Imperious Dhawan could continue his fine form in Pallekele

India 1-4 to wrap up series

Third ODI
9am Sunday

As was the case in the recent Test series, India have totally outclassed Sri Lanka in their two ODI meetings over the past week.

Virat Kohli's men are 1-4 to complete a series victory with two matches to spare in Pallekele on Sunday morning and given their domination, it is hard to argue with the layers' stance.

Sri Lanka's task is made more difficult in the absence of skipper Upal Tharanga after he was given a two-match suspension for a slow over-rate in Thursday's three-wicket defeat. Chamara Kapugedera will lead the side in his absence.

He will have to get the most out of an underperforming attack who have taken just eight wickets in the two matches - seven of which came in game two.

Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan has been just one of India's top order to cash in, hitting 132 not out in the first rubber, and he followed that up with 49 on Thursday.

Dhawan has been in tremendous form in 2017 with 692 in 14 ODI knocks at an average of 53.23. At 10-3, he is a value wager to continue his fine run on Sunday by topping India's runscoring chart.
