India vs Sri Lanka 4th ODI Preview
The series has now come to it’s business end, it could all be over if India clinches in the final ODI. But if Srilanka mnage to hold on it could all go to the last ODI. Indian team is on a high at the momment because everything except for second ODI has gone their way. They has picked up early wickets and have batted extremely well.
But SriLanka has been on the backfoot everytime Indian is on attack one good example is the batting on Suresh Raina in the previous match, when all looked good for India but when Raina charged the attack it look all dismade for the Srilankan team. The things are not looking good Srilankans especially after Sangakara gained a injury in the last match.

For Indian team it’s now time to go for the kill. They must not now allow to get a win under their belt. Because anything could happen in the last ODI. There are few worrying factors for the Indian team. Firstly, Rohit Sharma’s form he is not in the greatest of the form in this series, no doubt he is a great talent but Indian team can’t ignore Ti-way for much of the time. Ghambir said after end of the previous match: “the death bowling should improve”. Indian pace attack leaked far too easy runs in the lat encounter.
Especially, when picked up two important wicket by the end of the over number 40. But Indian team looked super class as it is, the tracks suit their style of batting and their isn’t much thread from the opposition except Malinga. This is the reason why Indians are ahead in this series.
For Srilankans,they should lift themselves up especially after conceding two mighty blows in the previous match. Jayawardena is cool captain he is been before in these types of circumstances many times. So, his inputs during the sixth ODI could play a defiant role in the Srilankan team progress this series. Thrimanne would be the one replacing the veteran Snagakara, but he is not in best of the forms. So, how Srilankan batting will react after going Sanga would be one factor to be watched out during the 4th ODI.
The Srilankan need to be mentally strong now because its now do or die situation for the team. One factor they should consider big time is their approach regarding playing the new ball they have been loosing far too easy wickets with the new ball, here Dilshan is key for the campaign.
India: Won, Loss, Won
