SLvsIND: 4th ODI:31st Aug
After The White Wash Of The Test Series, India Was Planning To Do The Same In One Day Internationals, Which Is Going At The Moment. But Srilanka On The Other Side Have Different Mind Sets To Play The Series. As Everything Is Going Wrong And Nothing Is Going On Their Favor. Srilankan Team Are Giving Under Performance, As Most Of Their Star Players Retired Early This Year. It’s A Tough Task For The Srilanka Cricket Board (SCB) To Pull This Team To A Better Position.
When The Team Is Trying To Come Out Of This Situation, Injuries Of Most Of The Players Again Push The Team To Back Stage. Even 3 Captain Were Named For This ODI Series Due To Injuries. The Regular Captain Upul Tharanga Was Suspended For 2 Matches By ICC For The Slow Over Rate. So Stand-In Captain Chamara Capugedera Was Appointed As Captain For The Next 2 Matches. But In The Previous ODI, He Decided To Opt Out Of The Series As He Encountered Back Injury In The Match Played Last Sunday.
So The Srilankan Board Appointed Fast Bowler Lasith Malinga To Lead The Srilankan Side For The 4th ODI To Be Played Against India At Khettarama Stadium On 31st August. India Leads The Five Match Series 3 Nil. Here Are Some Tweets:-

Malinga Is The 3rd Captain To Lead Srinlanka In The Series. So It’s A Golden Opportunity For Him To Grab The Rest 2 Match As Captain. And For That Is Has To Perform Well For His Team. Currently, He Has A Record Of 299 Wickets In ODI And Needs 1 Wicket More To Make It 300. Which Is A Huge Figure In World Cricket. Previously Malinga Has Shown His Character By Winning The ICC World T20 2014 Under His Captaincy.
Yes, I was right. Today’s birthday boy Lasith Malinga to lead #SriLanka in the 4th ODI. Becoming 21st ODI Capt, needs 1wkt for 300.#SLvIND
