Indian cricket team is sweating hard to win the ODI series against Sri Lanka. Both the teams have won one match each in the tri match series. If the Men in Blue succeed tomorrow this will be the first series victory under the captainship of Rohit Sharma.

After facing an embarrassing 7 wicket defeat in the first ODI, the team came back strongly in the second match thanks to skipper Rohit Sharma’s record breaking double ton to win the match by 141 runs and leveled the series 1-1. Young batsman Shreyas Iyer too scored his maiden half-century in the last match.

With such a splendid victory the team is brimming with confidence and will leave no stone unturned to repeat their performance in the third match.
