SL won the toss & opted to field first.
Shikhar Dhawan: “We wanted to have a bowl first as there’s dampness in the pitch but we are capable of putting a good score on board. It’s about giving opportunities to new players and see how they perform and have a good chance for the upcoming World Cup. We got lots of changes, two debutants for us. Prithvi Shaw and Varun Chakravarthy.”
Dasun Shanaka: “We are going to bowl first. I think the wicket will play better in the latter part of the game. We can’t control the injuries and it can change the momentum as well. These three games are very important for us and we have got two debutants. We got three changes from the last ODI. Isuru Udana comes back.”
