KL Rahul has played 2 innings in this ODI series. He is the second-highest run scorer for India and the series with 103 runs at an average of 103. We are backing him to be the top run scorer for India in the next outing. Mohammad Siraj has picked 5 wickets for team India this series and we are going with him to be the top wicket-taker for India.
Dasun Shanaka is the highest run-scorer for Sri Lanka in this series with 110 runs just below Virat Kohli in the most runs list. We are rooting for him to be the highest run-scorer for Sri Lanka in the next match as well. Kasun Rajitha has picked 4 wickets in the last 2 matches and he is our pick for the top wicket-taker for Sri Lanka.
We pick KL Rahul for the Player of the Match award as he has the best average in this ongoing ODI series.
Sri Lanka vs India Chance of Winning
India has already sealed the series after winning 2 consecutive matches against the visitors. They also dominated them in the T20 series by winning the series by 2-1. India will now aim to whitewash Sri Lanka in the ODI series.
Sri Lanka on the other hand has been getting thrashed this entire tour by the Indian team. First, they lost in the T20i series and now lost in the ODI series as well against India. Sri Lanka will hope to win the last match of the series and register their first win in the ODI series on 15th January 2023.
With the ongoing winning momentum continuing to be on India’s side we are putting our faith in India for the forthcoming 3rd ODI. Thus, we predict a 90/10 winning chance in favour of India.
India is clearly the stronger side than Sri Lanka here as seen in the recent matches of the tour. Sri Lanka is not able to score or defend on this Indian surface against this Indian side. Although they have put up some fight for the hosts, it is not enough to get them to the winning side.

Sri Lanka vs India 3rd ODI Prediction & Betting Tips 2022
We can evidently see that India has higher odds of winning the final encounter against Sri Lanka as they are already in the winning position. Furthermore, we have noticed that Sri Lanka batsmen were able to score big runs in just one match which they ended up winning in this entire tour.
Hence, if Sri Lanka bats first in the 3rd ODI we expect them to score 250 runs. If India bats first, the expected first-innings score is 310 plus in the 50-over quota.
KL Rahul and Mohammad Siraj from India are the players to watch out for in this game.

Sri Lanka vs India Match Toss Prediction
The 3rd and final outing between the teams will take place at Greenfield International Stadium, Thiruvananthapuram. The ground will host its second One Day International match on 15th January 2023. The first One Day International was between West Indies and India in 2018 which was a low-scoring game as West Indies was bowled out at just 104 runs. The surface supports spin and bounces at the same time and we expect that the spinners will enjoy playing at this venue. Hence, we can expect that the team winning the toss will elect to bowl in the upcoming game.
The weather at Greenfield International Stadium, Thiruvananthapuram, is forecasted to have a maximum temperature of 28°c. There will be a wind flow which can help seamers get some swing. The chances of rain are very mere, hence, the teams need not worry about DLS and par score. It should be perfect weather for a match of cricket.
India Player List
India Squad – Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (wk), Hardik Pandya, Washington Sundar, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah, Axar Patel, Ishan Kishan, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Umran Malik, Arshdeep Singh, Rohit Sharma ©, Shubman Gill
India Predicted Playing XI
|KL Rahul||Wicket Keeper|
|Hardik Pandya||Bowling All-rounder|
|Axar Patel||Bowling All-rounder|
India Team Form
First a T20i series win and now ODI series win, this India side is ruling against Sri Lanka at the start of the year. It won’t be wrong to declare India as the No.1 ODI team in the World.
Rohit Sharma will continue to lead the Indian side. Virat Kohli is a player to watch out for in the Indian camp. He played an impressive knock of 113 runs while batting first in the 1st ODI match. Kuldeep Yadav bowled wonderfully for his 3 wickets and was awarded Man of the Match in the 2nd ODI match.
Overall, India looks in great touch and in a strong position to win the 3rd ODI and whitewash Sri Lanka in the ODI series.
Sri Lanka Player List
Sri Lanka squad – Kusal Mendis (wk), Avishka Fernando, Charith Asalanka, Dhananjaya de Silva, Dasun Shanaka (c), Wanindu Hasaranga, Chamika Karunaratne, Maheesh Theekshana, Dilshan Madushanka, Lahiru Kumara, Ashen Bandara, Nuwanidu Fernando, Sadeera Samarawickrama, Kasun Rajitha, Dunith Wellalage, Pramod Madushan, Jeffrey Vandersay, Pathum Nissanka
Nuwanidu Fernando made a dream debut against India by scoring a half-century. He will now have to make his place in the team by performing against India as well.
Sri Lanka predicted playing XI:
|Kusal Mendis||Wicket Keeper|
|Dhananjaya de Silva||Batting All-rounder|
|Chamika Karunaratne||Batting All-rounder|
|Wanindu Hasaranga||Bowling All-rounder|
Sri Lanka Team Form
Sri Lanka has been in terrible form in this series. They could manage to win just once in this tour despite having players such as Wanindu Hasaranga and Kusal Mendis. After getting crushed in the T20i series, their performance remains constant in the ODI too.
The batsman and as well as the bowlers need to fire up their game for Sri Lanka. The batsmen have not been able to put enough runs on the board. The highest run-scorer for Sri Lanka in the ODI series has 110 runs to his name but without a win. Bowlers also could not pick up wickets.
If Sri Lanka aims to win and register their first win in the upcoming match they need both departments to roar up against India.

India vs Sri Lanka Betting Odds
After assessing the team’s form and possible scenarios, the betting odds are completely in favour of India. The odds in favour of India winning are 1.2, while the odds of Sri Lanka winning are 4.5. These betting odds have been calculated based on the team’s performance in the previous matches, players’ records, pitch and other factors.
India vs Sri Lanka Top Team Batsmen
KL Rahul is the second-highest run-scorer for India in the ODI series. Not only that, He looked in great touch in the last ODI match and we are confident that he will carry his form in the 3rd game.
Nuwanidu Fernando showed some resistance against the Indian bowling attack in the 2nd ODI. He will shoulder the responsibility of scoring runs by opening for Sri Lanka.
Dasun Shanaka, the second-highest run-scorer in this series can be seen scoring runs in the forthcoming match against India.
India vs Sri Lanka Top Team Bowlers
Wanindu Hasaranga needs to step up to restrict the India batters. He is expected to take 1 or more wickets.
Mohammad Siraj from the India team picked up 3 wickets in the 2nd ODI. He is back in the Indian panel and won’t go leave his place easily. We expect him to take 2 wickets at minimum.
With the ODI World Cup just 10 months ahead of us, India has gained more confidence from this tour and considering the odds and other factors, we are predicting that India will beat Sri Lanka.
