SL vs IND Today Match Prediction, 3rd ODI, 23rd July 2021

KhelTalk is the only destination that brings you the finest today’s match prediction that you can trust. We are here for SL vs. IND Today Match Prediction, 3rd ODI, Online Cricket Betting Tips, which will provide every user with a clear picture of which team and in what aspect they can place their bets.


India has already sealed the series after an exciting thriller win in 2nd ODI. India was down and out at one stage, but Deepak Chahar and Bhuvneshwar Kumar helped India register the win. Batting first, Srilanka posted a respectable total of 275. In reply, India was cruising towards victory at one stage, but Hasaranga and Shanaka’s regular blows restricted India to 193-7 with 15 overs to go.  When almost everyone lost hope, India again pulled off a magnificent victory, the same as 3 years ago when Dhoni and Bhuvneshwar took India home after the batting order collapsed.

The 3rd ODI is a dead rubber game for India, but they would like to see some improvement from a batting point of view. In both ODIs, so far, Indian batters were very positive, maybe over positive. Young Indian batting lineup needs to calm down their nerves and bat according to the situation. Suryakumar Yadav seems to be in a different zone right now and would want to score big in the last ODI to cement his place in white-ball cricket. Indeed after the comeback of Shreyas Iyer, it will be interesting to see whom India will choose. Bowling looked good but needs to be more ruthless and kill the Srilankan tail as soon as possible because runs in back ends by tail are hurting India again.

  • Deepak’s 69 runs is the highest score of an Indian at 8th position in ODIs.
  • Ishan Kishan and Surya Kumar made T20I and ODI debut together.
  • India has chased most 270 plus scores in ODIs.the 

Top Batsmen from series 

  • Shikhar Dhawan– 115 runs at 86.47 strike rate 
  • Suryakumar Yadav– 84 runs at a 131.25 strike rate 
  • Deepak Chahar- 69 runs at 84.15 strike rate 

Top Bowler from series 

  • Yuzvendra Chahal- 5 wickets in 20 overs at 20.40 average 
  • Deepak Chahar– 4 wickets in 15 overs at 22.50 average 
  • Bhuvneshwar Kumar- 3 wickets in 19 overs at 39.00 average 


Srilanka’s lousy run continues in ODIs. They were very close to finally registering an ODI win against India, first after 2012 on Srilankan soil. Srilanka made considerable improvements in every department after 1st ODI’s bashing from India. At one stage, they were favorites to win the match when India was tumbling to 193-7, but heroics from Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Deepak spoiled their dream. Srilanka can take many positives from this match and finally break their losing streak against India.

Srilankan batting lineup showed exemplary commitment in this ODI, and Mickey Arthur will be hoping for the same as last ODI. Srilanka has lost the most matches in ICC  Cricket World Cup Super League, and the final ODI will be crucial for them. They have already lost 9 matches from 10 so far and going forward, it will get more challenging and more complicated for them. The 2nd ODI must have given Sri Lankans a new belief, and they can upset India in the last ODI.

  • Srilanka has lost most ODIs against India. 
  • Kuldeep Yadav went wicketless 1st time against Srilanka after fulfilling his 10 over quota.
  • Lakshan Sandakan has the worst economy for Srilanka after playing 30 ODIs.

Top Batsmen of Srilanka from series 

  • Asalanka- 103 runs at 77.44 strike rate
  • C Karunaratne– 87 runs at 127.94 strike rate
  • Avishka Fernando- 83 runs at 78.30 strike rate

Top Bowler of Srilanka from series

  • Wanindu Hasaranga- 3 wickets in 19 overs at 27.33 average 
  • Lakshan Sandakan- 2  wickets in 18.4 overs at 62.00 average 
  • Dhananjaya de Silva- 2 wickets in 8 overs at 29.50 average

SL vs IND– Who will win the match, Today Match Prediction:

India expected to win the match against Srilanka

KhelTalk experts feel that India will again win against Srilanka and whitewash them. So far in the series, India has been the most dominant side, and after winning the 2nd ODI from losing position, it will boost their confidence extremely high. Srilanka was good in the 2nd ODI and almost won the match, but there are some tweaks and touches to do. India started as favorites and is playing as per expectations, and we think India will again win against Srilanka.

Top Batsman from India – Shikhar Dhawan (3.00 odds)

Shikhar Dhawan has been the best batsman for India in ODIs in 2021. On this tour, he is playing a 2nd fiddle role to support the Indian young guns. After magnificent innings in 1st ODI, Shikhar Dhawan started innings more positively in 2nd ODI, but regular wickets from the other end disturbed his concentration as he eventually got out on 29 runs to Hasaranga. Going into the 3rd ODI, he will be under less pressure as India has already sealed the series and everyone knows that no one can stop him when he gets going. He is our best pick for a batsman from India.

Top Batsman from Srilanka– Avishka Fernando(4.33 odds)

Young Avishka Fernando finally registered the first fifty of 2021 in the 2nd ODI. He has looked good so far in the series but wasn’t able to capitalize on the starts. In the 2nd ODI, he was looking to score big but again showed immaturity and played a rash shot. Avishka Fernando is regarded as the next big thing in Srilankan cricket, and there are so many expectations from him. After so much backing from management, it’s high time for him to perform. He has looked good so far in the series, and that’s why he is our pick for best batsman from Srilanka.

Top Bowler from India– Bhuvneshwar Kumar (3.75 odds)

Bhuvneshwar Kumar finally looked in good form in the last ODI. In 1st ODI, he conceded 63 runs at an economy of 7, and questions were started raising against him. Recently against England, he made his comeback after a long-term knee injury. In 2021, he looked out of form. His economy is 6.38 in 2021, which is expensive for a bowler like Bhuvneshwar Kumar.

He picked 3 wickets in 2nd ODI, which will boost his confidence. He has picked 20 wickets against Srilanka in ODIs. His form with the new ball is still a question. Bhuvneshwar has been the best Indian bowler for some time now, and after a lean patch, he looked good in the 2nd ODI. We expect him to do further good on the 3rd ODI and silence critics. He is our pick for best bowler from India.

Top Bowler from Srilanka – Wanindu Hasaranga (3.75 odds)

Wanindu Hasaranga again came to rescue Srilanka and nearly took them home. He has been in great form in 2021 and is the best bowler for them. Whether it’s ball or bat, he has contributed to the team. He picked 3 crucial wickets in 2nd ODI and only conceded 1 run in 48th over of the match in the crunch moment. He came into the limelight after picking 8 wickets at an astonishing average of 9.88 on Srilanka’s tour of Pakistan. Since then, he has never looked back. His unknown mystery leg-break bowling can be dangerous for the Indian side. He is the only bowler who has looked threatening for Srilanka. He is our pick for best bowler from Srilanka.
