After losing out on the test series against the host nation India, Sri Lanka is all set to get back to their winning momentum in the three-match one-day internationals which will be followed by three t20 matches. In the test series, the Sri Lankans failed to make an impact but with a little luck, they saved themselves from a humiliation by drawing the other two test matches after losing to India in the second test match. India’s skipper Virat Kohli has been rested so, Rohit Sharma will take his mantle and lead the host team to a clean sweep of the away team. However, the ton put up by Angelo Matthews, Dhananjaya De Silva and Captain Dinesh Chandimal in the last test match has boosted their confidence.

It can easily make out that the pitch here usually offers a lot of runs. Since the ground is located at a high altitude, the ball travels faster as well. In addition, the dew becomes a major factor in the evening if you’re playing during the September-March period. That’s the reason why teams prefer to chase at this venue.
