India vs Sri Lanka 4th ODI Live Streaming
MS Dhoni has played a couple wonderful knocks to help India win the last couple of ODIs in Sri Lanka. In the last game he rose to the occasion with Rohit Sharma and scored a handy 67 to make sure that his side gets over the line. However, Sri Lankans couldn’t really do much to make sure that they keep the series alive and lost it all with their defeat in the 3rd ODI. All they have to do now is to do some face-saving and make sure that do not have to play the qualifying round for the next ICC Cricket Worldcup. They will surely do everything they can for winning it this time.
The good thing for India from the last game was that Rohit Sharma blasted a wonderful 124 and made sure that he stays on the crease until his side gets over the line. Another thing that goes in Indias favor is how MS Dhoni has played in last couple of matches to secure back-to-back victories for them. So, these two will be the real strength for India in the next game. But Indian middle order will really have to fight back and at least a couple of batsmen from the likes of Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Manish Pandey will have to play a big knock to post a good enough total on the board.
India might give ODI cap to Shardul Thakur and strengthen their bowling attack with some young blood. Kuldeep Yadav is also expected to come into the side with his chinamen. All eyes will be on Bumrah, however, who picked up 5 wickets in the last ODI quite cheaply.
Sri Lanka Strengths
As for Sri Lanka, they’d like to take strength from the experience of Lasith Malinga by giving him the leading role. Besides, they’d want Thirimanne to play another anchoring knock as he played in the last game with his hard-earned 80 in the middle. But Dickwella, Mendis and Munaweera – who is expected to get the ODI cap in the next game – will have to give them a good enough start from the top. Siriwardana, Dananjaya and Pushpakumara – the debutante all-rounder – will be expected to take responsibility of power hitting towards the second half of the innings.
As far as Sri Lankan bowling is concerned, they don’t have any big names except Lasit Malinga and he will be expected to stay the center of strength for them by providing some quick wickets up front. Besides, a spell similar to the one in 2nd ODI will be expected from Akila Dananjaya in the next ODI. Let’s see how Sri Lankan bowlers cope up with the challenge.
