Let us tell you that the staff and priests of the temple premises present there, including the players of Team India, are all in traditional clothes for the Padmanabhaswamy temple worship, whose pictures are now going viral on social media.
Virat-Rohit could not be seen
Ahead of the third ODI, several players went to the Padmanabhaswamy temple to pay obeisance. However, during this time players like team captain Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya were not seen. While Rohit and Hardik decided to relax at the team hotel, Virat Kohli was spotted with his wife at the beach in Thiruvananthapuram.
India have an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series
Team India has taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series by winning the first two matches of the three ODI series. India defeated Sri Lanka by 67 runs in the first ODI in Guwahati, while winning the series by 4 wickets in the second match played at the historic Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
In such a situation, now the third ODI match has become just a formality for India. However, despite this, Team India would like to hit the ground with full vigor and make a clean sweep by winning the series 3-0.
India’s probable team for the third ODI- Rohit Sharma (Captain), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul (Wicketkeeper), Hardik Pandya, Akshar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Shami, Umran Malik, Mohammed Siraj.
