With the series already lost 2-0, Sri Lanka will play for pride against India in the third and final ODI on Sunday in Thiruvananthapuram (January 15). Although there are no Super League points on the line in this pointless match, Sri Lanka does have one last opportunity to qualify for the 2023 World Cup automatically when they play New Zealand at home later in India, and a victory before that would do their confidence the world of good.
The World Cup hosts, on the other hand, have a busy multi-format home season ahead with at least 12 more ODIs and an Asia Cup to play after this, and the management would be concerned about the players' workload. The expected changes for the series finale were not yet considered, according to skipper Rohit Sharma at the Eden Gardens. "Once we go there, we'll have a look at the ground and have a look at some of our men," he added. "We need to keep the guys fresh since we have three ODIs left against New Zealand. We need to keep everything in mind because we still have a long season ahead of us. Changes will be made if necessary "Added he.
India could make some changes in the bowling department to control the bowlers' workload if not in the batting order, where the team management has backed Shubman Gill and a newly demoted vice-captain KL Rahul despite the scorching white-ball form of Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav. Arshdeep Singh, the team's lone left-arm pacer, may see action as India looks to test the depth of their bench ahead of the World Cup.
Should India's preferred wristspinner Yuzvendra Chahal recover fully, attention will once again be on Kuldeep Yadav, who bowled wonderfully in Kolkata but may find himself sidelined once again after yet another Player of the Match effort, as in Bangladesh in the just finished Test series.
India now has a commanding 2-0 series lead after a flawless performance in Guwahati and a valiant victory in Kolkata. The hosts wouldn't want to let their guard down even in the dead rubber because they would be facing a tougher opponent in New Zealand just one week from now.
Cricket betting: D’Alembert Betting System
The only distinction between the D'Alembert and Martingale betting systems is the size of each subsequent wager.
The T20 World Cup warm-up games between Australia and New Zealand will serve as our example. You have made the decision to stake on New Zealand to win the match. As a result, this will be your first wager; if Australia manages to lose the game, your second wager will go up by one unit, or .
Simple algebra says that your second wager will be , but if you lose again, your third wager will increase by another unit (), bringing the total to . Let's say you get lucky this time and Australia triumphs. In the D'Alembert Betting System, winning entails lowering your stakes by one unit. Your fourth wager will be again as a result.
Choosing cricket matches and outcomes with odds of 3.0 or higher is advised by experts if you also want to make up for prior losses. These transactions carry a little bit more risk than those with 2.0 odds, but they'll make sure you don't start another losing streak at zero.
The Reverse D'Alembert System is the most popular of the D'Alembert Betting System's variants.
Here, everything deviates from the traditional D'Alembert System. If you succeed, you raise your wager by one unit; if you lose, you lower it.
