Men in Blue would like to continue their dominant run against a clueless Sri Lankan side in the fourth ODI at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo on Thursday. India have convincingly beaten Sri Lanka in the first three ODIs and have taken an unassailable lead in the five-match series.
In the last match at Pallekele, opener Rohit Sharma (124 not out) and former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni (67 not out) guided India to a series-clinching six-wicket win. Fast bowler - Jasprit Bumrah also played his part as he picked up his maiden fifer in ODIs.
In the upcoming matches, skipper Virat Kohli has hinted to make changes in the playing XI after playing with the unchanged squad in the first three ODIs. Batsmen Ajikya Rahane, Manish Pandey along with Kuldeep Yadav and medium-pacer Shardul Thakur may fancy their chances of getting picked up in the Indian side.
For Sri Lanka, the injury woes look to pile up with stand-in captain Chamara Kapugedera ruled out for the rest of the series with a back injury. Experienced pacer Lasith Malinga will lead Sri Lanka in the remaining matches looking to re-work plans for the home side. The Sri Lankan batting will depend upon openers Niroshan Dickwella, Dinesh Chandimal along with middle-order batsman Lahiru Thirimanne who played a vital knock in the previous match.
India: Virat Kohli (C), Mahendra Singh Dhoni (wicketkeeper), Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kedar Jadhav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Lokesh Rahul, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Hardik Pandya, Ajinkya Rahane, Manish Pandey, Kuldeep Yadav, Shardul Thakur.
