The Sri Lankan side which faced an unexpected defeat in the second test match has various issues to address, and the major one being the injuries faced by their key players.

Captain Angelo Mathews who was expected to retain his fitness is still struggling with that hamstring injury, and in all probabilities, he will not play this game.

In his absence, Upul Tharanga who captained the Sri Lankan side during the One-Day Internationals in South Africa and Zimbabwe will lead the side.
