Sri Lanka tour of India, 3rd ODI: India v Sri Lanka at Jaipur, Oct 31, 2005
India won by 6 wickets (with 23 balls remaining)
31 October 2005 (50-over match)

Match State: Match start scheduled for 9am local time (3.30am GMT) Hello and welcome to Cricinfo's live coverage of the ODI series between India and Sri Lanka. From Mohali now we move to Jaipur for the third match of the series and Sawai Mansingh Stadium will play host to this crunch game. At this stage India lead the 7 match series 2-0 and Sri Lanka will be under tremendous pressure to perform well today. A win here today will leave India needing just one more victory from the next four matches to clinch the series and Sri Lanka will have to win the next four matches to do so. The stage is nicely set-up and we are in for a thriller - that's for sure. Lankans will be low on confidence after the two humiliating losses that they sustained in the first two matches and the fans will be hoping for a much better performance today from the number two ranked side. News from the middle is that the Sri Lankan captain Marvan Atapattu has won the toss and elected to bat first. Sri Lanka have made one change to the team that played in the second match - Nuwan Zoysa is out and in comes Thilan Samaraweera. India go in with the same eleven, Suresh Raina is the SuperSub for today's match. It looks like a decent batting track but there are few cracks here and there and they could come in to play as the day progresses. It's certainly a 'win the toss and bat first' track, now it's up to batsmen to put up a defendable total. Kumar Sangakkara and Sanath Jayasuriya will open the innings and it will be Irfan Pathan to start the bowling attack. Two slips and a gully in place - here we go!
