Niroshan Dickwella and Asela Gunaratne to get amongst runs.

Squad:

India: Rohit Sharma (captain), Dinesh Karthik, Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wk), Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Manish Pandey, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Shreyas Iyer, Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Ajinkya Rahane, Siddarth Kaul, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel.

Sri Lanka: Thisara Perera (captain), Upul Tharanga, Angelo Mathews, Suranga Lakmal, Lahiru Thirimanne, Nuwan Pradeep, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Danushka Gunathilaka, Sachith Pathirana, Akila Dananjaya, Asela Gunaratne, Dhananjaya de Silva, Kusal Perera, Dushmantha Chameera, Chaturanga de Silva, Sadeera Samarawickrama.
