Cricket live score: India vs Sri Lanka 4th ODI Kolkata

India won the toss and elected to bat first in the 4th ODI against Sri Lanka being played at Kolkata on Nov 13, 2014.

It has been entirely different outcomes for the two teams in the series so far, but yet the duo will be getting on to the field sharing a similar vision ahead of the World Cup.

Virat Kolhi loses the toss

While India would be deploying a bunch of replacements to carry on with the momentum, Sri Lanka would also be sticking to same plans, but hoping to pull out a consolation from their current Indian outing.

The Indian dressing room is far more than relaxed having clinched the series as early as they could. And if there is someone who wouldn’t feel as relaxed as the team, it would be the selectors who would be in constant monitoring of the young talents Virat Kohli would be deploying in the upcoming match.

Shikhar Dhawan, Ravindra Jadeja, Amit  Mishra, Wriddhiman Saha, Ishant Sharma, Murali Vijay, Varun Aaron and Mohammed Shami have been granted rest, and that will witness the return of some fine talents back to cricketing turf.

Rohit Sharma will be making his ODI comeback after being sidelined since the England tour and alongside him will be Robin Uthappa clinching his chance ahead of the World Cup.

Karn Sharma can be seen capping his maiden ODI while it would be a touch call to expect the inclusion of Kedhar Jadhav in the next game. Vinay Kumar would also be having his chance to lead the pace attack to bring out some impact in his final chance.

While it’s no joyous mood within the Sri Lankan dressing room, they would also be having a massive rotation with the squad so as to find the balance which they have been missing in this quickly brought up series.

Ajantha Mendis and Shaminda Eranga have been bought back, which gives hope for a solace in the series. Dinesh Chandimal and Lahiru Thirimanne also would be making it to the final XI, which would be missing the presence of Sangakkara, Dhammika Prasad, Suraj Randiv and Upul Tharanga.

Former skipper Mahela Jayawardene believes the right balance to be a key in bringing the boost despite being inefficient to clinch a single win. “Even though we did well in some departments, we have not yet clicked as a whole so we’re disappointed. Hopefully, we will get things right and play good cricket on Thursday” said the 37 year old whose ton went in vain in the third ODI at Hyderabad.
