It is reported that some major changes are going to be made in the Sri Lankan team in the third one-day cricket match between Sri Lanka and Zimbabwe to be held at the R. Premadasa Stadium Colombo.
Accordingly, it is said that former captains Dasun Shanaka and Avishka Fernando are likely to be removed from the team. It is reported that instead of Dasun and Avishka, all-rounder Nuwanidu Fernando and Shevon Daniel may get the opportunity today.
Pathum Nishanka, who was ruled out of the tournament due to dengue fever, has now been discharged from the hospital, but his participation in the upcoming T20 series against Zimbabwe is still uncertain. In that case, the opportunity may be given to Shevon Daniel.
Today’s match is a crucial one for both the teams and even finishing the match without a win or a loss is enough for Sri Lanka to win the tournament. But for the Zimbabwe team, which is already trailing 1-0, it is mandatory to win this match.
However, although the playing team has not yet been named today, Chief Selection Committee Chairman Upul Tharanga has confirmed that some changes will be made to the squad for the final ODI. The Sri Lanka Cricket has arranged to give the Sri Lankan sports fans an opportunity to watch this match for free.
