August 12, 2017 09:57 am
Indian skipper Virat Kohli won the toss and elected to bat first hoping to seal an elusive series whitewash in Sri Lanka.
After receiving a severe drubbing in the first two-tests the Lankan side will aim to bounce-back strongly by acquiring a consolation victory in the hill-capital. The lions have been hampered however by unfortunate injuries to spin wizard Rangana Herath and opener Danushka Gunathilaka.
Newly included Dushantha Chameera will be rearing to go having being included as a back-up pace option for the Sri Lankans.
The Indians will field a strong outfit with only Ravindra Jadeja missing out due to his ban. The players will step out to do battle at a picturesque Pallekele grounds hoping to keep their nations flag flying high.
