Having won the series, India will be keen to whitewash Sri Lanka in the third ODI. This game will happen on Sunday in Thiruvananthapuram. Here, we look at the pitch report of Greenfield International Stadium and the weather conditions in Thiruvananthapuram for IND vs SL 2023.
With nothing on the line, we might also expect India to make one or two changes. If Rohit Sharma wins the toss, he could opt to bat first to check the defending ability of the squad. This would help the team in the long run. It will be interesting to see if Yuzvendra Chahal replaces Kuldeep Yadav. Chahal had a fitness issue and hence, Kuldeep got the chance. However, the player became the Man of the Match. Hence, it would be a tough call for the management to make.
For Sri Lanka, the focus will be to gain some more experience against a tough opposition. They have good players and they just need to gel together for a proper performance. They can target to make that happen in Trivandrum on Sunday.

Till now, only ODI has happened at this venue. In that game, West Indies could make just 104 runs and it was an easy win for Team India.
Generally, this track is good for the batters and for the spinners, too, if they can extract some spin, will have a good day. Seamers, though, will enjoy the track at this venue.
