LIVE Cricket Score, India vs Sri Lanka 2017 4th ODI: The Sri Lankan unit will be led by Lasith Malinga, the same man who led them to their T20 World Cup title, a few years back. On the other hand, Virat Kohli might be tempted to give chances to a few players.
Live Score, India vs Sri Lanka 4th ODI 

The series already sealed with an unassailable 3-0 lead, Virat Kohli's next aim would be to give a chance to players who have only warmed the benches so far such as Kuldeep Yadav, Manish Pandey, Ajinkya Rahane and Shardul Thakur.


Kohli himself had a couple of low-scoring games and he would look to get back to scoring some more runs along with KL Rahul, who has not exactly looked comfortable in an unfamiliar No. 4 position. The India captain has already hinted that he wants to rotate players and chinaman Kuldeep may get a look-in. In that case, either Yuzvendra Chahal or Axar Patel will make way.


When the One-day International series with Sri Lanka was in its initial stages, the focus on Mahendra Singh Dhoni was more about his future, with conjectures on whether he was close to the end of his career.


But as the series progressed, two undefeated match-winning innings, combined with some fluent work behind the stumps have effectively silenced all those voices.


Now, with the 4th ODI of the series to be played on Thursday, the focus is on two landmarks that the veteran is closing in on - 100 stumpings in ODIs and 73 not out innings in the same format, which will both be world records.


In fourth ODI, the Sri Lankan unit will be led by Lasith Malinga, the same man who led them to their T20 World Cup title, a few years back. As far as India is considered, all looks good at the moment. With series in the kitty, the team management might be tempted to give chances to a few players.


Manish Pandey might be included in the playing XI in place of Kedar Jadhav and Kuldeep Yadav would also be hopeful of a chance. Among batsmen, KL Rahul is in desperate need of runs. He has struggled at number 4 so far and needs to find the form fast.


Playing Conditions: The last ODI at this venue was played 12 months back so it is hard to tell how the wicket will behave. The team batting first would be aiming at least 275-280 runs to put themselves in a comfortable position. The conditions are expected to be cloudy with thunderstorms forecast for the evening, which could lead to a curtailed game.
