After Sri Lanka's heroics in the 1st ODI against India, it seemed as if Lankans are going to stamp their authority in the series. Bowing out India for a paltry 112was a big achievement. However, what followed after the 1st ODIis what concerns Sri Lanka. Before we discuss their concerns, let's take a look at what all happened in the 3rd ODI. 3rd ODI match report India won the toss and decided tobowl first. Vizag has been a batting paradise but keeping the dew factor in mind,captain Rohit Sharma decided to field first. The way Sri Lanka began despite losing a quick wicket in form ofDanushka Gunathilaka at the score of 13 might have made Rohit regret the decision at the toss. The second Sri Lankan wicket fell on 136 runs asSadeera Samarawickrama was caught off the bowling of Yuzvendra Chahal at the boundary for 42. This was a start of a self-destruction, the Sri Lankan style. From 136 for 2, Sri Lanka were bowled out for 215 runs, all in a matter of 22 overs. The jokes were all aroundTwitter. One of the most famous ones read like this - Sri Lanka's second wicket gone, now starts their tail. It takes a Sri Lankan team effort to turn a joke into reality. Between the overs 22.3 and 44.5, they made 79 runs and lost 8 wickets. When India came to bat, they lost Rohit Sharma for only 7 and this was a great start for Sri Lanka. The double-century maker ofthe last game was back in thehut andhere was an opportunity to put more pressure on the hosts. How do you do that? You try and bowl better, suck the flow of runs by fielding well, protect singles and doubles. Sri Lanka's plan was a different one. They did not do anything.Shikhar Dhawan and Shreyas Iyer made a mockery of the bowling attack, putting up 135 runs for the second wicket and in the process, Iyercompleted his second fifty in two games. Dhawan, deservingly, hit his 12th ODI hundredandalong with Dinesh Karthik finished the match in just 32.1 overs. Indiaclinched the series 2-1, after being 0-1 down. Sri Lanka's woes Throughout the series or should we say throughout this year, Sri Lanka's problem has not been skills but the lack of self-confidence. The lack of self-confidence has denied them a Shreyas Iyer or a Yuzvendra Chahal or a Kuldeep Yadav.In the 2nd ODI when Rohit Sharma started pelting the bowlers, the Lankans ran out of ideas. There isn't trump card left inthe team anymore, who can pick wickets at will.The search seems to benever-ending as well. In the 2nd ODI, they used as many as 7 bowlers and in the 3rd, the number increased to 8. It clearly shows that there is no method andplanning used to play one of the best ODI sides in the world in their home. Next up are the T20Is and shorter the format, better the chances to win. Sri Lanka can end their dismal year on a high and what a better way to do that - beating India in India. Hopefully, they will listen to their great past andmake their present a better place.
