IND vs SL 3rd ODI Probable Playing XI: The last match of the three ODI series between India and Sri Lanka (India vs Sri Lanka) is to be played today i.e. on January 15 in Thiruvananthapuram. Having won the first two matches of the series and made an unassailable 2-0 lead, Team India will be eyeing to sweep the visitors in the last ODI. In such a situation, Rohit Sharma can make changes in the playing eleven to test the bench strength. So far, Suryakumar Yadav, Washington Sundar, Ishaan Kishan and Arshdeep Singh have not got a chance in this ODI series. After winning the second ODI, when Rohit was asked about the change in the playing XI, he said that if India has to play a further three-match series against New Zealand, then he wants to keep the players fresh. The upcoming long season is also on his mind. In such a situation, he can make changes if necessary. So come which players can get a chance in the playing XI today-
Is KL Rahul a better captain than Hardik Pandya, know Andy Flower’s answer
The chances of Ishaan Kishan getting a chance in the last ODI are very less. The left-handed batsman, who held the record for the fastest double century in the last ODI of the Bangladesh tour, has not got a chance since the start of the series. Captain Rohit Sharma during this time chose Shubman Gill over Ishaan Kishan. Gill scored 70 runs in the first ODI, but in the second ODI he was dismissed trying to score fast runs. In such a situation, Rohit would like Gill to get more chances to show his talent.

Will Suryakumar Yadav get a chance in place of Shreyas Iyer?
Looking at the Indian Top 6, it does not seem that Suryakumar Yadav will be able to make his place in the playing XI. Barring Hardik Pandya, all the players in the top 6 have batting averages above 40. But when it comes to trying out the bench strength, then Rohit can give Surya a place in the team instead of Shreyas Iyer. Only 56 runs have come out of Iyer’s bat in the first ODI.
Sundar in place of Akshar and Arshdeep in place of Shami?
Akshar Patel has recently impressed with his batting apart from his brilliant bowling, but Team India would not like to depend on a single all-rounder spinner. In such a situation, Rohit can give a chance to Washington Sundar in his place in today’s match. Sundar has played 12 ODIs so far, scoring 212 runs at an average of 35.33, while also taking 14 wickets in bowling. On the other hand, if we talk about Arshdeep, then it seems a bit difficult for him to make a place in the playing XI. Mohammed Shami has returned to Team India after a long time, in which case he is still finding his rhythm. Rohit would like to give Shami a few more chances now.
